Kindergarten News

We hope everyone has had a FANTASTIC break! It has been wonderful to relax, recharge, unplug and catch up a little, especially on sleep! we look forward to starting a new year with each of you. 

 

Back in September, kindergarteners worked on “readiness” skills like “concepts of print,” (the way books and writing work), as well as letters, sounds, rhymes, and some early sight words. In math, students spent the fall on fundamental concepts like the meaning of numbers, their sequence, and what’s bigger, smaller, or equal. Some kids breezed through, but for some, it wasn’t always easy. Some kids may have taken as long as two months—until Halloween—just to feel comfortable in the setting.

 

But now, in the latter half of the kindergarten year, all those “readiness skills” are starting to pay off. Virtually all children have settled into their daily routines, and they are proud to enter into class, help one another during work times, and sit for rug-time. They can see their progress with letters and numbers, and they’re ready to go deeper. In fact, the weeks from January to March are often so settled and productive that teachers call this the “sweet spot” of the year. Classes are starting to work as communities, and everyone benefits.

 

We would love to have you come volunteer in the classroom or in our PTA.  Whether that means you can volunteer once a week, once a month or twice a year, we would love to see you and get to know you.  When your children see you value education, they learn to value it too.

Please ask us questions anytime, we are here to be of help.  :))
