December 4 - December 8

Dear Families,

This week in class we have been learning the letters Qq and Jj, the sounds the letters make, and how to write both the capital and lowercase of each letter correctly. We are working on the sight words here and was.
All the sight word we have learned so far are:
can

the
like
a
see
I
go
have
to
is
play
are
for
you
this
do
and
what
little
said





In math we are working on numbers 11 -20. We are working on writing each number and counting objects to that number. We are also still working on how to make 10. (Example 3 and 7 make 10).

Part of kindergarten is learning the rules. Three rules we are still working hard on are keeping our hands and feet to ourselves, following directions the first time given, and learning to use our words to stop problems.

As homework:  Please read 20 minutes every night (each student should have a December reading log. Please mark the books you or your child are reading on this log. Your student will be getting a homework grade for their reading logs). Please also work on recognizing letters Cc, Gg, Oo, Aa, Dd, Ss, Ll, Ff, Ee, Tt, Ii, Hh, Uu, Bb, Rr Nn, Mm, Pp, Vv, Ww, and Kk producing the sounds for each.  Please review the sight words we have been working on and that we have learned. In math please work on counting and writing numbers 1- 20 and on ways of making 10s.

 Please continue to work on spelling and writing your students first names correctly (capital letter at the beginning and the rest of the letters lowercase).

A lot of the students are starting numbers and letters at the bottom of the page. Please help your student to start all numbers and letters at the top of the line when they are writing.


A few other Things:  Your student came home with a bag that had a reading book or flashcards in it. These books or flashcards need to be done as homework with your child, and as they pass them off you need to sign the paper and return them to school for their next set of letters or book.
