I look forward to a wonderful year with my kindergarten students! It is my goal to provide your child with a warm, nurturing environment that enables him/her to be successful both academically and socially this year. We are going to be very busy learning about classroom procedures, reading exciting stories, exploring new math concepts and making new friends!
The students attend the following specials each week:
Monday: Physical Education (Mr. Peterson) -don't forget your sneakers
Tuesday: Media (Mrs. Pedalino) -don't forget your books
Wednesday: Computers (Mr. Cashen)
Thursday: Art (Mrs. Borbas) & World Language (Mrs. Gibbs)
Friday: Music (Mr. Pomel)
Daily Homework: The children will have homework every Monday through Thursday. The homework will alternate between a review of math and language arts concepts. Online access to both the enVisions math series and Superkids language arts series is available. Passwords will be provided for at-home access. Please see the related links on this page.
Monthly Homework: Once per month, "family" homework will be given. This is usually a fun arts and craft project. Projects are simple and can be completed with the art supplies you already have at home.
Memory Word Homework: Every Tuesday, a new word will be introduced and memorized. These are words that children encounter frequently in reading. We practice these words in class. Have your child look for these words in books that you read together, on signs that you see outside or in stores. They will feel great to be able to read them to you!
I will add words to this list as they are introduced in class:
Leap Into Reading
Read to or with your child every night for 20 minutes.
