Welcome to Mrs. Rinaldi's Classroom
Welcome back to school! We are looking forward to a wonderful year!
Religion-We work on learning the Hail Mary and Our Father throughout the year. We will be going to 8:30 Mass every Thursday except if we have an all school mass. We read Bible stories and incorporate these into our day.
Language Arts-We will be working on learning the 150 sight words. We also use the Fundations Phonics program. As the year goes on, we will bring in guided reading books at school and leveled readers to be done at home. We will also start the basics of writing through journaling. These journals will be kept at school and sent home at the end of the year. We will focus on writing sentences with punctuation as well as capital letters, spacing and drawing pictures.
Math- We use the Math in Focus program. This program is designed to give a strong foundation in number sense. We will incorporate many of these concepts into our centers throughout the week.
Themes-Each week we have a different theme that we will incorporate into our day. We will be doing many projects that go along with our themes as well as bringing science concepts that coordinate with our themes. We also have a food curriculum that we coordinate with the themes.
Centers-We do centers 2-3 times a week in the afternoons in addition to guided reading centers in the morning. Our centers focus on reviewing concepts from the week, science, technology, writing and other activities.
