Weekly Focus

Reading:

We will be working on retelling a story using beginning, middle and end.


Writing:

In Kindergarten, writing is composed of two parts. The first part is learning how to form the letters correctly. The second part is helping the students learn how to put their stories and thoughts on paper. This includes pictures and writing. At this time your child will be learning how to put down one or two letters to stand for a word. We want them to start hearing the beginning and ending sounds of words. Before telling your child how to spell a word, see if they can figure out what letter sounds they are hearing. Don’t worry about them getting all the letters correct.


Math:

Our focus this week will be on reading and writing numbers to 10.

Specials Schedule: Week 3

Please refer to your Kindergarten Information Packet for what group your child is in so you know what special they have each day. Be sure to wear tennis shoes if you have P.E.
