Classroom to Home Connections

The partnership between parents and teachers is an essential part of a child's education.  Try any of the following activities to extend your kindergartner's learning beyond the classroom. 

Reading ~ Read a story each night as part of a bedtime routine.  Talk about illustrations and story events that spark your child's interest.
Math ~ Post a monthly calendar on your refrigerator. Discuss the date and upcoming important events. Discover triangles, circles, rectangles, and squares in everyday items.  During play time create patterns with colored blocks and other toys.
Science ~ Encourage your child to use his/her five senses (taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight) to make discoveries about new foods at dinner time.
Social Studies ~  Spend time in our community.  Visit the library.  Learn the location of our volunteer fire department or police department.  Work with your child to learn the words to the Pledge of Allegiance.T


Please check your child's "daily folder" nightly for any notes or important information that has been sent home by your child's teacher. 

Please also check the orange Monday folder for  any important notices from the office.
