We are so excited to introduce full day kindergarten to all kinder kids this year!! This is such an exciting time in your child’s life! We learn so much in kindergarten! We will be learning letters, letter sounds, segmenting, and blending. We put these skills together to become fabulous readers. In math we count out loud to 110, learn fact fluency in addition and subtraction to 5, and begin higher order thinking on real world problems.
Along with all of our academics, we will attend music, PE, art, and library once a week. We incorporate reading switch into our classrooms on a daily basis. During this time your child will be working in a small group with other learners at the same level.
In kindergarten we love to write. Beginning with our name and extending into narrative, opinion, and "how to" writing, your student will be focusing on the skills necessary to be successful in the following years.
We welcome parent help in the classroom! Please join us for our classroom parties at Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day. At the end of the school year we look forward to seeing you at our kindergarten graduation/music program which takes place the last week of school!
The connection between home and school is imperative to your child's success. The most important thing you can do with your child is read together everyday! We will keep you updated on weekly skills that you can practice at home. You will be amazed at the growth your student will show this year.
Your kindergarten teachers,
