Wheaton PreK Students Spend Time in Kindergarten

Mrs. Nelson's class at Chesterbrook Academy Elementary School welcomed some new friends to their classroom for fun learning activities. Future kindergarten students paired up with current kinder students to make a book about patterns! It was wonderful seeing all the children work together.

Letter from Mrs. Nelson


My name is Mrs. Nelson. I have been the kindergarten teacher here at Chesterbrook Academy Elementary for the last fifteen years. I was so happy to meet your child today. I hope that they were able to share a bit about the visit. My class enjoyed showing off a bit of their day, too!

It won’t be long before your child joins us on their kindergarten journey. Kindergarten is a busy, busy time, filled with many hands on learning experiences. I love guiding the children through them all! I have some wonderful projects planned. We will learn about our location in the United States by collecting leaves from all over the country, create our own business {consumers and producers will be added to your child’s vocabulary}, learn about the farm system {grass to milk}, and even create a windmill. Of course, the children will read, write, add, subtract, perform science experiments, and learn some history… but these skills will be developed through many learning activities designed to make their education engaging. I will keep those little minds active!

Please take a moment to visit my website located on our school’s web page. You can get a glimpse into our day! Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

And, as always, thank you for sharing your children with me.

Mrs. Nelson
