Hi there friends! Welcome to Mrs. Pine's Kindergarten Class! Here are some things to talk about with your child and activites to do at home!
(Save the date: Kindergarten Orientation August 29th)
Ask your child...
...what book he/she wants to read with you. Visit the public library for story hour. Borrow books from the library to read together at home.
...to tell you something that rhymes with cat, then hop. Continue to play the rhyming game!
...to create a picture. Give him/her crayons, colored pencils, glue, scissors, paper, and magazines or circulars. Cut out pictures and glue them on paper.
...to write his/her name.
...to draw a picture of him/herself.
...to do something for you. Give your child one-step directions to follow. Once your child can easily follow one step directions, give him/her two-step directions.
...to count on from any number besides the number one.
...to count up to 10, 20, 30 or even higher!
...to name the flat or 2D shapes.
...some questions. Build his/her vocabulary with everyday conversation. Discuss your daily routines, interesting experiences, and feelings. Listen to what he/she says and gently correct when necessary.
...to show you how he/she can button, zip, or snap things.
...to count down the days until the first day of Kindergarten!
I'm looking forward to another exciting year in Kindergarten!
