This Week in Kindergarten
In reading we have talked about retelling a story and in writing students are learning strategies to sound out words. Students can stretch out words and even use sound boxes at home to help them hear and record sounds.
In math, students have explored counting and recording number 11-20. This is a very difficult skill for some students. Please go over this at home. Students have learned how to count and scoot, count and touch, count and cross out, and how to use a ten frame.
Assessments Coming Up

*counting to 100 by 10's
*touching and counting objects 1:1 to 20

Please go over these skills at home so that your child is ready for their assessment.
