Math

This month in math we will be reviewing skills that they will revisit in first grade. We will also spend time on math routines and games that will also review topics previously taught this year, as well as promote in depth math discussion between students.

Reading

This month in reading we will be spending time with rich read alouds and comprehension skills. The students will focus on diving deeper into these books and also how to use the texts to answer more higher order questions. Please keep reading with your children and asking them these deep questions to promote conversation and understanding. Also, continue to have them using RazKids and Epic Books.

Writing

In Writing, the children will be using everything they have learned this year to write books of their choice. They could choose true stories, all about, how to’s, or persuasive. This is their time to be super creative! We know how hard they have worked this year in all genres and look forward to reading all their pieces. Over the summer, consider having them keep a journal. They could write in it about their summer adventures.

Science Technology Engineering Art Math “S.T.E.A.M.”

Teachers will have their students participate in a variety of S.T.E.A.M. projects this month. Both in-person and remote will get a chance to participate in these creative projects.

Phonics

In phonics this month, we again will continue to review long and short vowels, CVCe words, and endings such as -ing, -ed, -er, and -es. We will also be reviewing blends and digraphs to prepare the children for first grade. Please continue to work with your children at home on all these areas and strategies.

Happy Summer!

We want to take a moment to wish all of you a wonderful and safe summer! This certainly has been a year to remember! Throughout it all, you have all remained resilient and patient. Your children have been champions! We could not thank you enough for sticking with us throughout it all.  We will see you all in FIRST GRADE!

Love, The Kinder Team! XO (hugs and kisses)
