  Kindergarten March News Topics of the Month In Math this month, we will begin addition and subtraction. The students will understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from. At home, create real life situa- tions in which students would need to add and subtract. For example, when setting the table, you could say, “We need five plates. I have already set two out. How many more do I need?” Our new IB unit is Sharing the Planet. The central idea is that people have a responsibility to share and conserve re-sources in order to help all living things thrive. We will think, question, and observe environmental issues and take ac-tion to solve these problems. Our students will begin to research animals, learning about animal parents and their off-spring as well as comparing and contrasting different animal species. In Writing, we will be working on persuasive/opinion writing. Writers will learn to name their opinion, use de-tails to show why they have that opinion, and make an ending for their piece. We will be identifying prob-lems in our classroom, our school, and our community and write to get the word out about these issues. Stu-dents will chose how to convey their message (make posters, signs, lists, songs, brochures etc.) Important Dates March 2nd  –   Read Across America Day March 3rd  –   Spirit Day March 7th  –   Spring Pictures March 10th  –    Teacher Work Day/Spring Conferences  March 13th  –   No school (for kids) March 19th  –   Hands on Heards Ferry March 20-24th  –   Teacher Appreciation March 25th  –   Parent Party March 31st  –   STEM Day   New Standards for the Month Math MGSEK.CC.1 Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
