We had 6 caterpillars in our classroom that turned into their chrysalis.  We have let two butterflies go so far!

Word Wall Words

Each week we will add to our word wall words.  Please stay on top of these words by having your child continuously practice identifying the words.  This will be in your child’s best interest because at the end of the year your child is expected to quickly identify 44 word wall words.  The words start to compile quickly.  Each week I will add to the list of word wall words in the news letter.  The bold word is the new word for the next week.  *A complete list of kindergarten word wall words was handed out the night of orientation.  If you would like another list, please let me know.
