KINDERGARTEN CLASS UPDATE – By: Antonio Rodriguez & Andrea Figueroa


Over the course of the year, Kindergarten has learned and practiced their letters of the alphabet. Last week, the students finished understanding the alphabet, the different sounds each letter can make, and the correct way to write them. The elementary students decorated letters while simultaneously pronouncing the different long sounds and short sounds of each vowel and consonant. Each form of learning was educational, but remained entertaining in order for the students to stay involved. Now that the children of Kindergarten have mastered their letters, they are one step closer to being prepared for the first grade!
