Kindergarten News: 10/20

Hi Families!
We hope you had a wonderful fall break! This week, the students will read a new story in ELA. The students will read and respond to this text to continue building strong routines for ELA. In foundations, the students will be reviewing the letters A, T, M, D, O, C, G, C and I. We encourage you to continue working on letters at home and through some of the practice pages in the foundations workbooks we have sent home previously. In math, the students are beginning to add and subtract. Stay tuned for more updates!
