    Reading Strategies
     
    Read a book each night to someone
    at home in order to become a more fluent reader.
     
    Remember the three ways to read a book:  
    1. Read the words  
    2. Read the pictures  
    3.  Retell the story
     
     
     
    We have started learning these strategies to become better readers.

    SchoolWide Writing

    We are learning about list and label style books.  Authors use labels in many ways to make their books more interesting and more informative.  We will make books with labels.

    Star Student!
     
    No Star Students this week!  
    Click on the schedule below to see when it will be your turn!
     
     
    In kindergarten, the “Everyone’s A Star” program is a chance for every child to shine! The purpose of the program is to get to know and appreciate each other as individuals and to help build self-esteem. I will assign each student a day during the school year to be the classroom star. This will usually be around the time of their birthday if possible. The week before your child is assigned to be the “star” they will bring home a star bag to fill with five (5) things (treasures!) that are important to him/her.  They will also receive a poster to make with you at home.  Have fun with it!  Work together!  Use markers, crayons, pictures, anything you like in order to decorate the poster to represent your star and their family. You will receive the poster back at the end of the week so your pictures will be returned!  The Star will have a chance to share these items with the class.
