Color Words Assessment and Practice

Good morning!

The color word assessment was sent home this week. Color words are the first step in our “snap word” list. If you begin the practice of studying these words, the benefits include an  increase in students confidence in attempting to read a solid foundation in frequent used words. The forms sent home are the students Pre-Assessment. We will be practicing these words throughout the next few weeks. Please continue to practice at home.

 

How to Practice Color Words

Below are ways you can practice color words.

  1. Flash card games.  Simply cut out the words in cards and flash the cards as the child read the words. I click HERE to download a color word flash card sheet. Simply cut out the color words and show each of them to the student. Have the student read the word quickly.
  2.  Color Word Flashcards-1i06p5x
  3. Reading the colors in your environment.
  4. Reading Books with Color words… The Library is a great resource for these books. As a parent you are able to check out at least 5 books. Some color word books are (Brown Bear, Brown Bear and Mix It Up)
  5. Watching Youtube videos that have color words as a theme.

End of Year + Photo Collection

Good afternoon!

Happy Monday!

As the year is coming to an end, I am so excited and quite sad to be seeing the KG2TD Minions move on. They have matured so much in the past 11 months that we have been in school (From August -June!)

I would like to request any photos that you might have of the kids together (Shared via whatsapp) to be uploaded in the Google Photo drop. I will be making a personal memory book for each student so, the more photos we have the more memories I might be able to place in the book. The link to the drive is : https://photos.app.goo.gl/qrkY2B3AcbGdtzaR9

We are still learning in KG2TD! Please make sure through the end of this week students are not missing days. Assessments, projects, and lots of love is happening and I do not want them to miss out!

Leaving Early? Take Student Portfolios! 

Finally, thank you to all the parents who have sent an email regarding leaving early/ prior to June 28th. If your student is leaving early, please let me know a day or 2 before so we can prepare their school work and portfolios for them to take home. So much amazing student work that show progress that you do not want to go to trash at the end of the year.

 

Thank you for a wonderful year, I will miss you all!

 

Best,TD

Updates for This Week and a Special “Taco”

Good afternoon!

I hope you all are having a safe and blessed Ramadan.

Please note the following:

  1. Homework Bingo has been suspended during Ramadan.
  2. We begin Art next week Sunday.
  3. MAP TESTING! Is coming up next week Monday and Tuesday. We are practicing at school our IPAD stamina. I want the students to be able to focus on the test with only small distractions, so when they are practicing make sure they are hitting the “Listen” button and understanding the questions being asked of them.  I will send out on Wednesday some IXL or Kids A-Z practice you can work on at home alternatively.
  4. Late Pick Up If you are running late during 12:45 pick up, students will be moved to an assigned KG2s classroom. Please try to get to school by 8:00 and have students picked up by 12:45 to beat the rush.
  5. End of Year Scripts for our End of Year Performances have been sent home. Please PRACTICE with your student as we have only 2 more weeks until the special day!

It is Taco Tuesday, and I waited all week to Thank YOU for my Surprise Birthday TACO FIESTA! It was the sweetest surprise I could have possibly gotten. *Taco* very much!

 

 

Best,

TD
