NECCS Kindergarten News
In Reading...we are learning about Non-Fiction text.
Non-Fiction stories are ones that talk about things that are true, they teach us things! Students should practice identifying the text features we have learned about as they are reading Non-Fiction text at home.
Encourage scholars to practice their reading each day for 15-20 minutes.
In Phonics.. we have just finished learning about our vowels and the sounds that they make. We focused on the Short vowel sounds. Students should continue to practice their vowels, the sounds, and try finding them in words!
Snap Words to review: to, do, we, be, got, look, see
Work with scholars on being able to read these words quickly!
Snap words are not meant to be sounded out...students need to know them on sight!
In writing...We are writing How-to books. We write How-to books to teach people how to do something that we are very good at! Students have written the first and second steps of their How-to book.
