KINDERFUN 1/9/17 - 1/13/17

Weekly Newsletter

Snapshot of the week:
     This week we'll continue practicing tapping out words -- the kinders are picking it up very quickly and are making great progress in reading words. Please check your fundations packet to assist your child with sound tapping at home! We'll again play a new game called Guess My Word, where the children will have to use their tapping skills to identify words! We'll also do a very brief review of capital letters (A-H) and their purpose. In math we will continue focusing on the vocabulary of greater than, less than and equal to. Our focus story will be The Mitten by Jan Brett which will help us learn about sequencing in stories! On Friday, we'll have an assembly to learn all about Martin Luther King, Jr.
