Learning and Growing Everyday

Readers Workshop

This week during Readers Workshop we will be talking about Thanksgiving. We will be shaking heavy cream to make butter, eating it on cornbread and making macaroni necklaces.

Please continue to practice the heart words at home. These words are the anchor words and help your child when reading and writing. Due to the short school week we will not add any new heart words.

the, I, we, can, like, see, my, to, with, me, he.


This week during Fundations we will be reviewing the letters learned. Please continue to practice the letters and their sounds t,b,f,m,n,i,u,c,o,a,g,d,s,e,r,p and j at home. A letter will be coming home Monday with the letters and heart words your child needs practice with.

Engage Math

During Math this week we will be practicing writing our numbers to 10. Next week when we return from Thanksgiving break we will start our new Module on shapes.

Home Connection

Here is a site for home practice. Just click on kindergarten on the left side and go to the module and topic we are working on.

What Else Are We Doing In Kindergarten?


Every Monday I send home a reading log for you to write down how many minutes you read to or with your child each day. Every student should be reading at least 10 minutes a day and reviewing heart words. Please fill log out and return following Monday. This is a grade on your child's report card for their homework.
