The children are busy preparing to share a piece of kindergarten with you!
Your child will be your host for the evening. They are the expert in their field- kindergarten!
We will begin with a tour of the classroom and Studio. The children will explain to you what happens in each of these areas and their favorite things to do!
We will share some of our literacy work with you- the children are choosing work that they are excited to show you or teach you about. They have chosen a story from their Writer’s Workshop folders to read to you.
They will teach you one of our favorite math games! They will be sure to show you how it’s done in kindergarten, including how to win and lose!
They will share some information about light and share with you how they have been showing their learning!
They will show patience and perseverance as you attempt Jacob’s Ladder, following your child’s directions each step of the way!
We can’t wait to share kindergarten with you! Your child will bring home any materials needed on the day.
Be eager to learn something – and acknowledge your child as the teacher for the evening. Be positive and appreciative; this is not the right time for correcting and pointing out mistakes.
A little note about writing in kindergarten:
At the end of this first month of Writer’s Workshop, writing takes many forms. The most important element of writing is drawing a detailed picture. A detailed picture serves as a foundation for building a story. Writing can be an illustration.
If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so here. This helps us have an idea of who is attending which session and what pieces to have ready.
