I have added all returning students to our Superkids Program online. Parents please use the same password and email that you used during kindergarten...they may log-in as they wish to read all of the stories available to them during our Review Unit...The Review Unit also has games that match what we are working on in class. Parents of new students-a form went home on Friday (attached to the packet of work) giving you information about the Superkids. Your child can get online while at school to read, but not at home until I receive the form back that was sent home to set-up your account.
New to the Superkids website is an avatar. Each child will be able to design their own person. After the first week that they get on the website at school I will lock the avatar so they cannot change the avatar while they are at school. They can still change the avatar while they are at home.
Writing: Use nouns and verbs to complete sentences and looking at the end of sentences to see if the sentence is a question or a statement.
Math: Practice writing the word form of numbers to ten...Vocabulary- less than, greater than, same as, more, fewer....We will also work on number patterns....For example, 1,2,_,_. 5 or 4,_,6,_,8 and students have to fill-in the missing numbers.
