Happy Friday, Kindergarten Family =)
This is our class news page. Every Friday I will add a new post telling you what we did during the week, and what will be coming up. I try to always leave a link in my reminder email to come check this page out. I hope you find it helpful.
We have had a great and busy week! I am sure you have noticed that your child may be a little drained each day. They are asking for naps, and they constantly ask when school will be out (we are having too much fun), but I promise they will soon build the stamina. With that said, I want to communicate to all of you that we spend the first six weeks in kindergarten building our classroom community, getting to know our rules and routines, making friends, and building stamina in each subject area. This is such an important time because once this is established, it is so easy to hit the ground running. We are able to simply move forward because they know what is expected of them, and we have a safe, loving classroom that they will not be afraid to take chances in. Please know that we are also learning during this time. I am building stamina each day in reading, writing, and math. I am also getting to know them as learners. Science and social studies don't require much stamina building because those are the more fun subjects for most of the kids, but we will also be tapping into them.
Thank you so much for having your child bring in their share bag. These bags are helping us get to know each other. We only get to a few each day, and I return them to the kids that have already had a turn. They will take us until next Friday to finish. I hope your little one is not too sad without his or her prized possessions. Please let me know if this is the case.
Please also return the information packets this coming Monday. I am getting to know your children so well, but it is also important for me to know more about them from you.
Please remember that I am always here for all of you. Thank you for always supporting us and helping us make this the best year in kindergarten!
