Happy Thursday, kindergarten students and families! We had such a full week: we are only two letters away from reviewing the whole alphabet, we finished our tongue twister, we are getting really good at our math games, and we finished Winnie-the-Pooh. Have a great weekend!
As always, reading with your child in the evenings is a great way to grow their mental word bank and fluency, and they may want to show their Math Card Deck to a parent or sibling after dinner!
If you find yourselves with more free time, please refer to our Additional Resources page for some great websites to explore.
See you next week for School Day #94.
