Heidi Fortney

Hi! My name is Mrs. Heidi Fortney, welcome to my Kindergarten webpage! This is the place where I will keep you informed on what's happening in my classroom at Mohawk Elementary School. I will have lesson plans, newsletters, homework and pics updated weekly for you. Please check back soon for information for the 2019-2020 school year! I have also made a Facebook page with my husband called: Mr. & Mrs. Fortney's Mohawk Kindergarten to keep you informed. Please like and follow!

Lesson Plans: May 4th through May 20th:

=        Please have your child work daily (Monday-Friday) in their spiraled Home Learning Packet. There is a check off sheet included to keep track of their progress. This will be until the end of the year and you will have some leftover pages to use for summer review.  

=        Please have your child login and practice in i-Ready for 45 minutes a week in both Reading and Math. Please have them stay under 90 minutes and try their best to pass 4 lessons a week in each.

=        Please have your child read every single day for at least 10 minutes. This can be to you from any book of choice or through the app/website Kids A-Z (also known as RAZ-Kids). You can also read to them or have someone in the family read to them.

=        Please have your child do some sort of sight word review practice daily with the lists they have mastered and fold in new words from the next list. The lists are in their binders or can be found on the HUB (Link: https://bit.ly/38UEJPB ) as well as flashcards if needed. Our expectation is to have them all master all 80 Kindergarten words by the last day and retained over the summer to be ready for first grade!

=        May journals are included in the Home Learning Packet. We will put additional entries on the HUB if you’d like to do more.

=        At this time, we didn’t include any “work” for Science and Social Studies. See notes in e-mail update on 5.5.20 for ideas and resources. Please share a picture of your child dressed up in what they want to be when they grow up by Friday, May 15th.

=        Continue working on WIGS and PIGS- share with us so we can help celebrate them!
