Media Matters

 During this unit, students will continue to explore phonological awareness, phonics, and print awareness for the purpose of understanding the connection between reading and writing. They will work with letters and sounds to decode vc, cvc, ccvc, and cvcc words in text and independent of context. With adult assistance, students will identify the purposes and forms of media (e.g., advertisements, newspapers, radio programs) and identify media techniques such as sound and movement while continuing to utilize the reading processes. Students will identify important facts, retell the order of events, and recognize media during read alouds and shared readings. They will continue to write or dictate stories in chronological order using the writing process and appropriate conventions. Students will begin to revise their stories by adding details and sentences.

Coin Identification

During this unit, students will explore traditional and special edition pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. Students will use sorting and classifying skills to discern distinguishing features and identify U.S. coins by name. The emphasis in Kindergarten is on identification only and not on value, relationships, or counting collections.







Exploring Organisms and Environment

Students will use their senses as a tool of observation to identify properties of organisms in the environment. They will learn to sort plants and animals into groups based on physical characteristics such as color, size, body covering, or leaf shape. Additionally, students will identify parts of plants such as roots, stem, and leaves and parts of animals such as head, eyes, and limbs. They will also identify ways that young plants resemble the parent plant. Students will make predictions based on observable patterns in nature such as the shapes of leaves and observe changes that are part of a simple life cycle of a plant: seed, seedling, plant, flower, and fruit. Students will collect information using tools, ask questions about organisms, and record and organize data and observations using pictures, numbers, and words. Furthermore, students will explore that scientists, such as botanists and zoologists, investigate different things in the natural world and use tools to help in their investigations. Students will continue to communicate observations using appropriate vocabulary and simple types of graphs (including those using pictures or real-objects), numbers, and words, and practice safety during investigations.





Social Studies

Community Celebrations, Customs, and Family Traditions

Students will broaden the scope of community to include local, state, and national entities. Students will specifically study the customs associated with patriotic national holidays and the cultural heritage that is reflected in national customs and family traditions.
