Assessments

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 (end of kindergarten reading level is 5) 

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.  

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.  We will be starting PROMPTLY at 11 am. 

Homework

The only homework this week is to read nightly and continue practicing sight words.  No need to check the homework tab this week.  I  did not update it.  There is no packet and no share homework this week!
