FROM THE TEACHER’s DESK

 

GRAMMAR SCHOOL

Transitional Kindergarten (Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Luther)

Bible
  • This week  we completed applying class rules to Biblical character and development.  The children now have a good understanding that all we do is to the glory of God and to love our neighbors as ourselves.
  • Next week we begin learning about creation!
Theme Adventure
  • We continued caring for our garden plants.  We have many seedlings that are reaching for our class growing light.  Soon it will be time to transplant those sprouts!
  • The students have learned the identification of several types of nuts in our campus forest.  The students were tasked to forage the trails and to look for nuts. TK found walnuts, acorns and a couple of varieties the teachers were not familiar with.  We lovingly place the nuts back into the woods to leave for the squirrels in the coming weeks.
Literacy
  • We began using playdough to build letters.  This week we learned to identify and make the sound of the first letter of each student’s  name.
  • TK reviewed how to make curves and straight lines.  This is a pre-writing skill we will need next week as we begin work in our handwriting books!
  • TK continued to work on making predictions.  This week we used sequencing cards with varieties of common topics.  Students would be shown a card and they would predict what would come next.  Some of their favorite topics were making a sandwich, growing a pumpkin, and baking an apple pie!
  • We have begun singing songs about how to write letters and numbers.  Though actual scribing will not come for a bit these songs give them the knowledge to use and apply when that time comes.  Next week we will begin pre-writing work in student handwriting books.
Math
  • Students had their first assessment in math.  TK has math assessments every ten lessons. The first few are to gather information of a child’s knowledge so that we may tailor lessons to meet their needs.  
  • This week we learned to identify and create an AB color pattern using linking cubes and coloring.
  • TK also began learning positional words and phrases.  We played many fun games using wood pieces and teddy bears to learn words like up, down, under, behind etc.
Arts and Sciences
  • The students enjoyed dissecting tomatoes in our science lab.  Since we planted tomato seeds last week it was fitting to explore tomatoes this week.  TK students learned all about the life cycle of the tomato plant and the different parts of the tomato.  This was messy fun! Students learned terms like mesocarp and funiculus. Each student played a role in their small group handling and identifying the parts of a tomato.  
  • The students have been learning to draw a whole person.  Through song they learned to draw ten parts of the body. They begun this task last week by building Mat Man to the song.  This week they drew him! What an amazing and beautiful difference we have seen in their abilities to draw a whole person!
