A kindergarten student transferred into my class at the beginning of Feb. from another school in the district. He knew 37 letters and 7 sounds which is about the same as he knew in Oct. according to a district wide assessment that he took. Since then we have worked with him every day to learn the letters and sounds but I assessed him today and he now knows fewer letters but about 5 more sounds.
