    Kings and Queens

    Community Reads

    During the month of January, Kindergarten students are reading about kings, queens and royal families. Students compare and contrast experiences between texts and illustrations to support their understanding of the responsibilities, lifestyle, and customs associated with royalty throughout history. Kindergarten students will engage in reading poems and classic stories such as King Midas and the Golden Touch, The Princess and the Pea, Cinderella, Old King Cole, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

     

    Kindergarten students are learning how to spell one-syllable, short-vowel words. Skills lessons promote students’ ability to read words with blends such as “stamp” or “vest.” Students continue their engagement in chaining activities, repeated readings, and tricky words to support their growth and development into independent readers. Lessons consist of students using strategies such as “Turn and Talk” to discuss comprehension questions.

    • Before School - Your child is learning about kings and queens in class. Ask your child to describe what a king and queen are and what they do.

     

    • After School - This month, your child is studying the responsibilities, lifestyles, and customs associated with royalty throughout history. Ask your child to compare royal responsibilities with tasks or duties they may experience at home or in their classroom.

     

    • Dinnertime - Students are discovering that kings or queens rule a particular area of land and the people who live there. Discuss with your child how the role of a king or queen compares to the role of a school principal?

     

    • Bedtime - A kingdom is an area ruled or governed by a king or queen. Ask your child to compare the relationship of how a king or queen rules a kingdom to how a parent or guardian rules a household?
