Welcome to Mrs. Wright's Kindergarten Class ! 

At-Home Practice:

  • Be sure to read each day with your child - even if it's just for 10 minutes! The cumulative effect of reading each day to, and with your child is very powerful!  Take a moment during and after reading to talk about who the 'important person' (main character) is, where the story is taking place, (setting), and what they think may happen next, (predicting), the problem in the story and how it was solved. By engaging your child this way you keep are reinforcing comprehension skills!
  • Practice Letter and Numeral skills - Keep it fun and just for a short period of time. Pointing out letters and numerals in real-life situations is a great way to practice!
  • Look for Letter Printing Practice Homework Sheets  - There will be 2 each week!
  • Promote Building Classroom Friendships - Ask your child who they may have played with, sat at their table with, or sat next to on our rug.  We are all working on getting to know each other here in school with songs and games that help children to learn each other's names.
  • Ask Engaging Questions Continue to ask specific questions to get the best conversation going with your child.  The more typical questions such as, what did you do today?"  or "how was your day?" tend to be too broad and end up with an "I don't know" or "nothing" response.
  • Always feel free to contact me with any questions, information, or concerns.  Thank you for working together with me for your child's best Kindergarten experience!
