Making a Difference for Webb City Kindergarten Students

December 2015 Newsletter

Welcome!

Thank you for checking out our ALL NEW kindergarten newsletter. It is my hope to create a monthly newsletter with the help of our core teams. Our goal is to keep all of us connected as a kindergarten team. The newsletter will be sent to all kindergarten teachers electronically and posted on our Kindergarten ELA site.

Kindergarten Rocks!

Report Card

ELA Core team met on Dec. 11, 2015. Procedures to complete the report card for quarters 2-4 of this school year were discussed. Check out the procedures at the following link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1s5hC66S-BWWkZy4ux2xY-SCFWelGwsii_JKSsHbFL0c/edit?ts=566aed59


A quarter 2 report card template was also added to the website. This may be helpful if you have a new student. We plan to create a template for each quarter.

ELA core team created new electronic versions of Sight Word books for week 19-23. You can find each book and directions to print them by going using the following link: https://sites.google.com/a/wcr7.org/ela/reading/kindergarten
