Open House Wapping Elementary School

  1. 1. Welcome To Kindergarten!
  2. 2. PLEASE LABEL E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. Please also keep an extra set of pants, socks and underwear in your child’s backpack. (The school nurse is not able to store extra clothing in her office.)
  3. 3. PLEASE SEND IN ONE, SMALL, HEALTHY SNACK AND ONE HEALTHY DRINK EACH DAY. SOME STUDENTS ARE STILL CONFUSED ABOUT LUNCH VS SNACK. PLEASE PROVIDE STRAWS, NAPKINS, AND UTENSILS, IF THEY ARE NEEDED. PLEASE SEND SNACK ITEMS THAT ARE EASILY OPENED BY YOUR CHILD. PUDDING CUPS, JUICE POUCHES AND SMALL FRUIT CUPS ARE ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT FOR MOST YOUNG CHILDREN TO MANAGE, INDEPENDENTLY. THE BOARD OF EDUCATION WELLNESS POLICY: Healthful party menus and nonfood alternatives for celebrations will be encouraged. Healthful snacks in appropriate portions will be encouraged. Students and staff will be encouraged to wash their hands prior to mealtime.
  4. 4. Healthy Snack Ideas: "We can make a commitment to promote vegetables and fruits and whole grains on every part of every menu. We can make portion sizes smaller and emphasize quality over quantity. And we can help create a culture — imagine this — where our kids ask for healthy options instead of resisting them.“ Michelle Obama
  5. 5. WE HAVE 19 STUDENTS IN OUR CLASS. THERE IS A STUDENT WHO HAS THE FOLLOWING FOOD ALLERGY: HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP OR ANY CORN PRODUCT IF YOU HAVE A CHILD WITH FOOD ALLERGIES. PLEASE CONSIDER SENDING AN ALTERNATE SNACK FOR PARTIES. THE BOARD OF EDUCATION WELLNESS POLICY: Students will be discouraged from sharing their foods and/or beverages with one another during meal or snack times, given concerns with allergies and/or other restrictions on some children’s diets.

  10. 10. GRADE K OVERVIEW LANGUAGE ARTS CURRICULUM (Interpreted by Shari Jackson) For more details, please visit :http://www.corestandards.org/assets/CCSSI_ELA%20Standards.pdf Reading: Literature •Key Ideas and Details (character, setting, events, retelling) •Integration of Knowledge and Ideas (illustrations, compare and contrast familiar stories) •Craft and Structure (author, illustrator, unknown words, common types of texts such as stories or poems) •Range of Knowledge and Level of Text Complexity (engage in reading with purpose and understanding) Reading: Informational Text •Key Ideas and Details (answer questions, main idea, retell, connection) •Craft and Structure (unknown words, front cover, back cover, title page, author, illustrator) •Integration of Knowledge and Ideas (relationship between illustrations and text-person, place, thing, supportive information, compare two texts on the same topic) •Range of Knowledge and Level of Text Complexity (engage in reading with purpose and understanding) Reading: Foundational Skills •Print Concepts (top/bottom, left/right, page by page, concept of word, letter recognition) •Phonological Awareness (rhyme, syllables, onset and rime, isolate initial/medial/final consonants, substitute initial sounds) •Phonics and Word Recognition (primary consonant letter sounds, long and short vowels, high frequency words, differences and similarities in words) •Fluency (read emergent readers with purpose and understanding)
  11. 11. GRADE K OVERVIEW LANGUAGE ARTS CURRICULUM Writing: •Text Types and Purposes (write/draw: an opinion, an informative text and a narration including a reaction) •Production and Distribution of Writing (add details to strengthen writing, collaborate with peers to publish writing) •Research to Build and Present Knowledge (author study/express opinions, recall or gather information to answer a question) Speaking & Listening: •Comprehension and Collaboration (listen to others; take turns speaking through multiple exchanges; ask questions about key details, for clarification or to seek help; describe familiar people, places, things and events; add drawings to add detail; express thoughts, feelings and ideas clearly) Language: •Conventions of Standard English (print upper and lowercase letters, use frequently occurring nouns and verbs, add /s/ and /es/, use question words, use prepositions, use complete sentences, use and name punctuation, use capitalization such as in the word I or at the beginning of a sentence, write letters for short vowel sounds, spell phonetically) •Vocabulary Acquisition and Use (unknown word meanings; multiple meanings, use -ed, -s, re, un-, pre-, -ful, -less; sort/categorize common objects; verb antonyms; real life connections to words and their use – e.g. colorful things at school; describe and act out word meanings – walk, march, strut, prance; use new words learned through school experiences)
  12. 12. Research consistently finds phonological/phonemic awareness a key predictor of reading success. Created by: Mrs. Colwell McKinney-TX
  13. 13. Houghton Mifflin Alpahfriends
  14. 14. •Decoding symbols is just a part of reading. Reading is also deriving and constructing meaning. As we learn to read, we become more automatic and we begin to think more clearly about the meaning. Both decoding and comprehension are important. •You can build comprehension by encouraging your child to retell important story events from beginning, middle and end. Try to help you child to become more and more independent with this skill. •Please encourage your child to point to each word, as he/she reads. Tracking or one-to-one matching helps to eliminate the possibility of adding or deleting words. •Please help your child to notice and correct errors as he/she reads (Does that sound right?). •Please read with your child, every day, for 15 minutes. Books on tape/CD can be a great substitute for busy evenings. There has been a great deal of research regarding the power of reading with your child. This is the most important thing you can do.
  15. 15. From:http://finallyinfirst.blogspot.com/
  16. 16. READING COMPREHENISON As you read with your child, please consider asking a few of the following questions before during and after. These are questions that good readers begin to ask themselves. This verbal processing will strengthen comprehension. BEFORE: What do you think this story will be about? How do you know? Can you tell me what is happening in each picture? DURING: What do you think will happen next? Why do you think that? Why do you think the character did that? What would you do? Can you picture this part in your mind? Who are the characters in this story? What is the setting or main place where the story happens? AFTER: What did this book make you think about or remind you of (life experience/another book)? What was you favorite part of the book? Why? What was the problem in this story? How was the problem solved? Can you retell the story? How does the story begin? What happens in the middle? What happens at the end? What lesson did you learn from this book? How did this book make you feel? Did you like this book? Why? Why not?

  18. 18. •The first 12 words make up 25% of those we read and write. •The first 100 words make up 50% of those we read and write. •The first 300 words make up 75% of those we read and write.
  19. 19. Here are some fun ways to practice high frequency/sight words at home. These ideas and more can be found on http: //pinterest.com/
  20. 20. Each set of 6 is about 19.99 (levels 1-4 or A-D).
  21. 21. StoryTown “Program authors Dr. Isabel Beck and Dr. Margaret McKeown create a rich verbal environment through carefully selected words, student-friendly explanations, and meaningful learning activities.” Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
  22. 22. Characteristics of Texts at Level A:  Simple factual texts, animal fantasy and realistic fiction  Picture books  Text and concepts highly supported by pictures  One line of text on each page  Familiar, easy content  Repeating language patterns (3‐6 words per page)  Short, predictable sentences  Almost all vocabulary familiar to children – strongly sight‐word based Characteristics of Early Emergent Readers (Reading at Level A):  Just beginning to learn how print works  Just beginning to learn the alphabetic principle – the relationship between letters and sounds  Learning to use 1‐1 matching  Learning to follow text from left to right  Differentiating between print and pictures  Beginning to notice each letter’s distinct features  Learning some easy, high‐frequency words
  23. 23. Characteristics of Texts at Level B:  Simple factual texts, animal fantasy and realistic fiction  Simple, one‐dimensional characters  Picture books  Text and concepts highly supported by pictures  Two or more lines of text on each page  Repeating language patterns (3‐7 words per page)  Very familiar themes and ideas  Short, predictable sentences  Almost all vocabulary familiar to children – strongly sight‐word based Characteristics of Early Emergent Readers (Reading at Level B):  Recognize and apply repeating language patterns  Stronger awareness of left‐to‐right directionality  Stronger awareness of 1‐1 matching  Learning concept of return sweep (moving from one line of text to the next)  Able to distinguish and identify more letters according to their distinct features  Developing stronger understanding of the connection between sounds and letters  Expanding their core of easy, high‐frequency words
  24. 24. Characteristics of Texts at Level C:  Simple factual texts, animal fantasy and realistic fiction  Picture books  Amusing one‐dimensional characters  Familiar, easy content  Introduction of dialogue (assigned by said in most cases)  Many sentences with prepositional phrases and adjectives  Almost all vocabulary familiar to children – greater range of high‐frequency words  Some simple contractions and possessives (words with apostrophes)  Two to five lines of text on each page  Some bolded words  Some ellipses, commas, quotation marks, question marks, and exclamation points Characteristics of Early Emergent Readers (Reading at Level C):  Begin to move smoothly across the printed page when reading  Begin to use some expression when reading  Eyes are taking over the process of matching the spoken word to the printed word (removal of finger tracking)  Developing phrased reading  Noticing dialogue and punctuation and reflecting this with the voice  Developing a larger core of high‐frequency words  Consistently monitoring reading and cross‐checking one source of information against another; self‐correcting
  25. 25. Characteristics of Texts at Level D:  Simple factual texts, animal fantasy and realistic fiction  Picture books  Amusing one‐dimensional characters  Familiar, easy content, themes, and ideas  Simple dialogue (some split dialogue)  Many sentences with prepositional phrases and adjectives  Some longer sentences (some with more than six words)  Some simple contractions and possessives (words with apostrophes)  Two to six lines of text on each page  Some sentences turn over to the next line  Some words with –s and –ing endings  Fewer repetitive language patterns Characteristics of Early Emergent Readers (Reading at Level D):  Eyes can track print over two to six lines per page  Can process texts with fewer repeating language patterns  Voice‐print match is smooth and automatic; finger pointing is rarely needed, if ever  Notices and uses a range of punctuation and read dialogue, reflecting the meaning through phrasing  Can solve many regular two‐syllable words, usually with inflectional endings (‐ing).  Consistently monitors reading and cross‐checks one source of information against another; self corrects
