What to Expect in Kindergarten
Kindergarten is a year to grow: academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.
In all subject areas, your child will be taught through a variety of methods that will ensure they are understanding and retaining the curriculum taught.
Social development is crucial in kindergarten. Through playing, sharing, and problem solving your child will be developing the skills needed to develop socially.
This year your child will learn how to label emotions. beyond happy or sad. Your child will learn skills in which they can handle their emotions. These are the foundational skills for your child to develop their emotional vocabulary that they will build upon as they get older.
In kindergarten we integrate faith in every subject. We begin and end each day with prayer, and often talk about God’s creation and how we, as Catholics, can take care of it. We attend weekly mass with the school. Our morning prayer is “Dear Jesus, I give you today in all that I think, do, and say.”
There are a few tools we need to help us continue to learn in new and exciting ways. Thank you for your donation.
Learning can continue at home! As a parent you are your child’s first teacher! Here are some links to activities and websites with ideas of things you can do at home!
Cutting, gluing, tying shoes, and more! There are a lot of opportunities to practice fine motor skills at home! Developing fine motor skills helps children with performing school tasks and life skills!
