Bienvenidos to Kindergarten!

Hola Padres!

It is with great pleasure that we share with you the wonderful things that we are working on in Kindergarten!

We have been learning how sounds and letters are the building blocks of literacy by working on alphabet recognition activities and phonemic awareness exercises. We are particularly learning the sound /m/ and the letter “M”. Students will be practicing how to write the capital “M” and lower case and “m” as they also learn to identify /m/ sounds in a variety of familiar words. Next in our list are the letters “L” and “F”. Stay tuned!

Also supporting literacy, we have been learning lots of Spanish through everyday routines and greetings. We have learned songs that are not only fun but that teach our students important vocabulary, such as, the days of the week, the months, greetings, body parts, etc. All that in just a couple of weeks! Our Spanish songs are also a fun way of learning numbers, colors and motor skills… and many other things, really… the sky is the limit! These kinders’ passion for learning Spanish is unique! In the next couple of weeks, we will continue developing other listening and speaking skills to support building a strong foundation for language learning. In particular, we will learn and reinforce vocabulary (both in English and Spanish) regarding school and self-identity, celebrating the uniqueness of all of our class members.

Mathematical Literacy is also a big part of our daily routines. Students are working on recognizing and naming numerals from 1 to 10 in both languages of instruction. We will continue building number sense by sorting objects in sets of specific quantities, printing digits, etc.

We are also pleased to announce (although we are sure that you have already heard from your child…) that our kindergarten classes have music lessons. The music curriculum teaches students to appreciate music and to feel comfortable when performing in front of an audience, but most importantly, they are learning to have fun with music!

As you may realize, the diversity in our classrooms is huge in many areas. Please be assured that we will do our best to personalize learning and provide our students with the challenges that their individual developmental stages require. In order to support our kinders learning, please encourage your child to practice reading environmental printing as you drive around with them, writing their name, counting objects, etc. Every bit of practice helps!

Gracias and we look forward to a wonderful 2019-20 school year!
