Beginning of School

The 2020-2021 school year is quickly approaching and I'm looking forward to meeting your child and my new class! Here is a list of things you can do to help your child be prepared for kindergarten:

*writing his/her first name using an uppercase letter at the beginning followed

by lowercase letters

*identifying letters and their sounds

*identifying sight words

*handwriting: letters and numbers

*identifying numbers


*how to hold pencils, crayons, and scissors correctly

*zipping/unzipping jackets

*tying shoelaces
