Happy Spring Kindergarten Families!

 

We are now entering our last trimester of school and are very excited for what's to come.  We will be working with our Kindergartners with Opinion Writing during Writers Workshop.  We'll also be helping children reach their Reading Goal.  By the end of Kindergarten students should be at level C/D.  In math, children should be able to count to 100 by 1's and 10's, add and subtract within 10 and recognize and describe 2d and 3d objects.

Welcome Kindergarteners

Dear Parents, 

 

Welcome!!! On August 17th, your child will experience one of the most important milestones in his/her life... the first day of Kindergarten!  Your child will have a full year of exciting learning experiences.  It is a new world for the kindergartner as he or she begins on the wonderful road of learning.

 

We place a high priority on parent involvement, so join us in helping make "your" school a true community!  It will be a most rewarding adventure for you and your child!

 

By the end of Kindergarten your child will:

* Identify all upper and lower case letters of the alphabet within one minute

* Master all consonant and short vowel sounds

* Recognize 67 High Frequency Words

* Read and write independently

* Read, write and count up to 30 (although, most children leaving kindergarten will write and count to 100)

* Simple addition and subtraction

 

As you can see, we have many skills to master.  To prepare your child for the busy year ahead, please work on the following:

* Write his or her name

* Identify and write numbers to 10

* Name and describe shapes (circle, square, triangle, rectangle)

* Recognize primary colors

* Practice the letters and sounds of the alphabet

 

We are looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year with you and your child!
