Summer Is Around the Corner!

Published on 5/28/2018

I can't believe school is almost out for the summer! I have enjoyed getting to know all of my Pandas and will miss you! I hope all of you have an AWESOME summer and have a great 2018-19 school year!

Suggestions for the Summer Break:

*continue to review naming letters and telling letter sounds

*sight words

*counting by rote to 100 and counting objects

*name numerals 0-30+

*color/color words

*shapes/shape words

**Please read the information on your child's checklist that will be coming home with him/her on the last day of school, Thursday, June 7, with their report card, because I added other suggestions for you to work on with your child during the summer break!

**Always read to your child for 20 minutes daily and ask him/her questions about the story and/or have your child retell the story to you. You can also, let your child read the story by talking about pictures for him/her to build his/her oral language and vocabulary skills.

Thank you for all your support throughout the 2017-18 school year! I couldn't do my job without your continued support!
