Welcome To Mrs. Ross' Kindergarten Class!!! 




 Here are some things that we are curently working on in Reading/Language Arts:


Countdown - Countdown is a series of lessons focused on the essentials of foundational skils that students master in their early reading eduction. The lessons are designed to teach the essential skills, which promote strong decoding and fluent, accurate reading. 


Reading Comprehension - Students read short passages with fluency and answer questions. They use their text to refer to when needed to answer the questions. 


Sight Words - Please be sure you are studying them daily with your child! It is very important that they practice these everyday!!! You can find a list of all the sight words on this site as well in your childs binder in the page protector. 


Phonograms - Are the sounds that the letters make. A list of phonograms can be found on this site.


Writing - We are practicing writing 3 or more sentences daily. All sentences have their sight and challenege words in it.  This is also why it is important for students to know their sight words and challenge words.
