Welcome to Kindergarten!  We are excited to begin your child’s journey in school with you!  Kindergarten is a wonderful time of learning and discovery.  Kindergarteners come to school at varying stages of academic and social ability.  Our goal is that as a team (parents, child, and teacher) we ready your child for success by providing the academic, organization, and social support he/she needs to be successful through kindergarten and beyond.  The most amazing part of kindergarten is how quickly your child will develop into a learner.  Through play, cooperative work, guided instruction, and technology your child will practice and learn many new skills.   By the end of the year your child will be a reader, a writer, a mathematician, and a budding scientist.  We are so excited to work together with you and your child this year!

October 2021 News

A successful month has come and gone in kindergarten! As we see the season change from summer to fall, we are also seeing many changes in our Kindergarteners. Please take the time to sit down with your child and complete the nightly reading homework. As we continue through kindergarten, you will see a variety of homework including practicing letter sounds and letter formation. The foldable take home books and those of your choice will reinforce your kindergarten’s literacy skills.

While we are having lots of fun in reading, math has been moving along smoothly as well. We have been working on sorting and classifying objects and learning our numbers 0 to 10.

As your student continues to grow and learn this year, please continue to work with him/her at home. Tying shoes and zipping jackets/coats are two skills we would appreciate you working on at home. Students are doing an outstanding job but continuing to practice these skills will only make them more efficient.

We will be holding parent/teacher Conferences this October please keep an eye on your child’s Ware Bear folder and Class Dojo for more information.
