    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.
