KINDERFUN 4/3/17 - 4/7/17

Weekly Newsletter

Snapshot of the Week:
     Our Kinders have made such growth throughout quarter 3! Our learning targets in literacy will focus on reading CVC words, identifying sight words, and phonetic spelling within writing. Although all sight words have been introduced, we will still be hard at work using them! Please continue to help your child practice the correct spelling of these words at home; you'll also notice their sight word progression listed on this quarter's report card. We are so happy seeing the wonderful progress our Kinders are making! We've been working hard at counting, adding within 10, and subtracting within 5! We will also continue our investigation of dinosaurs! 
     I look forward to meeting with you in the next few weeks to discuss your child's progress. If you have not received an email from Sign Up Genius, please let me know so we can find a time that works for you.
