What's Kickin' in Kindergarten

PHONICS, SIGHT WORDS, VOCABULARY, AND READING STRATEGIES

This week in Phonics...

Students will work on building CVC (consonant-Vowel-Consonant) words with the short e sound. Examples: met, set, let, get. Students will also use prior knowledge of other CVC building skills and short vowels (short u)


Sight Words-Please make sure that you are completing the Fluency Folder every night and reviewing all 1st Quarter Sight Words as well as previous 2nd Quarter Sight Words.


Week 1: do, he, she

Week 2: be, play, said

Week 3: are, here, was

Week 4: on, did, get


Vocabulary Words for Unit 4 (starting Monday):

family - a group of people related to one another

thankful - glad or grateful


Reading Strategy: Students learn different strategies to help with reading:

Eagle Eye-look at the picture to help decode tricky words

Lips the Fish-get your mouth ready to sound out words

Stretchy Snake- Stretch the words out to make it easier to sound out

Chunky Monkey-Look for word chunks to make sounding words out easier


This week's strategy is Skippy Frog-

Students will skip a tricky word and come back to it. Using the words from the rest of the sentences will help them figure out the unknown word!

UNIT 4-EXPLORING FAMILIES AND TRADITIONS

In this new unit, Exploring Families and Traditions, students will learn and understand main ideas and key details in text.

We will also be focusing on the differences between non fiction and fiction text.


Through Narrative writing, students will write about an event in their lives. We are still working on finger spaces between each word and a capital letter at the beginning of each sentence. Don't forget the period!! :)
