• Hello! 
    Welcome To Mrs. Montoya's Kindergarten Classroom!

    Please check in daily (Monday-Friday) for updates on what to work on while we take a break from meeting in class.
     If you need to contact me for any reason, please email me at jmontoya@peekskillschools.org
    Your child has access to RAZ kids. Login cards have been sent several times over the school year and last week. Please contact me if you cannot locate your child's login information. Have your child read for 20 minutes each day. 
    Zearn is a math program that your child uses to reinforce math concepts we learn in class. Your child can access this at home too. Login cards were sent home, if you cannot locate this information, please email me so I can provide you with this information as soon as possible. 
    Please visit my "Interesting Web Pages" for a list of resources to use this week. You can find Zearn and Raz kids links there as well. 

     ☀️ Morning Message 4/6/20🌞 



    Good Morning Friends!  

    I hope you had a wonderful weekend and an opporuntity to get outdoors for a little bit. Please be sure to check my teacher page every day this week!  I have a surprise planned for you, it's just not quite ready. So keep checking back.

     I am proud of you because I checked Raz kids and saw that a good number of friends were reading this past week. If you were able to get on RAZ from 3/29/20- 4/5/20 you were rewarded with 100 stars on Raz kids! If you did not get a chance, show me how much you can read this week and I will award some more! I promise! 

    **FYI: This Friday 4/10/20 will be a Non-Instructional day of school - therefore no work will be added to the website that day **

    COOL THING TO TRY! If mom or dad has a smart phone - GOOGLE "Panda" or any other animal. Just underneath the image search results and the Wikipeida description of the panda, you'll see a little box that says "Meet a lifesize giant panda up close". Click the "view in 3D" button and then click "view in your space" to see the panda in your own surroundings (such as your living room or kitchen)! **So far this feature only works on a smart phone** HAVE FUN!
