Beginning on the first day of kindergarten, your child will be expected to read and write their first name.
Students in kindergarten must be able to identify both uppercase and lowercase letters.
To learn letter formation, correct pencil grip and always starting "at the top" is very important.
Letter sounds are the foundation of reading. Once your child can produce the letter sounds, they will begin to be able to blend sounds to read words.
A syllable where the silent e at the end of the word makes the vowel before it have a long sound.
A consonant blend is a written consonant sequence that often comes before or after a vowel in a word or syllable. Each letter in a blend retains its individual sound.
A syllable that has at least one vowel followed by r. The r gives it a unique sound.
Vowel teams are a combination of letters that represent one vowel sound. Many words are made of vowel teams, so it is important that students are able to decode and spell them to read and write.
Students will learn to identify rhyming words as well as produce rhymes. Rhyming words are words that have the same ending sounds.
