WE went on a field trip!!

WOW!  What fun we have had this week!  We have learned about community helpers, and talked about what we wanted to be when we grow up.  We learned about question marks and exclamation marks.  We finished our short review of the alphabet, and now we will start studying a letter each week.  We learned about all the sounds that the letters make by meeting animals (ask me if I know what Allie Alligator and Bubba Bear say).  We put our names in ABC order in the hall.  We learned how to spell and read words that rhymne with cat(ask me to tell you a word that rhymnes with cat).  We went on a field trip to the Highland Volunteer Fire Department.  On the field trip we learned about the fire trucks, the firefighters' uniforms, and what to do in case of a fire.  We also met a dog that works with search and rescue.   The best thing of all was getting in the fire truck and wearing the fire hat. The funniest thing was the BIG blow up fireman.

September 13-17

HI!! Hope you all are having a great weekend.  This week we will learn two new words   THE  and LITTLE.  Write these words and hang them around your house for your child to see and read daily.  I will be sending home a practice reader this week, have your child read this book to you and return it the next day.  The more your child reads it the better reader your child will become.  We will continue to work with rhyming words this week and nursery rhymes.  Share your favorite rhyme or nursery rhyme with your child.  We will also work with sequencing of stories and activities.  Use the words first, second, third, fourth, etc at home. Remember to have your child write their name on all homework, remind them to use an uppercase letter for the first letter of their name only.   Don't forget that the fundraiser is due on Sept. 15.  I'm looking forward to having a great week working with your child!!

READING in Kindergarten!!

WOW!!  We are really moving fast.  We can read our color words and the sight words "I" and "am".  For the next two weeks we are reviewing letters and letter sounds.  We started writing in our journals.  At the end of kindergarten we will be able to look back at our journals to see how we wrote at the first of the school year and at the end of the school year.  Our school fundraiser started today and will end on Sept. 15.  The class that sells the most will get a pizza party.  Progress reports will go home on Sept. 7.   WE ARE OFF TO A GREAT START!!
