Welcome to Kindergarten!

This week in reading, we reviewed the letter sounds Aa, Bb, Cc, Ff, Mm, Nn, Pp, Ss & Tt! Kinders should be able to recognize these letters and read/write the sound symbols for these letters in words. If they are having trouble, use the letter/picture flashcards that were sent home to practice. We also reviewed our sight words - if you are missing any, please check out the sight word page of the website! Kindergartners have also started writing narrative and informative pieces! A narrative tells first, next and last and an informative gives information about a subject. Kinders should be starting to write several sentences independently!

This week in math, Kindergartners worked in Go Math Chapter 8, Numbers to 20 and Beyond! Kindergartners are practicing counting to 101 by ones, and to 110 by tens! They are also choosing a number on a grid and counting up from that number instead of starting at 1. These are all things you can do at home, in the car, or out and about! We are also working on recognizing & printing numbers to 75. You can use the flashcards we sent home to practice, and if your child needs extra grid paper for writing, just let us know!

This week we celebrated the birthday of Dr. Suess! The Cat in the Hat surprised us with a visit and handed gently used books out to all the children! We made green eggs (which MOST of us liked!) and wrote a how to narrative! We sorted, counted, graphed and compared sets of colored goldfish crackers! We also made ooblek and created our own Dr. Suess characters. Ask your child what their favorite Dr. Suess activity was!
