Kindergarten Team Page

The Kindergarten Team is extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with your family this year! We believe in providing a safe, warm, and welcoming learning environment where all students are valued and accepted. The Kindergarten Team sets high expectations and holds students accountable to the highest standards both academically and socially.

NEW:  Welcome to Kindergarten! We are eager to start the school year with all of our precious new friends!

Thank you to all families that have provided donations for the school year! We truly appreciate it!

Please check the documents folder for a year long list of high frequency words that your child must read, write, and spell each quarter. Please also continue to read with your child daily. The rigor of curriculum increases each quarter and reading with your child will assist them in developing needed literacy skills.

We LOVE volunteers! Anyone interested in volunteering in your child’s classroom must go through the volunteer orientation process first. Please visit the Kloefkorn home webpage under the parent tab for further directions. Any questions about the volunteer orientation process, please direct towards Angie Taylor in the Kloefkorn office. THANK YOU!

Student’s BIST Goals For Life

I can take good care of myself, even if I am mad.
I can be productive and follow directions even if I don’t want to.
I can be okay, even when others are not okay.

 

The BIST Bottom Line

It is never okay to be disruptive.
It is never okay to be hurtful.

 

Math Homework
Our  math curriculum, Math Expressions, is developed to build deep levels of conceptual understanding of number sense in the earliest learners.  Learning is gained through whole group, small group, and individual repeated practice both at school and in  students’ homework.   We appreciate all your help with the homework that is coming home.  It provides your child a chance to talk about what they are learning and gives you the opportunity to see it in action.  Please talk to your child about their findings.  Ask questions that will involve them in describing their meaning making homework or how they discovered their answer to a particular problem. Math homework does need to be returned to school. Math homework should take no longer than 15 minutes. Therefore, if you find your family spending longer than that on a particular homework assignment, put a note on it for the teacher explaining how long your child  worked if it is not completed and what difficulty occurred. Thank you for partnering in your child’s education!
Please help your child learn responsibility by completing all assigned homework and returning it to school the following day!
