Kindergarten News

For Reading we will read the story, Abuela by author Arthur Dorros.  This will be the last of our “adventure” stories for Unit 4.  It will be a fiction story about a city adventure and the boys and girls will learn a few Spanish words.  We will focus on the comprehension skill, setting.  We will review the sound of short /e/.  Check out the new Family Times newsletter in your child’s folder.

For Math we will continue with Topic 9; Composing and Decomposing Numbers to 10.  Students will learn different ways to make 4 through 10 and write number sentences to show these different ways.   Review practice pages as they come home in the folder.

The March AR/Book Buddy recording sheets are due on Wednesday, April 1st.  (The goal for the month is 16 books.)
