Reading and Writing
We are continuing to practice names, sounds, letter formation and writing/reading words with the following lowercase letters:
a, c, d, g, i, m, o, t
Any extra practice with these at home is SO helpful!!
Your kids are super stars when it comes to the numbers 1-5. They can sort, see, manipulate, write and are beginning to add! We are also working on identifying and creating patterns. Most students have a good understanding with the ababab pattern but struggle with these patterns:
Find things at home that have patterns and ask if they can figure out what it is. Also ask them to make patterns with size, colors, shapes, animals, etc for you! We will begin numbers 6-20 after fall break!
In your child's Friday folder you will find a few important documents.
- Linder Farms field trip permission slip. Please sign both sheets and return next week!
- Idaho Reading Indicator (IRI) score sheet. These tells what overall score your child got and how many letter names and sounds they could say in one minute. It also tells what each score means. If you have any questions, please ask!
- Intervention Letter- Only students who are receiving extra interventions in math and reading will receive one of these. Contact me if you want more information about these.
Please contact Mallory Brooks, our room mom, if you are interested in helping with the kindergarten Harvest Party on Oct. 20 from 12:00-1:15. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org
