Mrs. Alicia Shea

Welcome to Mrs. Shea's Kindergarten class!

January in Kindergarten is an exciting time…but also a time when we continue to pick up the pace of what we are learning.

We are beginning to assess what your child has learned so far in Kindergarten for the second trimester marking period.  

Below please find the Kindergarten Report Card Benchmarks. These indicate what the expectations are for your child's achievement by the end of the year.  

Your child should aim to read at a level D by the end of Kindergarten.  These texts have two to six lines of print per page and have illustrations that generally match the text.  However, the text is not patterned as it is in the lower level books.  Students will need to use the reading strategies we have practiced to decode words.

Here are the reading strategies your child is learning how to use:

Look at the picture

Get my mouth ready

Look for a part or a chunk I know in the word


Read on, and then come back

Say the sounds, Read the word  (g-o-t)

High Frequency Words-
  To be benchmark at the end of the year, students need to be able to read at least 67 of the 75 words which are shown on a powerpoint that changes words every three seconds.

Letter and Sound ID
-  Students need to identify 50-54 sounds to be considered benchmark at the end of the year.


Students should be able to:

Count orally to 100
Count orally to 100 by 10's 
Write numbers 0-20 independently
Identify numbers 0-20
Identify simple shapes
Form simple shapes

We appreciate your continued support at home to help your child succeed. 

Please know that all parent/guardians need to have access to the web portal.  If you have not set this up, please stop by the office for more information.

Additional information to know: if you are planning on helping in any capacity, you MUST have clearances turned in to Clayton Avenue.  This is for classroom access and being a chaperone of field trips!!
