As the end of the school year nears I want to share a resource that may be of help for incoming kindergarteners. It is a list of skills that will make their transition into school easier. This is not a comprehensive list of skills or mandatory skills to know, but mastering them will make your child’s transition into school easier.
This year we are using interactive notebooks for Science and Social Studies. These are kept in the classroom and added to throughout the school year. While you won’t see work coming home from these subjects frequently ask your student what they have been working on as they are always excited to add more into their notebooks.
We are learning about light and sound.
We will be learning about landforms. We will read a variety books, use video resources, and discuss landforms around us to expand their knowledge on the subject.
We always say that we work in the most beautiful true and it’s confirmed every morning when I drive into town. I don’t think anyone could ask for a better view from their classroom windows!
I graduated from Central Washington University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and an additional endorsement in reading. I came to work in Index in January of 2006. I began teaching preschool and kindergarten in the mornings and various subjects to the second through eighth grades in the afternoons. After two years I added first grade to the class as well.
