Yikes! Sea Creatures in the Computer Lab!

We did something exciting and new today! We visited the Library computer lab! While there, the kids learned a new Paint program and created a sea creature habitat picture that connected to their research projects. These art pieces will be used for a PowerPoint presentation that the kids will be doing at our upcoming Open House. It will be a wonderful surprise so I hope you can make it.

Word Study Practice

I have been busy reassessing students to see the progress that they have made. This is my favorite part of the year. Their progress is tremendous. Tomorrow your child will be bringing home a list of Kindergarten sight words that s/he still needs to practice reading. For those who know all of the words, I will attach the first grade word list. Keep in mind that they do not need to be able to write these words, just read them. However, writing them does help...that is why they practice "Rainbow Writing" these words. See if you can encourage your child to practice his/her words at home.

Dear Parents: Just a reminder: The Kindergarten students will perform their winter program on Wednesday, February 6th.
