Leveled Readers!

Kindergarten will begin sending home readers next Friday! This reader should be on your child's independent level, and we would love for you to read this book with them four nights a week. These readers will come home weekly, with occasional exceptions, such as long holidays. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child's teacher. Thank you in advance for supporting your child's reading growth at home. :)

Testing

WISD will be administering the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test (NNAT), which identifies strengths of students using nonverbal tasks, to students in kindergarten in the month of November.

These assessments measure the overall cognitive processes and strategies that enable students to learn new tasks and solve problems.

These tests provide information for the Gifted and Talented identification process that will occur this school year.

The assessment will be give on an electronic device during the school day. Parents and teachers will receive a copy of the results once completed. If the data supports the need for further screening for the GT program, parents will be notified.

If you have questions regarding this assessment, please contact Mrs. Power.

Book It!

If you are interested in participating in this program, your child's teacher will be able to send you the file to print at home :)

Word Wall

The table below is of our kindergarten word wall, and it will be updated weekly with our new word(s). Please practice these words with your child at home so that they will become memorized and recalled quickly. :)
