Overview We are reviewing all the letter names and sounds the first three weeks of school, then we are spending one week learning one letter until all 26 letters are learned well! We are counting a lot, and writing the numbers 0-10.
We are learning about tallies, and ordering the numbers, and using good penmanship to write the numbers correctly.
Homework: Homework packets go home every Monday. The homework pages are due back to school on Friday.
Homework helps parents know what we learned in class. Homework is a review of what we already learned, or extra practice in simple skills.

Book Club/Reading Club: The least expensive way to bring books into the home is to visit the library.
The next best way to help your child learn to read and enjoy books at home is to buy inexpensive books through the Scholastic Book Club.
Once a month I send home a book order form. If you want to order books, please send in the form and a check or cash by the next to the last week of the month.
Our School Family Liaison, Maria, can help you with the form, or ask me for help, if needed.
Technology Every student uses an ipad, Chromebook, or desktop computer almost every day. Students receive individualized instruction in reading and English language development, as well, through using technology. Many of the programs the students use can be accessed from home on your internet-connected device.
1. Go to the school website and go to KAAS PORTAL. 2. Look for Mrs. WIlson's Room 7 Kindergarten class. Click on that, and you'll see your child's name.
They need to remember their password to access their programs. Each kindergartner has an "Easy access" password that is a Color, a Shape, and a Number. Be remembering these three elements, they can remember how to sign in to our reading and math programs. Look in their homework folders for your child's Easy Access passcode.
