April Showers Bring .... Cold Temperatures and Snow Flurries!

Please continue to send hats and mittens and warm jackets - the playground is very cold when it is a northwest wind especially.

Kindergarten Homework:
*Read a book each night (This is SO important - we can really see a difference in the progress of the students who read every night, especially in their confidence level when reading).
*Practice tricky words and sounds every night until you know them "in a snap". (Remember the tricky words are listed on the calendar, in case you lose the bag of words or wonder what the new words are for the week).
*Homework Writing Books: read the list of words to your child, one at a time, while the child writes down the sounds they hear. Feel free to help as needed, but try to say the sounds and not the letter names. We really want the students to hear all of the sounds in the words, and to know what letters to write down to make each sound.
