What's up in Kindergarten!!
This week in Kindergarten...
In Math we are working on writing and recognizing teen numbers 11-19. They have also been introduced to addition and subtraction. They are doing really well at both addition and subtraction. We will continue to work on addition and subtraction as well as teen numbers for the remainder of the year.....2014 that is. :)
In literacy we have been focusing a lot on sight words. At this point in the year the students should be able to identify and spell we, the, you, am, is, it, can, me, my, like, look, I, a, are and go. On Friday, I sent home sight word flashcards for you to have at home and work with your child on. Just going through a few a night will make a huge difference in your child's reading and writing. We are also working very hard on CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words. Ex. cat, man, pat, pig, wig. We have been learning how to sound out each sound and then put them all together to read the word. p-a-t=pat.
