WHAT WE ARE LEARNING!

It's hard to believe we are already in the third week of school! Your students have been working hard and I love getting to know each of them and their sweet personalities!


Over the next couple of weeks we should be in full routine and ready to start guided reading groups. This week, your child's personal sight word list will start to come home. Please read the orange letter to help guide you through how we will work on sight words.


Math homework will start coming home this week. This should be a review kindergarten concepts. Packets will come home every Monday and are due Friday.


If you have any questions, please let me know!
