Kindergarten Team:

Miss Kelly, Ms. DiMatteo, Mrs. Rich (Paraprofessional), and Mrs. Tanner

Finally we can see some Spring/Summer weather here! During our Reading Workshop mini-lessons, we have begun talking about fiction text. We have learned about the important parts of a fiction text; the characters, the setting, and the plot! During the month of May, we will be doing our final assessments on the children's literacy skills and reading. This may cause a disruption in their small group meeting time. Don't be surprised if the books in their literacy bags aren't changed as often.

In Writer's Workshop, we have been working on writing Small Moment stories. In these types of stories, the children write about something that has really happened to them. They are beginning to write stories across several pages. Their writing has come so far this year! It is amazing to see.

In Math, we have just finished up our unit on subtraction skills. We are now moving into learning about bigger numbers, the teen numbers and numbers up to 100. Please practice counting with your children each night. Writing the teen numbers with your child will also be a good skill to practice.

Some May dates to keep in mind are the Literacy Classroom visit day on Friday May 11th, the Indian Rock Field Trip on Monday, May 21st, and the Bristol Public Library field trip on Friday, May 25th. Thank you!

Here are some things to do with your child:

  • Read nightly
  • Practice reading the 25 and 50 sight words lists
  • Practice counting to 100
  • Write numbers 1 to 20
  • Practice tying shoes
  • Go onto Raz Kids
  • Go onto Sumdog


* Check Take Home Folders nightly and return to them to school.

*Read nightly and fill in reading log.

*Sign and return reading log and homework calendar at the end of the month.

*Make sure all lunch money is labeled in an envelope.

*Please write a note for any changes in dismissal.

*Please provide 1 healthy snack a day for your child.

*Provide a complete change of clothes to be kept at school if you did not already do so.

Just a reminder to all families, please continue to support your child's learning by reading nightly and completing the homework calendar tasks. Also, don't forget to utilize Raz-kids and Sumdog as a tool to help your child practice grade level skills.
