Kindergarten Newsletter - January 2019
Kindergarten students will start reading and learning about non-fiction books. They will learn how to read to gather information. They will learn how to become experts on different topics. Kindergarten students will start by becoming experts on topics by reading books, asking questions and talking to their classmates and teachers.
When you are reading at home with your child, spend time asking questions and talking about what he or she has learned in the book. Ask questions such as, “What was this book about?” or “What did this book teach you?” or “What can I teach someone else about this book?”
Kindergarten students will continue to work on persuasive writing. They will learn to state their opinion and give reasons why they feel a certain way. You can practice at home by having them write about their favorite books, foods, games and places.
Students will also be challenged to write in different forms, for example, writing a letter or song.
Also, Kindergarten students will be getting ready to write informational (non-fiction) writing pieces in April! They can start brainstorming ideas of topics they know a lot about and things they know how-to do well!

how many balloons does Kate have left?

What makes a community?
