Kindergarten

 

I’m very excited to be your child’s teacher and I look forward to getting to know you and your child. Our new Kindergarten class is off to a great start! The children have been adjusting to our daily routine and tasks that are expected in Kindergarten. Some of these tasks include the following: holding pencils correctly, turning pages of their books and finding the correct page, writing their names on all their papers, following directions, etc. Many of these tasks we take for granted, but in Kindergarten it does take effort from the children.

Kindergarten is an exciting and important year. Your child will be learning Reading and Math skills that will provide the basis for future skill development. The children will also show tremendous growth this year not only academically, but socially, spiritually, and emotionally.

September 2020

Welcome Back to School!! September is a transition month for all classes.  We have been training and planning for months but implementing a new educational model is always challenging.  The hybrid plan we have adapted provides the best opportunity for children to be present in school.  It also is a tremendous amount of work for teachers, planning for (3) different groups of students.  We cannot answer emails during school class time so we give the students in school the attention they deserve.  Cycling all the special classes is also a challenge so class schedules will take some time to perfect.  Parents, please make every effort to have your children attend virtual classes on time and behave in a manner appropriate for school.  It is very disruptive when a student is distracting other children during an on line teaching experience. 

 

Every effort is being put into the best way to reach each student whether they are in class or not.  Your patience and understanding is appreciated and we are confident with everyone working together, only great things will happen!

The Kindergarten classroom is an exciting place to be. It is a place where children grow spiritually, academically, socially and find that learning is fun.

We have a strong academic program in Kindergarten. Reading, Phonics, Writing and Language take up a big part of our day. The children also have a daily Math and Religion lesson. In addition to our daily lessons, the students will be exposed to Science and Social Studies. We won't forget many special and fun activities throughout the year.  Thanksgiving Feast, Gingerbread Man Unit, Christmas Pageant and Hatching chicks from eggs are just a few of the special times for the Kindergarten class.

Children that are ready for more challenging work are advanced and those that need a little extra help are given individual instruction.

Kindergarten students will also take part in our special subjects.  During the week, the class will participate in Art, Spanish, Physical Education, Computer, Music and Library Class.

This is an important time in a young child's life. We want to provide a secure and happy environment that will promote a love of learning and a classroom where each child will succeed and be proud of their accomplishments.
