My Students

Our kindergarteners as so excited to be in their first year of elementary school! They come every day ready to listen and learn and tackle all the challenges we throw their way. They love learning early math and reading skills, listening to stories and science lessons, and engaging in group play. They also enjoy beginning spelling challenges and various art projects we do to develop their creativity.

Our students are enthusiastic learners, so excited to be in school, and love working hard to improve their skills.

We are always so amazed by how focused they can be when learning a new skill, and excited they get with each new advancement.

My Project

We do so much each day in kindergarten! Early reading, math, writing, teamwork, physical development, spelling, building, designing... the list goes on! We are always on the lookout for tools and materials that will help improve their skills and broaden their horizons.

Social Studies Weekly will help our kindergartners grow their reading skills while learning about their state, country, and the world around them.

This program provides engaging materials for students, using stories and illustrations to introduce them to social studies in general, American history and geography. Each weekly edition focuses on a different topic, ranging from friendship to being a good citizen, from American holidays to holidays around the world, from mapping their neighborhood to exploring the entire globe.
