Kindergarten News

Week of March 1st- March 5th 

I can’t believe we are already in March. The boys and girls have been doing such a great job and have progressed so much through this year! They completed their second round of their 

i-Ready diagnostic and are showing such awesome growth! 

We are continuing to prepare for Lent and have started reading about the Stations of the Cross in our religion books. 

We have introduced digraphs which is helping us to expand the words we can read and the sounds that we know! This is so helpful as our decodables getting more challenging each week. 

In Math, we are continuing to subtract simple math problems and different ways to make ten.
