welcome

The Kindergarten Team will be posting a Learning Choice Board here on our class web pages on Sunday night each week. The Learning Choice Board will have optional learning activities for reading, writing, math, science/social studies. It will also have links to the Encore and Resource teachers’ web pages which will have suggested activities for your child as well. 

These activities will be review of content that was taught this year in the classroom. We have provided you with enough options for your child to do something in every subject area Monday through Friday. However, this is meant to be a resource for families and is optional.  

As it is an optional choice board, you can choose to do whatever suits the needs of your family. While the board will change each week, “Drop Everything and Read” will remain as we believe it is the most important learning opportunity for your child. During “Drop Everything and Read,” please have your child read independently for at least 15-30 minutes. The work from the choice board activities will not be collected or graded, but please feel free to share any pictures of your child enjoying their learning!
