Kindergarten Sight Words
We will have 75 sight words to master in Kindergarten this year. Each quarter we will focus on a certain number of words. There will be focus words for the week. Please make a note card at home of the sight words for the week to review nightly with your child. Thank you for your support in your child's reading success.
This program stands for "promoting alternative thinking strategies." We will choose a "paths" kid each week and give special compliments to that child. We will learn all types of feelings and that all feelings are ok. During Paths time throughout the year we will learn that friends: share, help and play. A strategy to help us cope with issues is called "doing turtle." We will practice this all year! We love our Paths characters: Twiggle, Duke, Daphne and Henrietta!!
