A huge thank you to the parents who donated to my Donors Choose project. We will be getting a brand new set of Dr. Seuss books as well as a set of 17 Mo Willems books.
I am so thankful to this amazing group of parents. It’s evident to me that you all care deeply about your child’s success in kindergarten.
Ways to Help Your Child:
-Begin having them tell you to “catch the beginning sound” of a word. If you say “boat” they should say the /b/ sound.
-Work on WRITING!! I am really pushing handwriting/letter formation this year. I want these kids to be master writers when they enter 1st. We’ve worked on every letter so far. Make sure your child can write his/her first AND last name correctly.
-Check out websites like abcya.com and starfall.com. These are two of my go-to’s in the classroom. They have fun, interactive games that are also teaching them! Yay!
Here’s some pictures from the week. Feel free to explore the blog!
