Happy New Year 2018!
We hope everyone had a wonderful and restful holiday break! Now that we are back, we are ready to continue all of our hard work, as we get ready for first grade. The students will be starting a new unit in Fundations as well as in reading and writing. In math, we will continue our chapter on geometric shapes and their attributes. Please read with your child each day to help them improve their reading skills and log on to RazKids.com for extra practice. We are very proud of our Kindergarteners! Keep up the great work!
Please remember that we have an open-door policy in our classrooms, and we invite you, the parents/guardians, to be an important member of our kindergarten adventure. If at any time you have any questions please come and speak with us, leave a note or message with the school secretary and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
This month we will be actively working on:
Fundations is the phonics program used to teach children how to read (decode) and write and spell (encode). Fundations instruction emphasizes phonemic awareness, phonics-word study, high frequency word study, fluency, vocabulary, handwriting, and spelling.
UNIT 2: Your child will learn the letter formation and sounds for each of the 26 letters in the alphabet. Also, the students will learn proper writing posture, as well as, the correct mechanics in how to hold writing instruments. We will be working on upper case letters as well as tapping out individual sounds in a word.
