We welcome back all of the SuperKids we this school year – from Cass to Hot Rod. Kindergarten children will be learning the beginning and middle sound of /u/ and continue to practice beginning and middle sound of the letters /c/ /d/ /f/ /g/ /l/ /t/. Kindergarten will also continue to practice to sound out and write out words that have the short vowel sounds of /a/ /e/ /i/ /o/ and /u/. Practice sounding out simple words that include these letter sounds. Try sounding out words such as “us”, “up”, “under”, “cut”, “pup”, and “hut”. Kindergarten children are doing a great job of encoding and decoding sounds to letters.
Parents, you have access to this wonderful program and should have received an email from SuperKids that will help you to get started. This is a great early childhood reading program and we are excited about having it as part of our Kindergarten Curriculum. Remember to review the letter sounds at home that the children are learning in class.
In Go Math we are working on Subtraction! The children are learning to write and use subtraction sentences up to 10. This is a great introduction to understanding what subtraction means by using pictures to support learning.
Kindergarten on the Road!
Beauty and the Beast – The children experienced a live off Broadway show in New York City!
Spring Walk-A-Thon – Our Spring Walk-a-thon was a huge success!
Green Meadow Farms – The children will get a chance to explore animals in their habitat!
Our Starfall.com program is also another wonderful resource to enhance our learning skills in Math and Reading. It is important to reinforce all the classroom topics at home with your child. Please make sure children are doing their homework, this a great way to review all of our classroom topics.
We are learning about Butterflies and Plants! Children are learning about metamorphosis and how caterpillars change into beautiful butterflies. We are also learning about different plants and how they grow from seeds.
May is the month of our Blessed Mother, Mary!
Children are learning the Hail Mary and how to pray the Rosary. We also visited her beautiful statue.
Hard to believe our Kindergarten school year is almost over. Look out for information about Kindergarten graduation which will take place in June.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with me!
Remember to always check your child’s folder and return it each day.
