In the month of August and September the students are getting to know their school campus and their classroom.
In Math we are counting to 20 and learning our 2D/3D shapes. We are also working on writing our numbers to 5. By the end of the year your child needs to be counting to 100 and should recognize numbers 0-20.
In Reading we are working on recognizing our letters and sounds. We are working on rhyming words and segmenting words.
In writing we are learning to write our name and where to start writing our letters. Please remind your child we always start at the top and go to the bottom when writing.
In Science we will be discussing the weather, fall, and apples. We will also be learning about our kindergarten garden.
Reminder: Take your child to the library to get a library card of their own. Please read to your child each night.
In the classroom we will be studying letters/sounds.
In Language Arts/Reading we are studying what a character is and how we tell how they are feeling. Please ask your child what the author and illustrator do? Also, ask them where is the front, back, spine, and title of the book? Ask them where do we start reading: from the front of the book and we read from the left to the right. When reading a story to them ask them to point to where on the page you would start reading? Have your child point to that place. Point to the words as you read them to your child. Have them mimic you and point to the words as you read.
Important Dates in September:
Parent Volunteers to keep our garden area clean of debris and cobwebs.
Please check out donorschoose.org for donating money to the school for projects for all the classrooms.
For those parents wanting to help their child begin to read at home or want more practice for their child we are sending a passcode home for the Reading eggs website. You may login and work on phonics activities that will help your child learn to read.
Scholastic Book Orders:
Scholastic Book Orders will be due the 20th of every month. You may purchase the books online. We will be sending a letter home during parent conferences with a code to order online. Please let us know when you place an online order so that we may enter approval.
