May 1st - May 5th Letter Kk

Dear Parents,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

This week we are going to be working with the letter Kk. The vocabulary that we are going to be focusing on is the following: kangaroo, key, kite, kiss, karate, kick, koala, kiwi, kaleidoscope, kimono, kettle, ketchup, kayak, kitten, and kitchen.
If you have any items at home that begin with this letter, send them over with your child and we will be discussing them in class, we will display them on a table and we will return them back on Friday. The kids get excited to bring things from home.
Some of the stories that we will be reading this week are:

These kangaroo have all kinds of kazoos! This rhyming tale invites readers to join their kooky band and learn about the letter K.

On a windy spring day, what do Bear and Mole decide to do? Why, fly a kite, of course! But first they have to build one. They design, measure, and finally construct their kite. With a zoom, zoom, zoom the kite soars up, up, up in the air. But when a storm rumbles in --SNAP!--the kite string breaks! The chase is on as the two friends tear after their kite and find it in a tree, protecting a nest of baby birds from the rain.

The five new sight words for this week are: out, little, him, who, and make, .  

These words are the last five sight words we will learn in Kindergarten. We learned a total of 80 sight words!!! Please practice these words at home with your child every day.

In Phonemic Awareness we will be introducing some digraphs. The digraphs that we will be studying this week are SH and CH.
In language, a digraph is two letters or characters that make a single sound when pronounced, also known as a phoneme. The sound made by the digraph is usually noticeably different than the pronunciations of the individual letters would be. SHark, SHeep, SHell, SHip, SHoe.   CHicken, CHeese, CHair, CHin. 

In Math we are going to be doing a lot of exercises or ordering numbers from least to greatest. The children will be given a group of three or more numbers and they will have to arrange them from the smallest number to the biggest one.

This week we are going to be talking about Mercury and Venus.  They love learning facts about the planets. Ask them questions and you will be surprised of all the things they know. 

Our firstMAP session will be Wednesday May 3rd. Please help us by making sure your child gets plenty of sleep.
