Welcome to Kindergarten

Hi-  We are settling in nicely to Kindergaten.  I am ejoying getting to know your kiddos.  We spend a lot of time in September setting up routines and getting to each other, so that our year will run smoothly. :)  One of my favorite ways to get to know each student is to do a "Star of the Day" activity.  Every student gets a chance to be a star.  We count the letters in our stars name, clap out the letters in their name,  and mix up the letters (and the we have to put them back the right way) . We have 3 friends tell us why our star student is a Peacebuilder- (and I write that on the cover of their book), and finally, every student draws a picture of the Star.  Then we put the pictures together in a book for that special student to take home and share with his/her family! So, be on the lookout for that book. Since, we only do one star a day, it does take a while for every student to be the star,  but it is worth the wait! 

    A couple of upcoming date: September 6th- Patriot Spirit Day- wear you Patriots colors/clothes
