Kindergarten – Overweg

February Newsletter

Hello all,

I hope all is going well! We have another busy month ahead of us! We will be finishing up our space unit and moving into dental health! We will be exploring our teeth and learning about how to keep them healthy.  We will be learning about foods that are good for us as well as bad. We finished up the first semester with a bang! NWEA testing is done and everyone showed a tremendous amount of growth!   I am proud them all for all the hard work they do every day!

Thank you for sharing your children with us.

What we will be working on:
Aside from all the fun exploring space, we are continuing to work on letter sounds, word build, sight words, and writing! In math we review patterns, skip counting (5’s and 10’s, and we will be starting by 2’s soon), money (only coins), basic addition and subtraction, and counting to 100.  These are skills that we cover every day and can be easily reviewed at home! I have attached the list of new sight words will be learning this month! If you need any tips or tricks for how to help your child at home, please do not hesitate to ask!

Thank you all for all you do every day! Its greatly appreciated!
