We Are Sailing Through Kindergarten!

September 16th, 2016

This week...

  • We began our ELA and math curriculum. We are ready for an exciting year of learning! Please see the section below titled "Things We've Learned" to find out what letters and words we have worked on this week. Our letters, words, and math skills will be listed below every week. Please reference them as needed and continue to practice at home each week!
  • We set up our communication folders. Your child's folder has two labels: LEFT at home and RIGHT back to school. The papers on the left side should be emptied out and left at home each night. The papers on the right side need to be completed or filled out, and then brought back to school (homework, permission slips, etc.). Thank you!
