Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences
If you have difficulties, please email me at email@example.com. This was very successful last year so I don't think you should have any problems.
Learning this week!
We are also talking about story elements: characters, setting, beginning, middle and end to a story. We are going to spend a lot of time retelling stories as well. This is a difficult skill for a lot of kindergarteners because they need to keep the correct sequence while they retell without forgetting where they are in the story! You can definitely practice this at home after reading a story with your child!
Phonics- We are concentrating on the letters Mm, Nn, Ww and Hh this week. The students will recognize the upper and lowercase letter, their sounds and how to write them. Here are the letters we have already learned: Pp, Bb, Dd, Tt, Cc, Kk, Gg, Ff, Vv, Ss, Zz, and Jj. You can practice ALL the letters using the ABC chart found in your child's D.O.G. Please do not remove the chart so it lasts all year!
Sightwords- We are learning to read the sight words to & am this week. We have already talked about the sight words the, we, a, see, I, can & like.
Writing- I am encouraging the students to write down the sounds they hear while they are trying to write a sentence. We have started this by copying most of the words in a simple sentence and trying to write just one word. Ex... I can ____________________. If the word is not spelled correctly that is okay! I will write it correctly underneath so the student can see how it should be spelled.
This week the students are writing about
Math- We have started Topic 2 which covers the meaning of the math vocabulary fewer than, more than, as many as, and the same. You can login in to Pearsonrealize by using the Math login I sent home. I have assigned the digital tests for Topic 2 for practice if you choose.
