This Week in Kindergarten
Next week, students will be assessed in the area of book handling skills, identifying the parts of a book (front cover, back cover, title, page, where to start reading, and the roles of author/illustrators). Also, they must be able to match a number to a set in a picture. Please go over these skills with your child at home. Thank you for your continued support.
Lunch in the Cafeteria
Over the past several days, Dr. Gee, our principal, has noticed a large number of kindergarten parents eating lunch with their children. Although he fully supports parent access and encourages you to spend time with your child, he has asked that our kindergarten parents start to lessen the number of times they visit during lunch. Children need time to interact socially with their peer group and they cannot do this if they are eating with their parents. He suggests limiting visits to no more than once per month so it becomes a special time for you and your child. Thank you for your consideration.
Art Corner News from Ms. Brodnax
This month in Kindergarten your students are working on building up the basic skills and vocabulary they need to be an artist. We are learning how to use one of the most important elements in art – line! Ask your students about the different between an organic and a geometric line.
