Your kindergartener will need to be able to identify, write, and give the sound for all 26 capital and lowercase letters.
 
Here is the order we teach the letters/sounds: Mm, Tt, Aa, Ss, Pp, Cc, Ii, Nn, Br, Rr, Dd, Kk, Oo, Ff, Hh, Ll, Gg, Ee, Yy, Ww, Jj, Xx, Uu, Vv, Zz, and Qq.
 
Below is the list of sight words your kindergartener should be able to read by the end of the school year. We often tell students that these are sight words or heart words. This means that often, these words can’t be stretched or sounded out. They must know them quick and fast by looking at the word and knowing what it is in our heart. Once your child has mastered reading these sight words, have them practice writing them too! 
 
  • Quarter 1: I, am, the, like, to a, is, he, my, we, for, me, can
  • Quarter 2: look, see, she, have, of, do, you, go, and
  • Quarter 3: make, here, are, said, come, play, some
  • Quarter 4: with, that, this, they, be, so, what, from, was, little, no
This year in math your kindergartener will master many new math skills. Please look over the list below to get an idea of what skills you can be working on with your child at home.
 
  • Counting to 100 by 1’s and 10’s
  • Identifying the Numbers 0-20
  • Writing the Numbers 0-20
  • Identifying More, Less, Equal
  • Simple Addition and Subtraction within 10
  • Creating and Identifying Patterns
  • Identifying 2D and 3D Shapes
Whenever you can, read to your child. As the school year goes on, have your child read to you! Make sure you are writing down the books you and your child are reading at home on their CARE Reading Log.
 
If you are ever looking for extra practice or ways to help your kindergartener learn at home, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher.
