Welcome to Kindergarten! We've had a great start to our year together. I hope that you'll find the information posted here useful.
Our "special" class schedule is as follows:
Monday--Music and Technology
Tuesday--Library and Music
Thursday---Art and Gym
We also get outside for play most days, so it is extremely helpful if the children have shoes and appropriate clothing for outdoor play. Sneakers are great! Flip flops, on the other hand, are not so great for school. Children will at times have homework that you may complete together as a family. We also will be participating in Scholastic Book Clubs, where you'll have the chance to purchase great books at a little price. This helps us stock up on books for our classroom and fill your family book shelves, too. Participation in these book orders are optional.
Daily Schedules: We fit in a morning meeting, small group reading times, and "specials" before lunch. After lunch, our time is devoted to math, writing, and thematic learning experiences (where we fit in our science and social studies components). Oh, and snack and recess! I'm sure your child talks a lot about their two favorite parts of the day!
I look forward to working with you this year. Don't hesitate to email me or call me at school. We'll work together to help your child meet their early childhood goals.
