Kindergarten

The Bertram PreK/Kinder team is excited about the 2018-19 school year. The end of the year is fast approaching and we have one last 6 weeks left of school. Students will continue to work hard in ARC learning the 60 1G power words and venture into the 2G words. In math we will continue to explore money, counting to 100 by 1's, and by 10's. Later we will cover measurement learning all about length, weight, and capacity. On May 1st kindergarten will have a field trip to Crowe's Nest Farm in Manor, Texas.

 

Kindergarten Roundup Coming Soon...see flyer for more information
PreK and Kindergarten had lots of baby chicks hatch the week of May 1st. Egg-citing to watch and learn about animal life cycles.
 
Family Math & Science was a success!  What a fun night to do math and science together and see what kind of learning is going on in the classroom. 
Strategies to help with your child learning to read.  When coming to unfamiliar or tricky words don't just give your child help. Encourage them to try something to figure out the unknown word. These are some strategies we use in the class.
Kindergarten has been working very hard to earn steps and get to 1G books. Check skill card to see how you can help your child move through the 1Y-3Y books. Readers know their consonant sounds and use them to help figure our unknown words.  We get our mouth ready like Lips the Fish to move through the word.
Kindergarten goal for the second semester is to be reading on a 1G.  Readers need to know 25 power words and all the consonant letter sounds. Please use the skill card to guide your home reading. Readers look for parts they know in tricky words to help with unfamiliar words.
Kindergarten uses superhero power to fuel their brain with power words! Flying to the top to meet our goal of 60 power words needed to be reading on 2G...end of the year expectation. 
 
The future of Texas...class of 2031! We set big dreams and aim high. Watch out world.
