Early Literacy Idea
Sing the alphabet song.  Be creativesing it as a rap, skip every other letter, start the song beginning with your child’s name, sing it backwards, quietly or loudly.


Save your Box Tops!
Please remember to send in box tops with your child.  Each box top is worth 10 cents for our school, so tell your relatives and friends to help with the collecting too!  THANKS!


News
         Thank you for your support and encouragement at home with your child!  We are having a great time learning and I am enjoying each one of your children.  Each one of them has something special to contribute to our class.
        
        Thanks especially for helping your child with the alphabet chant chart and for reading at home. 
        
         We have been segmenting words into phonemes and blending them together to make words. For example: /f/ /i/ /s/ /h/.  We will begin to “chain” words (read, spell and write words of one-syllable short vowel) in which one sound is added, substituted, or omitted.  For example: at>bat>bad>bid.
        
         Your child will be bringing Chapter 1 Go Math assessment home soon to let you see how they are understanding the concepts being taught.  Please look it over and discuss it with him/her.

          Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!

         We have had a great first 2 weeks of school! What delightful kindergarten students!  I am enjoying each one and appreciate your support at home! 
         Please help reinforce that our names (with one or two exceptions) start with a capital and all the rest of the letters are lowercase.  Many of the students are used to writing all capitals. 
          Units one and two in our Language Arts program lay the foundation for students’ future reading and writing skills, part of which includes blending sounds to form words.  We are also practicing the initial sounds in each of the students’ names, as well as initial sounds in other words.
         In math we are focusing on numerals 0-10. We are working on representing objects with number names and written numerals and will solve problems by using different strategies.
         Our science, library, computer time, P.E., music and art have been so fun!  It is exciting to see the growth of each of the students!    
         Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!

         Wow, I can’t believe this is the last newsletter of the year!  Thank you for all you do to help with your child’s education!   
         Remember the last day of school is Wednesday, May 23rd.  All students will get to meet their first grade teacher for next year on this day.  In order for this to happen, we need all students to attend the morning session of kindergarten including those who normally attend the PM class.  We will meet from 8:50-10:50. All PM students need to be picked up in their kindergarten classroom at 10:50.  The buses will not be running for the PM students. The AM students will meet parents and buses as usual upstairs. 
         THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR SUPPORT THROUGHOUT THE YEAR!
