    A Peek at Our Week

    This week we will be learning about bats.  We will learn how they live and what type of things they eat.

    In writing we are continuing to learn how to develop sentences.  This week, we will be focusing on writing from left to right.  In math we will be learning how to put two numbers, or two groups of objects together, to make a group of 3, 4, or 5.    In reading we will learn how to make comparisons between characters or pieces of information in a text.  For phonics, we will continue learning how to identify the beginning sound of a word.

    I am adding more dates and times to our Parent Teacher Conference Sign Up Genius page.  If you have not yet signed up for a conference, please do so soon.  All conferences will be conducted through TEAMS.  A link will be sent to your email for the conference.  You simply click on the link during your conference time and it will log you right in.  This link to sign up is https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B094BA5A72BA5FA7-parent2.

    Have a great week!

    Please remember to have your child sign into TEAMs every Wednesday for the live/recorded meeting at 9am and to take part in our Wednesday conversation.

     

    We want your student to be successful!  Please allow your student to do their work as independently as possible.  Students should be writing their own names, drawing and coloring their own pictures, and cutting and gluing their own activities.  These activities help strengthen your child’s fine motor skills and are an important part of development in Kindergarten.  Thank you!
