Kindergarten

Mrs. Wilson's kindergarten class 2020-2021

Our schedule is:

Everyday live Zoom meetings with the teacher, providing instruction in reading, writing, math, and the English language. We meet daily at 9AM, break from 10:30-11, then from 11-12:00, break for lunch, and our last meeting is 12:45-1:30. On Wednesdays only we have no break and go from 11-12:45 PM.


To get on Zoom, your child goes to the Zoom app. Links have been sent to all parents on Google Classroom and to all students' gmail accounts. Kids can also get into the Zoom meetings with the class Zoom ID, which is printed on their work folder.


If your child has completed the assigned work, have them work in their "Quiet Books" to practice the ABCs, writing numbers, and printing their names accurately.



Your kinder has a learning PACKET, a new one every three weeks. The next pick-up date is Wednesday, September 23, from 1-4 PM, at room 3. Please wear a mask and keep at least 6' between yourself and others. We are practicing social distancing at all times.

We are NOT collecting your child's completed work, so we do not spread germs. I recommend you do not tell your child this, and you recycle the completed work without your child's knowledge.

It's OK to go to YouTube for learning videos. There are some links below. I like all videos by Have Fun Teaching, Harry Kindergarten, and Miss Molly. To help in your search, put in "Harry Kindergarten count to 100" or "Miss Molly Sight Words". Use ABCs, Count by 10s, count to 100, sight word____, . These will help weed out the inappropriate videos. Do not let your child search without you. The links below are all good.

Here's the Daily Schedule:
