Welcome to our first month of kindergarten! During the month of September, our Unit of Study focuses on Building Community. The kindergartners will discuss how learning together helps us as a classroom community of learners, as a school community and in our lives. They will also discover and practice how to grow into a respectful, responsible, independent learner, and how to grow into a contributing member in the global society.
We begin the month with a look a colors. We will have fun discovering together that letters make sounds and that sounds make words. We will begin looking at concepts of print which will help us become better readers and writers. We will learn how to use the tools that will help us learn while we practice and develop our small motor skills. Using a pencil and scissors are tricky. Practice at home helps strengthen this skill.
Finally, the kindergartners will have fun getting to know their new friends. What a busy month!
