    • Writing

      Girl Holding a Big Yellow PencilWe will begin the year by working on making the correct letter formation. As the students are learning how to write letters we transition into practicing words and sentences. We focus on beginning sentences with a capital letter, giving words space, and using punctuation.  Your child will then begin creating their own sentences in their journals.  Although the spelling may not be conventional, it is important to praise your child for his or her spelling approximations.  I will expect sight words to be spelled correctly because they are displayed in the classroom, but phonetically spelled words are acceptable and encouraged in kindergarten.
    • Math

      In Kindergarten, we are building foundational skillsMath Notebook.  We spend a lot of time on number sense.  Students work on counting to 100 or more, identifying numbers, telling which number is more or less, and identifying the number that is more/less than a given number.  Students also focus on addition within 5, as well as non-standard unit measurement, and number representation.

      If you'd like to help your child with these skills, check out the links below for some activities and games.

    • Reading

      Image result for reading clipartLearning to read is a huge step in Kindergarten.  In order to meet students' needs, we will be approaching reading in several ways.  First, we begin the year by learning the letters and sounds. Then we transition into basic CVC and CVCe words.   I will also be supplementing with additional children's literature and phonics activities.
      We also practice phonics skills (which helps us decode words and spell phonetically) by using a program called "The Phonics Dance."  This program attaches visual cues and movements to letters and sounds as well as "hunks and chunks" to help students recall them.
      Daily 5 gives us a framework for practicing all of the things we've been learning.  It allows time to work on reading, writing, and working with words.  
      Finally, Guided Reading brings all of the pieces together in a small group setting.  As students work on applying their phonics skills and reading strategies, where I am there to support them.
    • Sight Words

      Alphabet CenterSight words are words that your child should know "by sight."  They should be able read these words in 3 seconds or less and should not need to sound them out.  Learning sight words makes reading much easier and faster for students.  When they don't have to stop and decode these high-frequency words, they have energy for decoding more challenging words and reading for meaning.

    • Homework

      School BoyStudents will receive a homework packet each month.  Students are to complete the homework at their own pace and it is due on the last Friday of the month.
      Every month, there is also a family project that is assigned to the students to complete with their families. These are due on the date stated with take home project. 
      In addition to the assigned homework, students are highly encouraged to read daily.  Just 10 minutes each day could make a great difference in your child's reading ability!
