Reading- We  are working very hard in Reading. We are continuing to learn to recognize the alphabet and matching upper and lower case letters. We will be introduce to  all of our letters and their sounds by the end of the first semester. We will practice these and blend sounds together to make words. We will work on this often in our small Reading groups.  Also, we will be learning to write complete sentences.  Students should  practice learning the  high frequency words both at school and at home.  Parents, please help you child to learn to write the high-frequency words.  This will help them in their writing.


These are the Kindergarten high-frequency words that your child is expected to learn this year.

The ones that are highlighted are the words we have been introduced to so far.
