Kindergarten Newsletter - January 2019
Kindergarten students will begin January with continuing to learn more reading “super powers” to help them read all of the books inside of their reading baggies.
By mid-January, the students will begin working on a unit called “Bigger Books, Bigger Muscles.” The focus in this unit is for students to tackle more challenging books by using all of the reading strategies that they learned in the super powers unit. They will be looking at the picture and saying the beginning sound of that word, cross-checking their reading, reading to the end of the word to gain more visual information and consider what looks right (Does it look right? Does it sound right? Does it make sense?).
Please make sure to read with your child every night!
Kindergarten students are working on persuasive writing. The students will give their opinions to the following and give reasons why: responding to books, which field trip was their favorite, etc.
