Those frigid temperatures seem to be leaving us for a bit, which is a good thing! Though when the temps go down, we turn up the learning in Kindergarten! This week we are beginning to take many of our skills we learned from the fall and put them into practice. I am already pleased by the results!
As we begin more formal reading instruction, remember, not every child walks or talks at the same time. This is a developmental process. For some, it comes quickly because of their memory and for others, it can take more direct instruction of concepts. The best help you can be is be a ROLE MODEL reader to your child and reward their successes as they begin their reading journeys.
Here’s what we are learning this week:
- Sounding out (tapping out) CVC words
- The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
- Writing in our Journals
- Teen numbers, teen partners
- describing shapes
- Changes in Water
- Learner skills
- Thinking with your eyes/empathy
