Hundley Headlines - November 7-11, 2016


WEEK 10 – November 7-11, 2016

WOW!  It is hard to believe that the first nine-weeks of Kindergarten is already over.  I am pleased to be meeting with each of you at our scheduled conference time!
This week we will:
  • learn about short vowel sounds  =  /a/ (apple) /e/ (egg) /i/ (inchworm) /o/ (octopus) and /u/ (umbrella)
  • learn proper letter formation of vowels = Aa, Ee, Ii, Oo and Uu
  • review all consonant sounds and be able to use these at the beginning of new words
  • recognize and read all of our Power Words at FLASH SPEED!
  • track words: match spoken word with print when we read
  • write and identify letters, words, and sentences
  • answer questions about stories that we read
  • Math:  count by 1s and 10s; learn to count on from a given number; identify one more and one less than a number (one more than 9, one less than 5)
Homework for the week:
  • read for 30 minutes every night and log in at least 2 steps for the 30 minutes that you read; if you read for more than 30 minutes – log in another book, remember: every 15 minutes equals one step
  • practice ALL Power Words each night, remember: flash speed!
