Mrs. Gwaltney's Good News

Welcome to Kindergarten!  I hope you are excited about coming along on this journey with me.  The year holds much promise and I can't wait to watch your child learn and grow.

Language Arts

Your child will learn 31 Word Wall words, or sight words this year.  These will be introduced 2-3 per week.  It will be important for your child not only to read these in isolation, but in context as well.  Near the end of the year all children who know all 31 word wall words will attend the Word Wall Ball.  This is a very exciting event and the whole school turns out for our Word Wall Ball Parade.  The words are: 

I, can, we, like, the, a, see, my, go, is, have, to, you, for, and, do, look, are, this, what, said, here, play, was, she, with, he, little, me, has, where
