This Week...

This week is the last week of the 2nd quarter...this means that half of kindergarten is over (I cannot believe it is going this fast).  We have been assessing last week and will continue this week.  The biggest area I am noticing is sight words.  The words in yellow are the words your child should know.  If you find your child does not know these words, please work with your child.  Next week, you will receive a copy of how your child did on their sight words.
This week, we will be continuing on with subtraction.  We will be playing subtraction bowling and I am in need of tennis balls.  If you have any tennis balls to spare and could send one or two in for our use that would be wonderful.  The children are doing a GREAT job with subtraction.  The only area I am noticing is sometimes children get subtraction and addition signs confused.  This would be something you can work on at home.  You can make different story problems up using addition and subtraction and have your child figure it out.  Snack and meal times work great for this activity.  In addition, if your child likes to help cook, this would be a great time to work on this skill as well.
