TK/Kindergarten Newsletter

Week of January 11th-January 15th 



Hello  TK and Kindergarten Families,

 

We had a wonderful first week back to school after the winter break.  Thank you for all of your help and support during Falcon Academy.  I can really tell the kids are progressing and this is due to their hard work AND yours!  So, THANK YOU!

 

This week our “Sound/Letter Spelling of the Week” is Ii.  Please have your child pick out an item that begins with the Sound/Letter Ii for sharing this week.  As Ii is a vowel and makes more than one sound, their first clue should be:  My share begins with long i (i.e. ice cream, Ireland, etc.) or short i (igloo, inchworm, etc).  Students will share on their normal assigned day and Friday will be available for make ups if necessary.

 

Along with practicing our teen numbers this week, we will begin working on addition.  We will begin our study with “hands-on” manipulative practice as well as stories.  Towards the end of the week, we will begin to record addition facts with numbers and symbols.

 

The life and great accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr will be our focus in Social Studies this week.  Don’t forget, next Monday, January 18th, there is no school in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD IS READING TO YOU EVERYDAY!  Small books should be put in the book bag to re-read and practice.  BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR CHILD PRACTICE READING 2-3 BOOKS FROM THEIR BOOK BAG EACH DAY.  THESE BOOKS CAN BE LISTED ON THEIR READING LOG.  I CANNOT STRESS HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS FOR READING SUCCESS!

 

We are fast approaching the 100th day of school.  We are set to celebrate on Wednesday, February 3rd.  More information will be sent home soon. :)





As always, if you have any concerns, comments, questions, suRrestions, PLEASE reach out!
