Please ask your child to tell you his/her address, phone number and birthday!

         THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for the nice gifts, cards and remembrances!  I appreciate each of you and our thoughtfulness!
         Happy New Year!  I hope that each of you had an enjoyable, relaxing Christmas break!  January will be a great learning time for us in kindergarten!  Your children are progressing nicely.  Thank you for your support at home.  Please send back the December reading calendar for your child’s pizza certificate.  Remember our goal for kindergarten is 15 minutes a night, 5 nights a week.
         We will continue to review the letter sounds, segmenting, and blending words as well as reading and forming “nonsense words”. Reading nonsense words is a good indicator to see if students are able to decode words they are not familiar with.  For example, “ig”, “bab”, “tef”, etc.  We will practice addition with numerals up to 5, and forming numbers and letters correctly.
         Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  Have a wonderful week and thank you for sharing your children with me!
