Week 1

Kinder Families,

As we get ready to wrap up the second day of school, I want to tell you all how AWESOME your children are. It can be incredibly scary and challenging going to school for a full day. They are catching on quickly and loving it!

A few of the things we are focusing on this week, are classroom rules and why they are important. Examples are raising their hand (and waiting to be called on) to speak and walking silently in the hallway with our hands down. These are sometimes very unfamiliar to kinders, so any extra reminders at home is EXTREMELY appreciated.

They have also already been able to enjoy Spanish, Science, P.E. and Music. Wednesday they get computers and Friday they get keyboarding (yes, the instrument)!

PLEASE CHECK YOUR CHILD'S BACKPACK!

Some of you will find orange (info sheet) and blue (volunteer) papers in your child's backpack. Please complete these and return them to me by Friday. I hope to have a volunteer schedule finalized by the 3rd week of school!

Thanks for everything!

WELCOME!!

HELLO FAMILIES!!

Parents, please read this to your kindergartner:

I want to welcome you all to KINDERGARTEN! This year is going to be full of firsts for you. We will jump right in, learning letter names and sounds. We will perfect writing each of those letters and begin making words on our own. In math, we will focus on numbers 0-10, using toys and cubes to count, games and practice recognizing/writing the numbers.

Most important, you will meet lots of new friends and teachers. You will get to have science, computers, P.E. and music. You will have lunch with the first graders and have something we call recess...this is when you get to play outside! I know, sounds fun right?!?!

Make sure to get a GREAT night sleep and come ready to learn!

From, Mrs. Korn


PARENTS, here are a few reminders for that first day:

  • Please get your child to bed by 8:00pm on Sunday night. This will help them be well rested for a busy first week.
  • Remember to write your child's name on their backpack, lunchbox, towel and any jackets or sweatshirts.
  • Pack your child a healthy lunch and a small snack.
  • Please subscribe to this blog by entering your email. I communicate by posting updates here and through email. I very rarely make home phone calls.
  • FINALLY, PLEASE HAVE EXTRA PATIENCE WITH YOUR CHILD. They may not be used to having such a busy day and might be a little tired/cranky when they get home. Feeding them healthy food and getting them to bed early will help lower the chance of these behaviors.
