Kindergarten!Thank you to all of our wonderful parents for sharing your children with me this year.It was with your help that we were able to complete this year with remote learning. I truly appreciate all that you have done to continue your child's learning, as challenging at it may have been at times.The true reward was being able to see the children grow and complete much of the work we began in school. Hopefully you are able to see that growth as well!I wish you all a relaxing summer, however, remember it is improtant for your child to continue to read and practice fast facts and sight words at home over the summer. I hope that I have given you some tools over the past few months, to make that easier and fun for your child.A great summer motto is to have fun and learn something new each day!Many companies are offering free access to parents during the summer. I will try to add a few here for you to look into.Epic.com is continuing to offer free site access over the summer. There will be a 2 hr limit per week for this service.The following link is provided by Audible (Amazon’s audiobook service). They are providing free audio story books while the world is dealing with the pandemic.

Starting the 3rd week, we will focus on 2 letters a week, review each letter, sound and discriminate between the uppercase and lowercase letter.How Can You Help At Home:Practice the letters and their sounds daily.
During review at home, see if your child can think of 3-5 words that begin with that letter.
Have him/her look for things around your house that begin with the letters you are practicing.
Identify the beginning letter of family members or family friends names.
Have your child help with shopping and helping to write the shopping list.Switlik PTNIf you have not already done so, please consider joining the Switlik PTN.Every dollar raised by the PTN, goes right back to your students!
