Each day, your child will work with math, writing, and reading. Each day we will discuss items on our CAFÉ board. Café stands for: Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expand Vocabulary. Together we will work on strategies from those ideas. Each week, I will post a newsletter on my classroom site: http://kinderpond.blogspot.com/ of the strategies we worked on during the week. Please let me know if you do not have access to the Internet and I will make you a copy of the newsletter and send it home with your child.
We will be working in small groups to give the students the most individual instruction to meet their individual needs.
We added one strategy to our CAFE menu:
Check for Understanding is the very first one we talked about.

We rounded off the corners and then gave them light and dark green and red squares.
We made a watermelon graph. I made green colored copies for watermelons. Those are supposed to be vines (the yarn.) Only one child didn't like watermelon!
I made some salt paint of different colors and put them in ketchup and mustard bottles. They took forever to dry. Make sure that the lids are on tight. After using them for the activities, one of lids was loose and one of my students was using it and it blobbed out- so I said it should be a green bush lol
