Kindergarten camp is now over and it is official--I am your child's kindergarten teacher!  :)  In the upcoming week we will begin our reading curriculum.  Over the next three weeks your child will be quickly introduced to every letter of the alphabet.  After the three weeks are over, we will go over all 26 letters in depth.  Along with letters, our first sight word will be introduced on Monday!  The first sight word is, I.  Each week we will be discussing an essential question.  All of the books and activities will be based around the essential question.  Our first essential question is: How is everyone special?   Reading Overview: Letters: Aa-Hh Sight Word: I Essential question: How is everyone special? We will also begin our math curriculum on Monday.  Our math curriculum does not focus on just one topic a week, instead it spirals.  That means we will discuss many different math topics and then continue to come back and learn about those topics in depth.   Math Overview: Comparing lengths, introduction to shapes, and counting/number recognition (1-10).   Homework: Wednesday Thursday *All homework pages will be printed on yellow/gold paper.  They can be returned whenever your child completes them.  If the homework page asks you to play a game, please just sign the homework page and return it to school with your child so that I know they have played the game at home.  Thanks!!  Important Dates: MAP testing week 8/27: 1st Guidance Lesson 8/28: 1st Art Class! 8/31: Wacky Hair Day!! Other Important Information: *MAP testing begins on Monday.  We will complete the MAP Assessment (Measures of Academic Progress) M-Th in 30 minute settings.  The students will answer reading and math questions on the iPad. "MAPĀ® Growth™ measures what students know and informs what they’re ready to learn next. By dynamically adjusting to each student’s responses, MAP Growth creates a personalized assessment experience that accurately measures performance."  Please let me know if you have any questions about the MAP assessment.   **Please provide your student with a PEANUT FREE snack each day.  Your student may also bring a water bottle each day to use in class to stay hydrated :)  Thank you!!
