Welcome to Kindergarten
I am so excited to have you in my kindergarten class this year! You will learn so many interesting and exciting things.Kindergarten is an incredible time of growth! The social, emotional, and academic growth that takes place is phenomenal!Your child will also attend encore classes each day (art, music, P.E. and library.) We will go to the computer lab once a week to learn how to navigate many educational web sites as well as learn the basics of creating our own story (illustration and typing practice.) We will also have Mandarin Chinese instruction twice a week.
Your child will make new friends and learn the art of cooperation and collaboration through literacy centers, math centers and lots of Kagan structures.
This will be an amazing year!
Phonics "Let's Read" Folders will be sent home on Parent Academy Night. The first poem is included in the folder. Every Monday, students will bring a new poem home to be placed in the folder after working with it 3-4 times over the course of the week (10 min. max each night.) Folders will be collected every quarter for evaluation.
Handwriting Homework will start the third week in September. The practice page will be sent home on Tuesday's and due on Friday's.
Math Enrichment pages will be sent home at the beginning of the month. You have until the end of the month to complete the activities. Your child only needs to hand in the colored page, but is welcome to hand in the individual activities as well.
TRRFCC Reader Homework will be sent home at the beginning of the month. Please have your child color, or place a sticker on each book as you read together nightly. This is due at the end of the month as well.
