Kindergarten Newsletter

Reading: Students should continue to practice recognition of all letters, their sounds, and especially writing them. The sight words we have learned to read are: am, a, for, have, I, is, little, like, look, my, me, of, see, she, the, to, they, we, with, and you.  Students should be able to tap and read simple words like fat, cap, pin, etc.
     This month we will learn the sight words: are, do, that, and number words one, two, three, four, and five.

Math:  The shape of the month is an oval.  We are using an ABC pattern with the colors lavender, pink, and yellow. We continue to count the number of days we have come to school.  We continue to work on Numbers to 31.  We will be moving on to Addition Readiness.

Religion: We will be learning a new morning prayer,  The Morning Offering.   We have been reading a lot in the New Testament in preparation for Easter. We have read the stories of Wedding at Cana, Loaves and Fishes, and the Good Samaritan.  This month we will work on the Prodigal Son, Jesus Heals the Blind Man, Palm Sunday, continuing through Holy Week with Washing of the Apostles' Feet, The Last Supper, Good Friday, and the Resurrection.
