Welcome to Kinder
garten!!


As you know, Bedford County Public Schools will be closed the remainder of the school year. While your child is at home, the following activities would be helpful but not required to continue their academic growth in kindergarten. Please continue to send pictures and messages from the children.  I hope to see everyone soon!

I will be placing lots of books under your child's name so he/she can choose topics or characters that interest him/her.  

Accelerated Reader (AR) https://www.arbookfind.com/default.aspx?client=HomeConnect **Keep a list of AR books your child reads so they can test and earn points when we return to school! At this time, there is no test access from home.



Brainpop Jr. https://jr.brainpop.com/ This site provides free at home use during our closure. I am working to add everyone in our class on the roster and will provide the access as soon as possible.



Super Kids Online
  • Login to your account. Students have their own password (picture) they use in class each week. You can access it by going to the FES webpage link listed above in red ink.
  • We just completed Bb and Rr. The letters Mm and Pp will be next. Most of the students know all of the individual letter sounds. We have also practiced ch, sh and th which can be a challenge for us.
  • There is a READ tab at the bottom of the screen.  This tab will take your child to leveled readers.  The easy readers are at the beginning of the selection.  The first books listed are wordless ones.  The remaining books begin with the easy readers which have one sentence on each page.  The books progress to on level and challenge ones.  These are excellent readers to practice your child's decoding skills using the letter sounds he/she has acquired this year.
