Early Literacy Idea
Sing the alphabet song.  Be creative—sing it as a rap, skip every other letter, sing it quietly, loudly, or backwards.

What a wonderful group of students we have in our classes!  We are getting into the routine of school and adjusting to a schedule.  Thank you for your encouragement and support from home.  It makes such a difference in your child’s success at school!
It has been exciting to see the growth of each child already!  We will spend two days on each letter of the alphabet.  The first day we focus on the letter, its sound and how to write it correctly.  We are making an alphabet book that will come home at the completion of our letter study.  The second day we learn a poem to put in our “Poetry Binders” and them draw an object beginning with that letter/sound in our “I Can Draw It” books. 
We have also been working on the numerals 1-5 and learning the sight words: me, see, I.  Social skills and the importance of always doing our best is also emphasized.
Our first book order will come home on Monday, Sept. 10 in the homework folders.  If you are interested in ordering books, please send the money and the completed order forms back to school on Monday, Sept. 17th.  Please send one check made out to Scholastic Books   They do not accept cash.
Kindergarten is such an exciting year for learning!  I will send the Kindergarten Assessment results and the DIBELS (an assessment of early literacy skills) with your child on Monday, Sept. 17th.  Our reading aides will assess the students on DIBELS next week. 
It has been a pleasure to get to know you and your child!!  Please feel free to call, e-mail, or write me a note with any questions or concerns.  Have a great week!!
