-Wed, Apr25 and Thurs, Apr26 – Letters/letter sounds final test. I will be sitting with your child, one last time to complete their final scores. PLEASE, PLEASE review letters/sounds with your child so that your child can score high on their final test. Wouldn’t it be AWESOME if all 16 of my kids were able to recognize all 26 capital letters and 26 lowercase letters?! Hehe, I am sure we can do it with a little help from our parents. The letters that are often confused are q,g,j,b,d. The scores from this testing will be submitted to kindergarten/Young 5 teachers.
