As Spring Break approaches, I will be assessing students.  Here are some of the things I will be assessing:
Letter ID
Letter Sounds
Number Writing
Kindergarten Sight Words
Reading Levels

It is important that your child know all of his/her letters, sounds and as many sight words as possible.  I will be sending home a "report" that shares your child's assessments with you before spring break.  

Spring Celebration

Thank you to everyone who volunteered to donate items for our Spring Celebrations.  If you have not sent in your items, please do so when you have a chance.  We will not be having our Spring Celebration on March 4 as I originally planned.  We will save it for when we return from spring break.  With our play approaching so quickly, I feel it is just too much to squeeze in.  Thanks for your understanding and I will hold onto all items for our Spring Celebration.  

3 Piggy Opera Play

We will have our play on March 11.  It will be at 11 am in the cafeteria.  This is a minimum day so all students may go home following the play.
