Reading and Language Arts:
During the first few weeks we will be reading stories and identifying different story elements (author, illustrator, characters and setting).We are also learning how to sit and listen to a story so that we can ask and answer questions about the story. This is an important skill and it will help your child to recall important details and retell the story.
We will introduce the letter t. Students will learn how to write the letter and be able to name the letter and the sound it makes. Please review the information that was sent home about our Fundation’s Program.
We will be learning the words: a, I & red.
The students will be learning numbers to five and ten. They will also be exploring with patterns.
Please help your child learn the letters in his/ her name and practice writing his/her name at home. The first letter should be uppercase and the rest of the letters should be lowercase. Please help your child hold the pencil with the correct grip. Forming letters and numbers correctly requires a lot of practice and students often need individualized instruction (refer to packet that was sent home). I appreciate your support at home.
