• WRITING YOUR NAME
     
    Have your child practice writing his/name.
    Capital at the beginning and lowercase letters
    to follow.  This skill appears
    on the report card.
     
     
    LETTER NAMES/SOUNDS 
     
    Practice your letters and sounds EVERY night.  
    Use the fluency sheets I will send home to 
    become fluent in letters and sounds.  Our goal is to
    be great readers.  With your help, your
    child can succeed!
     
     
    SENTENCE WRITING 
     
    Please have your child practice
    writing a sentence with a capital
    at the beginning, lowercase 
    letters to follow, spaces between words,
    and a period at the end.
     
     
    MATH GOALS 
     
    By the end of the year, your 
    child should know:  How to 
    count to 100, identify 2D and 
    3D shapes, number 
    identification and writing 0-20, 
    can count with
    one-to-one correspondence,
    compare and classify objects, 
    and understand addition as 
    putting together and adding 
    to, and subtraction as taking 
    apart and taking from, and be 
    fluent in addition and sub-
    traction facts through 5.
     
     
    WRITING NUMBERS 
     
    Please work with your child on
    writing the numbers 0-20.
    Remember, as when  
    writing letters, we always start
    at the top and write down.  
    Writing numbers is difficult.
    Most students have problems
    with most of the numbers,
    so please practice at home.
