7th graders taught younger students about many modern artists who drew inspiration from West African masks, and then students got to create their own.

Kindergarten Meet Cass & Oswald!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Happy Monday!

Our class met new friends named Cass and Oswald today.  They are the first Super Kids from our new phonics and reading program.

Cass has a cat named Coconut and she also loves to cook casseroles in the kitchen.  While meeting Cass, the class reviewed the letter C and the /k/ sound.  A good way to reinforce this review of the letter C and the /k/ sound is to have your child help you in the kitchen and talk about things that begin with the letter C.

Oswald is an expert at odd animals like Octopus, Otters, Oxen, and Ocelots.  While meeting Oswald, the class reviewed the letter O and the short vowel /ŏ/ sound.  A good way to reinforce this review of the letter and short /ŏ/ sound is by brainstorming other words or even “odd” animals that have the same beginning letter and sound!

The kindergarten class will be introduced to more friends that will aid in their reading this week! Stay tuned 🙂

 

Bonne année 2019!
