Kindergarten
Happy 100th Day of School!  
On Monday, January 15th we will be celebrating the 100th day of school.  It is a little confusing around SHV, since some teachers choose to celebrate the 100th day on the Friday before.  The teachers felt some children may not be in school on Monday if their parents are off work.  Our Kindergarten class has been counting faithfully every day.  They have a good sense of what 100 is.  They have made 10 sets of ten. they can count to 100 by 1s, 5s and 10s.We will spend a good portion of the day exploring with 100 various items. I will take and post pictures of our day.

UNIT 12 in THE SUPERKIDS teaches the sound /h/ at the beginning of words.  We have meet our last Superkid, Hot Rod.  The sound of /h/ can be tricky for some children.  When sounding out and recalling the sound of /h/ refer your child to this character's name Hot Rod. Hot Rod dreams of being a race car driver with a fast car he names "Fast Cat."
