Classroom Updates

September 28, 2020

Dear Families,

We are coming to the end of our first week of kindergarten. It is such a joy to begin the day, looking out at all the smiles. The small group work time has been a delight, too. The children are mostly working parallel at this point but are slowly starting to open up and converse.

Next week, we will start some beginning math and language activities. We will begin the weekly check-ins. And, we are looking forward to art at 11:00 on Wednesday and Friday. You will receive more information from our art teachers soon.

In past years, we have invited parents to bring one of their child’s favorite books into the classroom to read to the children. We would like to carry this tradition into our virtual gatherings. If you and your child would want to share a book in this way, let Kristin and me know and we’ll schedule it.

We can be reached by email and the kindergarten zoom link. This week, we had a problem with the waiting room feature display and some break out room issues. We hope the glitches are worked out.

Kristin and I appreciate all your support.

Diana

P.S. I am going to try to post or email the kindergarten weekly schedule earlier in the weekend.

Zoom Recordings:

This week we have been working out the kinks and learning how to record our zoom lessons and make them available to parents and students through the classroom website.

By Monday (9/28) evening, you can expect to access the recordings through the Recorded Zoom Lesson Link button located on our classroom webpage. It may ask you to request access, if so please hit the request access button and we will grant you access as soon as possible. --
