Kindergarten students will learn to recognize letters, using phonics to learn sounds of words. They learn to sound out words by sounding out the letters in each syllable. They learn to recognize and write letters, being able to write their names by the time they leave Kindergarten. Students learn listening skills by hearing stories read to them and analyzing the stories by answering questions about them. They retell the story by drawing pictures that are associated with the stories.

Chalk Talk: Planning a Successful Parent/Teacher Conference
When planning a parent/teachers conference, teachers need to remember why they are scheduling the conference. The purpose of a parent/teacher conference is to communicate with parents about the progress of the students. Perform some strategic planning at the beginning of the school year. Teachers need to make sure that they take the time to get to know each student. Keep good written logs about students and their progress, or problems the y are encountering. If teachers keep the parents involved throughout the school year, the conference will run much more smoothly. Teachers also need to tell parents if their child is having a problem in any area. It is up to the teacher to encourage parental involvement in the problem and its solution. Teachers need to keep the meetings going on a positive note and give praise for good work.
