Kindergarten October 19 Update

This week we learned about our tongue-dancing letters, the tap-dancing "t" and the drumming "d".  Ask your child if they know some words that start with these letters!  We have been "bouncing" words to double-check their beginning sounds.  You pretend you're bouncing a ball with your hand while saying "d-d-d-dinosaur" (for example).  Try it out at home!  Students also drew self-portraits today.  Their drawing, printing, and colouring skills have improved a lot in the last month!
