Week of May 11-15, 2015

Kindergarten News
For Math we will be finishing up Topic 12 Measurement.  Students will be comparing length, height, weight, and capacities.  Please review daily work mats!
We will read our last Reading story in Unit 5. It is This is the Way We Go to School. It is a fiction story about children around the world.  The comprehension skill we will focus on with this story is drawing conclusions and we will work with the letter sounds /y/ and /kw/ for the letters Yy and Qq.  Watch for your new Family Times newsletter!  **Girls will finally get to be Queens for a day on Thursday, 5/14.
Monday, 5/11, the Reading teachers will begin the end-of-the-year testing with each Kindergarten child.  Children will need to write a dictated sentence or two, recognize, write, and give the sound of every letter of the alphabet, be able to provide a word that begins with every letter sound, and be able to write as many words correctly in 10 min.  Please review at home!!
**All library books need to be returned ASAP.  The library is now closed for borrowing new books. 
         All boys and girls have completed their DIBELS testing for this school year and Mrs. Potts is VERY PROUD of the improved scores!  (Scores will be sent home with the 4th marking period report cards.) Thank you to all the parents for your support and practice at home!
