This is an exciting time in your kindergartener’s life. They have been learning how to be a part of a learning community socially and academically and have developed a solid foundation of literacy and numeracy to build upon. This exciting time of year in our “kindergarten world” is referred to as Kindergarten Part 2. We encourage students to be more independent with their daily responsibilities such as following routines, independently using self-help skills such as trying things themselves before asking for help, and doing their work more independently such as applying their letter sounds knowledge or using the word-wall to find a word they can’t spell without prompting. Please join us in this exciting time of kindergarten as we look to build independent and resourceful individuals.
