Dear Kindergarten Families,

Posted March 16th: While we are off for the Corona Virus/COVID-19, please stay in contact through remind messages or emails, help your child with their work packet, practice reading, review your child's nine weeks grade card expectations, skill sheets, and word lists (hard copies of these items were sent home with a note and newsletter as always in your child's folder/backpack), have your child visit the links on this webpage, and use the resources below to help your student at home.

Posted March 30th: The work packet originally sent home was to be finished by Tuesday, March 31st, keep the finished work packet in your child's folder/backpack. Beginning Wednesday, April 1st, I am asking all my students' parents to continue to do the things I have asked you to do all year: read with your child every day, play a game (if you do not have any board games or card games, there are links to online learning games and ideas listed at the bottom of this webpage, I sent hard copies of other ideas for Sight Word games and magnetic letter activities earlier in the year and every week on your school to home connection newsletter), and practice your child's nine weeks grade card expectations listed below.

At Home Ways to Help Your Kindergartner:

  • Read to your child and have them read to you, ask them questions about the story elements: characters, plot, setting, genre; have them make predictions, make real life connections to the text, help them notice text and graphic features (talk about how the pictures go with the words)

  • Check your student's folder: go over their work with them to discuss what they've been learning especially anything they were having trouble with, read our weekly story together, practice sight word list, and practice handwriting with first and last names, upper and lowercase letters, words, and sentences.

  • Encourage your child to write about pictures they've drawn or colored by phonetic spelling (sounding it out what they want to say and writing the letters for the sounds they hear)

  • Play bingo, memory/match/concentration games with sight words/letters

  • Play "I Spy" by having the child practice identifying and producing letter sounds/naming something that starts with a chosen letter or spying words

  • Play "Mystery Word" by saying sounds in a word and having child blend to name the word for example /c/-/a/-/t/=cat or /c/-/at/=cat

  • Play board games especially those with dice or number cards to reinforce counting and number sense

I did not build the link below and therefore cannot change what it says, it does have some good flashcards but this is just a few to practice not ALL the Kindergarten sight words
