Literacy

This month...

In Reading...we are practicing all the ways we have learned to be avid readers! Encourage scholars to practice their reading each day for 15-20 minutes.


In Phonics... we are using vowels and their sounds to help us read new words!


New Snap Word(s): he, boy, cat


Snap Words to review: a, me, the, I, like, my, at, look, see, here, is, this, an, house, mom, park


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 creating how to books! Encourage scholars to tell you how they do their daily activities like making their bed or brushing their teeth!

Math

Module 4 marks the next exciting step in math for our kindergartners—addition and subtraction!

We will be composing and decomposing numbers up to 10.

Be sure to practice a little each day!

To celebrate Kindergarten will learn about women that have made and changed history!


We learned so much in February about Black History. Our wax museum was a huge success!
