Kindergarten Team:

Miss Kelly, Ms. DiMatteo, Mrs. Rich (Paraprofessional), and Mrs. Tanner

It looks like March will be snowy! We have been continuing our learning about non-fiction books in our Reader’s Workshop time. We have been comparing information heard in non-fiction texts with fiction stories that we have read. We love to talk about our reading! Thank you for all of your hard work at home practicing your child’s reading! Keep it up!

In Writer’s Workshop we have just completed our How To books! These will be hanging up when you come in for conferences. The children picked a topic and wrote a materials list and steps to demonstrate how to complete the activity. The look great! Our next big project is our All About books. The children will choose an animal and learn some information about that animal. They will then write a book sharing the information they have learned.

In Math we have been working hard on writing number sentences with + and =, as well as solving story problems with numbers up to 5. The kids have gotten really good at figuring these problems out! You can give your child some story problems at home and encourage them to solve them.

Don’t forget that we will have parent-teacher conferences March 21st, 22nd, and 23rd. If you have not reserved your conference time with your child’s teacher please do this as soon as possible! We look forward to meeting with you!

Here are some things to do with your child:

  • Read nightly
  • Practice reading the 25 and 50 sight words lists
  • Practice counting to 100
  • Write numbers 1 to 20
  • Practice tying shoes
  • Go onto Raz Kids
  • Go onto Sumdog


* Check Take Home Folders nightly and return to them to school.

*Read nightly and fill in reading log.

*Sign and return reading log and homework calendar at the end of the month.

*Make sure all lunch money is labeled in an envelope.

*Please write a note for any changes in dismissal.

*Please provide 1 healthy snack a day for your child.

*Provide a complete change of clothes to be kept at school if you did not already do so.

Just a reminder to all families, please continue to support your child’s learning by reading nightly and completing the homework calendar tasks. Also, don’t forget to utilize Raz-kids and Sumdog as a tool to help your child practice grade level skills.
