After reading, The Hunt, students were asked various comprehension questions and completed a few activities to check for understanding of the story. Students have been doing a great job of decoding words. In order for us to read these words more fluently, students need to continue to identify the letter sounds at a faster rate. Keep practicing at home if your kindergarteners' decoding sounds choppy or labored. You can also practice some phonemic awareness skills at home by saying a word and asking your kindergartener to chop the sounds. For example, say bent then ask the kindergartener to say bent /b/ - /e/ - /n/ - /t/. You can also say the sounds and ask the kindergartener to tell you the word.
We also got our new Superkids Club book this week! We learned that Oswald is the next Supernoodle, and he is planning a picnic filled with foods that begin with the letter p. We are excited to learn more about Oswald's picnic adventure next week.
Please ask your kindergartener to read the story and words in their Superkids book with you whenever they bring it home!
