What We Are Learning

We will be talking about going to Kindergarten and practicing routines to help with the transition in September.  These routines include:

  • Lining up with the class and walking upstairs to the classroom (without families) upon arrival
  • Eating lunch in the cafeteria
  • Visiting the kindergarten classrooms in our school as well as the gym, art, science and music room
  • Following multi-step directions for different tasks
  • Completing classwork and homework assignments

Home Connections

During the next four weeks, we will be sending home a homework packet each Monday, which will contain one worksheet for your child to complete each day that week and should be returned the following Monday.  We highly suggest you create a homework routine at home (ex: same time of day, a clean workspace with little or no distractions, supplies such as pencils and markers, time to work independently and a time to ask for help).
