Welcome Kindergarteners

Dear Parents, 

 

Welcome!!! On August 15th, your child will experience one of the most important milestones in his/her life... the first day of Kindergarten!  Your child will have a full year of exciting learning experiences.  It is a new world for the kindergartner as he or she begins on the wonderful road of learning.

 

We place a high priority on parent involvement, so join us in helping make "your" school a true community!  It will be a most rewarding adventure for you and your child!

 

By the end of Kindergarten your child will:

* Identify all upper and lower case letters of the alphabet within one minute

* Master all consonant and short vowel sounds

* Recognize 67 High Frequency Words

* Read and write independently

* Read, write and count up to 30 (although, most children leaving kindergarten will write and count to 100)

* Simple addition and subtraction

 

As you can see, we have many skills to master.  To prepare your child for the busy year ahead, please work on the following:

* Write his or her name

* Identify and write numbers to 10

* Name and describe shapes (circle, square, triangle, rectangle)

* Recognize primary colors

* Practice the letters and sounds of the alphabet

 

We are looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year with you and your child!
