Kindergarten

The Bertram PreK/Kinder team is excited about the 2018-19 school year. Can you believe it is already time for Spring Break? The fifth six weeks is off to a great start and it is amazing to see our kindergarteners blossom. Readers are moving into green books learning how to tackle those tricky words. In writing students are learning how to write true stories with complete sentences. Mathematicians will explore 2D shapes, 3D shapes, and money this six weeks. Continue to read at home earning those reading steps.

 

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.
