    Welcome to the Kindergarten page!  
      We have gotten our first three weeks under our belt.
    We are working hard at following directions. 
     We finished up MAP Testing and AIMSweb testing.
    These are tests that help us determine which students may
    benefit from interventions.
    Keep an eye on the websight  for new sight words
    to practice at home as well as math topics we will
    be working on. 

    Important Upcoming Events:

    Please be conscious of your child's speech and grammar.  By 5yrs old children
    should no longer be saying "her is" or "helping we".  Using the proper grammar is
    critical to the writing process.  Students need to use correct speech in order to
    write properly.
    Handwriting at this age is important! Please be sure your child is forming
     their letters and numbers correctly.  They should start each letter from the top.
    Many are starting from the bottom.  This can be a hard habit to
    break, but will be important when they begin cursive in second grade.
    If you need to reach me for any reason, please call school after 3:00 at 815-726-5218
