Happy New Year!

Welcome back to school!  We are getting back into the swing of Kindergarten, after taking a break for some much-needed rest and vacation time.

This week we learned counting by 5's.  This can be a tricky task, so we used the 5 fingers on our hands to keep counting on each 5.  Then we wrote down the 5th number on the hands of our poster, and counted by 5's from 5 to 100.  Now we know the "slow" way to count to 100: by 1's; the "fast" way to count to 100: by 10's; and the "medium" way to count to 100: by 5's.  Be sure to ask your child to count to 100 each of these ways. (It's a great time occupier when you are sitting in your car waiting at stop lights.)
