Dear Students and Families, 

I'm so excited to be teaching your children this year! We will be working very hard  learning our letters, numbers, blending sounds, reading words and sentences, writing words and sentences, completing math facts, and recognizing sight words and rhyming words.  

The students will be using the Wilson Fundation program to learn how to write, identify, and name the letter and sound it makes to  build words. For our ELA curriculum we use the McGraw Hill Wonders Program. The students will be read fiction and nonfiction stories where they will begin to identify the characters, setting, and sequence a story.  They will also learn to compare and contrast. Our math program is Envision.  Students will start off identifying numbers, writing them, and then counting objects to match numbers. Next we will get into addition and then subtraction.

In addition, we will be working together to create a positive and safe environment for all.  The students will have many social interaction opportunities with their peers during our Centers, ELA, and Math.  

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you in advance,
Mrs. Higgins
