Together we are going to learn new things, make new friends, and open a whole new world! I hope to instill a love for learning and exploring in the hearts of our Kindergarten students throughout the year! 


Hello Parents and Friends!
I miss all of you! 
I have posted some links for students to use during this extended time away. Please continue to practice counting 0-100, identifying and writing numbers 0-20, and recognizing the coins and their values. In reading please continue to practice reading and writing sight words, stretching out words while reading and writing, using spaces when writing sentences, and retelling a story in sequence. Please stay tuned for any additional resources! Please feel free to email me at carusojd@pwcs.edu if you have any questions or just to say hi!  

Hola Padres y Amiogos!
Les extrano mucho a todos!
He publicado algunas paginas de internet para que los estudiantes los usen durante este tiempo que no podemos estar juntos. Por favor, continúe practicando a contar 0-100, identificando y escribiendo números 0-20, y reconociendo las monedas y sus valores. En lectura, continúe leyendo y escribiendo palabras de uso frequente, estirando palabras mientras lee y escribe, usa espacios al escribir oraciones y vuelve a contar una historia en secuencia. Por favor, manténgase atento para cualquier recurso adicional!
Por favor no duden en mandarme un correo electronico a carusojd@pwcs.edu si tienen alguna pregunta o simplemente para decir hola!
