Kindergarten Portfolio Practice ~ Part III

Calling all incoming kindergarten families ~

As you know, we have challenged all of our incoming kindergarten students to complete the kindergarten portfolio and return it to school for the 2021-2022 school year. Completing this booklet not only helps you practice for skills you will use in kindergarten, but it also helps you earn an amazing kindergarten crew t-shirt.

Below is our final video in a 3 part series. This video models easy ways at home to work with sounds and building words. This skill will assist your child to be familiar with the sounds letters make and how to blend these together to form words. Please take some time to practice some of these activities as part of your kindergarten portfolio.
