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
