Back to School Night, Ee and Ff, and Cars....

Quick notes to you before I close up my computer...


We're doing back to school night on Thursday. Be sure to come. I'll go over the kindergarten program for 2009-2010 and hand out some materials for home support of our math and reading programs.



As your child why the King and Queen didn't get along on the day they made E and e.



Ditto for the letters F and f. Why didn't they get along?



Finally, it appears we're playing a bit too roughly with the cars, so they'll be put away for a while.

Do the King and Queen refer to uppercase and lowercase letters respectively?

Lynola, Yes. In my story, the King of English invents the upper case letters and the Queen the lower case letter. KIndergartners instantly "get it" and understand why the two forms look alike when the K & Q get along (Oo, Cc, Vv) and why they look different when they don't (Rr, etc.)
