Week of April 25-29, 2016

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! 
Our class participated in the “A Child’s View” writing for the Republican Herald newspaper.  The entries and a class photo are to be published in a supplement on Thursday, April 28th.  Students answered the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up and why?”  Be sure to check it out!!
Thank you to ALL who supported our class and school with the PTO Spring Fling Chinese Auction this past weekend.  It was a HUGE success!  OUR CLASS WON AN ICE CREAM PARTY!!!  Congratulations to Addie Urban and family for winning our class’ basket/bin “A Night with the Family”
In May 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 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!
