Learning News

Language Arts - The children have begun reading groups. They are using readers that incorporate their sight words. It is important they recognize these words quickly. 

Sight words - These words should be practiced for homework daily. . . we, the, see, I, can, like. 

Sight Words
The importance of sight words and high frequency words - these words are the most commonly occurring words while reading. Learning sight words and recognizing them quickly assists the students in understanding what they read. They won't need to slow down to figure them out.

The letters  - 
We  work on letter and sound recognition daily. 
Quick recognition of  letters will assist with word recognition.

Letters taught to date - a, b, t,f, m, n. i, u, c, o, a, g. 

The short vowel sound is what they have learned.

The sound for g and c taught is the hard sound for these letters. 


Concepts to be reviewed - sight words, letters taught, numbers through 5. 

Writing - As the children are taught to write their letters and names, they are taught that the letter stroke should always begin at the top and "pull down". This action could be reinforced at home as they practice what they have learned in school.

Written response - This is begun with an illustration to a prompt related to a story that was read. They will begin to add writing to their responses. They will use sight words and sound spellings to tell about what they drew. 

Math - We have begun with the basics - recognition of numbers 0-5, the amounts that correspond to the number and how to write he numbers using their lined pages. 

Counting to 100 is the goal for kindergarten students. We will work on this skill through the year. The students will use a number chart to assist them as they practice. Recognizing patterns as they count through the decades will also assist them with this skill.
