Day 2

Another great day in kindergarten.   We are learning each other's names and the rules of our classroom, playground and hallway.  We had lessons on learning to listen.  Our class knows that we can show we are listening with eyes watching, ears listening, voices quiet, and body still.  Today we had our first Physical Education class with Mr. Godfrey.

First Day of Kindergarten

What a great first day we had in kindergarten!  Our class read books, played several games and learned yoga poses.  We also played with playdough, colored, put puzzles together, and explored items on our science and nature table.  Students learned how to safely use playground equipment.  They enjoyed the opportunity to practice.  Other highlights of our day included meeting new friends, lunch in the cafeteria and music with Mr. Arthur.

Welcome to RES Kindergarten

       Hello Families!  Welcome to kindergarten and our classroom blog.  Throughout the school year we will share what is happening in our classroom on this blog.  Families will get a chance to see students working cooperatively, making discoveries, and sharing their learning. 
       As you can see from the pictures below I have been busy getting our classroom ready for school to start.  I am so excited to meet everyone!  I have started putting out our books, writing materials, and centers.  The bulletin board backgrounds are up and waiting for student work. 
       I look forward to talking with kindergarten parents and guardians during our evening orientation on Tuesday, August 20.  On the morning of Wednesday, August 21 I will meet and greet kindergarten students in our classroom.  Children and adults can check out our room and visit with each other.
