What's happening in kindergarten?
Welcome to my kindergarten class! We are going to learn a lot this year and have so much fun! Here are a few upcoming dates to be aware of:
September 5: Kindergarten Meet and Greet, Please bring school supplies.
September 6: First day of School!
September 12: Back to School Night
September 19: School is Closed
Welcome to kindergarten! We're so excited to watch our school's youngest learners blossom as the year unfolds. Wait until you see the changes in the students' reading, writing, and math skills between now and June. Not only will they make academic progress, but they will become part of our Clara Barton School community and make some wonderful new friends.
In September, the kindergarten students will spend time becoming familiar with classroom routines and establishing rules. Daily morning meetings will encourage them to become better acquainted with one another, as will our "All About Me" theme during the first couple weeks of school. Students will launch their reading and writing workshops, during which they will have opportunities to observe, practice, and share their learning about reading and writing. During science time, the students will investigate the season of fall and begin to learn about the five senses. Math lessons will incorporate the numbers 0-9 forwards and backwards, sorting, and patterning.
Please check back at the end of each month for a recap of the previous weeks' learning as well as a preview of what is to come in the next month. We're so happy to welcome your young learners to kindergarten!
The Kindergarten Teachers
My Teaching Philosophy
My fundamental goal of teaching is to foster a love of learning in each child that crosses my path. I achieve this goal by targeting the specific learning styles of my students and creating fun and enriching activities that meet our daily objectives. I also believe that my students thrive in a nurturing and compassionate environment. We work hard to build our classroom into a community of learners who care deeply for one another. Successful teachers form a partnership with parents, and it is my goal to work together to provide each of my students the most successful kindergarten year possible. If I could instill just one value to my students it would be that learning never ends! My students see how much we all learn, including me, each day. Through these daily experiences they learn to become life-long learners! Teaching is my passion and I believe you should be passionate about the things you love most!
