Share Time

Share Time for September is a “Summer Memory”. Your child may bring in a summer memory item on their assigned day. It must fit into their bookbag and be something that they can talk about. Some ideas- a picture, brochure, or postcard about something you did over the summer.

 

Family Activities

 

In Kindergarten we are learning many new things. You can help your child at home by working on the following things. Remember that you can have fun while your learn!

 

  1. Practice writing your name with capital and lowercase letters, on the line.
  2. Practice cutting carefully. Find pictures in a magazine and cut them out.
  3. Do you know how to tie your shoes? Practice, practice, practice! Even if you know how!
  4. Do you know your full name, address, phone number, and parents’ names? It would be helpful in an emergency.
  5. Color slowly and carefully. Choose your colors. Coloring with many different colors is more exciting to look at!
  6. Sort something–anything– and explain your ‘rule”.
  7. Patterns are everywhere! Can you spot some? Can you make some? Use anything you’ve got and you can create a pattern!
  8. Remember to READ! READ! READ!
