Halfway!

Parents,

We are officially halfway through the school year. I wanted to let you know what your student should be able to do at this time of the year.

Letters and sounds mastered

Numbers 0-30

Able to recognize first, middle, and/or ending sounds

Blending (You say the sounds C – A – T, the student says cat)

Spelling CVC words (Consonant – Vowel – Consonant)

Simple addition through 20

Simple subtraction through 20

Telling time to the hour

Complete simple bar graphs

Able to understand and write a full sentence with uppercase, lowercase, finger spaces, and periods.

If your student is unable to do one or more of these, please make sure you’re spending time at home working on these.

Thank you,

Shawn Miehlke

Updates!

Parents,

The students have been doing excellent on their recent spelling tests! There will be no spelling words for the week of 12/18.

Monday – Full Day

Tuesday – Full Day

Wednesday – Early Out (Friday Schedule)

Next week the December homework packet will be due on Wednesday (12/20). Your student will be bringing home an activity packet with them on Wednesday. Please make sure to take a few minutes each day to work on the packet. It’s super easy, I promise.

Your student will also bring home an updated progress report. This will include initial sounds, final sounds, blending, CVC words, telling time, and addition.

We will be having a small popcorn and movie Christmas party on Wednesday for our short day. Students can wear their PJ’s if they would like.

Thank you, and have a safe and happy holidays!
