Kindergarten is where students learn to cross that bridge from home, daycare or preschool to first grade. It's a year where children change and grow into beginning readers and writers and so much more! I guess when you find something that you love doing, you stick with it as I've always taught kindergarten. It's very rewarding to build relationships, be involved in a child's learning and to see them grow so much within a school year.
Each new year is exciting for kindergartners at Sun Path! We will explore important concepts throughout the year in the classroom as well as taking part in specialist classes such as media, art, music and gym.
My expectation for my class is simple: I want kindergartners to enjoy school! The purpose of the kindergarten year is to provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences to help prepare children to become confident learners and successful in first grade. My responsibility is to make sure each child views school as a safe, positive and fun place to learn about the world and each other.
