The kindergartners are looking forward to exploring the following topics...the birthday of Dr. Seuss, the solar system, St. Patrick, the arrival of Spring, Holy Week, Easter, plants...and more...

Each day we enjoy a story from our language arts program.  The stories help us to practice many concepts and strategies such as retelling stories, identifying beginning, middle and ending events in a story, answering comprehension questions about the story as well as allowing us to decode words, identify our "cheer" words in the stories and explore punctuation, capitalization and spacing of words in text/writing. 

The following is a list of the letters and keywords that we have covered in our phonics lessons so far this year.  Please review these with your child as often as possible.  
Aa/apple, Bb/bat, Cc/camel, Dd/dolphin, Ee/egg, Ff/fire, Gg/guitar, Hh/hippo, Ii/insect, Jj/jump, Kk/koala, Ll/lemon, Mm/map, Nn/nest, Oo/octopus, Pp/piano, Qq/queen, Rr/rose, Ss/sun, Tt/turtle, Uu/umbrella, Vv/volcano, Ww/window, Xx/fox

We have been exploring simple addition and subtraction, ten frames, word problems, using graphs, and writing number sentences.

Homework is sent home daily in your child's folder.  Please help your child look over his/her papers each night and return the homework the following day.
