It’s hard to believe that it’s March already.  Students are really working hard.  We will be completing the second round of Fountas and Pinnell (reading) assessment towards the end of the month.  Here are a few ways you can help your child continue to be successful in Kindergarten.

         *Your child should read their 100 Book Challenge books to you each night.  In addition to their 100 Book Challenge books, your child should read a couple of their sight word books to continue practicing their words within the text.  Make sure your child is using some strategies when they are stuck. After they read each book, ask them a few comprehension questions to make sure they are understanding what they are reading.

         *Continue practicing their rainbow words each night so they can get the next color words.  This will help them keep up with the fast pace of learning Kindergarten sight words.

         *Continue to have your child work with letter cards.  Matching capital and lowercase letters, telling you their names and sounds, making a word and changing the letters to make new words.

         *Practice counting each day with your child.  They need to count by 1’s to 100 and by 10’s to 100 by the end of the year.

         *Have your child practice writing their numbers from at least 0 to 20 and identifying the numbers between 0 and 20.  The teen numbers can be very tricky!

I hope you have found some helpful ideas.  Your child’s success is a team effort and it is a pleasure to team up with you!
