This month we will be looking at the letters Kk and Xx. Try to find these letters as you read to your child.
See how many words you can find that "start the same". Alliteration-(start the same) and Rhyming-(sound the same)
are very important skills to learn in preschool because it will help with future reading skills.
Practice! Practice! Practice! We will be going outside if the sun is shining and if the temperature is at least 20 degrees.
Please send warm outside clothes (snow pants-hats-mittens) for your child and make sure to label the items.
