Kindergarten – Baglio

Home > Classrooms > Kindergarten – Baglio

 :/Welcome to my Kindergarten class page! You can learn more about me here.

This school year promises to be both EDUCATIONAL and ENTERTAINING. The children will have the pleasure of getting to know the many characters of the “Superkids” reading program. Along with Cass,Oswald, Doc, Golly and others, our students will become engaged, motivated and ultimately, successful readers.

Equally as important, our kindergarten class will celebrate what it means to be a member of God’s church. They will begin building a foundation upon the lessons of God is our creator and He loves us all. They will also learn the importance of human kindness, and have daily opportunities to share such acts with all those they encounter.

I’m thrilled to be sharing this school year with your child. Teaching affords me a wonderful opportunity to inspire children to learn… not because they have to, but because they want to! I promise to do my best to make this learning experience “enjoyable” and “endless.”

HAPPY GRADUATION DAY BOYS AND GIRLS!  I’M SO PROUD OF YOU ALL!!

Below, you will find instructions explaining the summer work your child is responsible for completing. 

#1.  EDUCATION CITY:  

www.educationcity.com” Education City is brought to us by the providers of Mathletics. Education City is a combination of Language Arts, Math and Science. It has fun games and activities meant to help reinforce the skills we have worked on all year in Kindergarten. You will use Education City to complete your summer work. You will receive a letter in the next two weeks advising you of your obligation to use this site over the summer.  You can find your child’s Username and Password sent to you in their gmail.

#2.  FIRST GRADE BOOK REPORTS:  

In our Google classroom, you will find the summer book reports assigned by next years First Grade Teachers.  They were kind enough to include two versions… “printable” & “electronic.”  Please note, if it’s possible to PRINT, they would PREFER you did… (It’s a valuable tool to assess your child’s handwriting and grammar skills.)  If however, you do not have a printer, then please utilize the “electronic” version of the book reports.  Please print these forms at your earliest convenience, so you have them physically available to you, when you’re ready to begin the student’s work.

Monday 3/30/20:

Hello Parents,

I hope this email finds everyone safe and healthy.

I miss all my students very much, but I’m very happy to know that everyone is at home surrounded by the love of their families.  I hope we will see each other again very soon.

Until then, we will start adding some new things to our schedule this week… in hopes of continuing our learning as best we can.

Some things you can expect are: being asked to “upload” pictures of your child’s completed work,  incorporating writing assignments, and organizing a “google meet” so we can share “news of the day” together.

First, UPLOADING COMPLETED WORK:

Each day I will ask for a different assignment to be uploaded… NOT everything that was assigned that day, just the pages I mention specifically in my instructions.  This is an important request, as it is meant to help me keep track of students’ progress. So, I want to give you directions of how to do this from your cell phones.  As a parent myself, I find it much easier to do on my cell phone… as opposed to first getting the pictures to my laptop and then sending the pictures to the classroom.  

  1. Download GOOGLE CLASSROOM to your cell phone.
    1. Our class code is: lqbmuwt
  2. When I ask you to “upload” a photo of your child’s completed assignment…
    1. Take a picture of their work on your cell phone
    2. Go to the classroom (on your phone), find the assignment & hit the purple circle icon on the left 
    3. Then hit ^ arrow above “Your work” (found at the bottom of the page)
    4. Hit the +  to “Add attachment”
    5. Choose “file”
    6. It will bring up all the photos in your gallery, the top pic is the most recent one you took
    7. Hit the picture… it will show a checkmark next to it
    8. Hit open (top right corner of page)
    9. It will “think” for a moment and then the attachment pops up
    10. Hit “Turn in”… all done.

 

Second, INCORPORATING WRITING ASSIGNMENTS:

Writing is a very important skill developed in Kindergarten.  Every week, as part of the Superkids curriculum, we practice our writing in the classroom.  To continue helping the children develop this skill we will now add it to our GOOGLE CLASSROOM assignments.

Third, GOOGLE MEET:   

This Wednesday, April 1st at 12pm… I would like to invite you to a Google Meet.  You will find an invite in your child’s gmail account. Simply click “join meeting” and you will see me there.  It’s an opportunity for us all to see each other and spend some time catching up. It will NOT be a formal lesson.  Rather, we will share our “news of the day”… like we did each morning in class. Of course, parents should stay close by to assist their children on the computer.  At first, we will all be greeting each other out of excitement, but then I would like each student to put their mic on “mute”… only the student called on to talk, should take their mic off mute & share their thoughts.  This way everyone has a turn. The meeting will only last about 30-45 mins. I hope everyone can join us. It is my hope to do this every so often. I will give advance notice in Google Classroom, so parents can make arrangements.

Thank you so much for your continued support.  Everyone is doing such an amazing job!!!

Mrs. Baglio

 

 

S P E C I A L    N O T E

Hello Parents,

On Monday, March 23rd we will enter the wonderful world of GOOGLE CLASSROOM.  

That means, we will no longer be posting our classwork or homework assignments on the GSCA website.  Instead, students are expected to sign into google classroom each morning, to take attendance and receive instructions for that day’s lessons.  

To get started, you are asked to sign into your child’s gmail account (1st initial and then last name@gscabk.org  / password “abcd1234”)  Once you sign in, you’ll be asked to change your password.  When that is complete, you’ll see an icon in the upper right hand corner that looks like a “waffle.”  When you hit that, you’ll see a folder labeled “Google Classroom”… this will be our new home for the duration of our “distance learning” experience.  If you have not already done so, please make every effort to sign into our virtual classroom by Sunday, so we are all accounted for and ready to begin work first thing Monday morning.  

WHAT OUR SCHOOL DAY WILL CONSIST OF:

  1. ATTENDANCE:  Everyday at 10am I will ask the whole class a question.  When your child answers, I will know that they are present for attendance.  I would ask that you do your best to respond before 11am, so I can promptly submit the attendance to the office. 
  2. CLASSROOM ASSIGNMENTS:  Just as we have been doing this week, I’ll continue to post instructions explaining what activities need to be completed, in all the major subject areas.  On occasion, you will also find recorded videos that are meant to support that day’s lessons.
  3. HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS:  In keeping with our established routines, students can expect the same homework schedule.  Monday through Thursday; math, handwriting, and phonics. Reading Journal entries will be due every Wednesday.   
  4. OFFICE HOURS:  Everyday, between 10am and 12pm, I will be available to answer any questions you or your child may have in reference to the assigned work.

Of course, you are welcome to write to me at any time, but outside these hours might result in an answer the next school day.

Obviously, Kindergarten will handle this situation differently from the rest of the school.  Our students will continue to do all their work on paper, whether it be in their workbooks or worksheets.  I would ask that all parents help their students stay faithful to the workload. We want to use our time wisely and ensure that meaningful learning continues to take place.  That being said, I will periodically request that parents take a picture of certain lessons & send it to me via email, so I can assess their progress.

I realize this is a lot to take in, but I promise we will get through this together!  I understand that we are each taxed with stresses we could never have imagined. So, it’s completely understandable that finding our way back to our regular routine might take some time.  However, I truly believe that children not only crave structure, but thrive when it’s in place. I will do my best to be here, for both you and your child. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Kind Regards,

Mrs. Baglio

Thursday 9/5/19:

Good afternoon parents.  Just a quick note to let you know that kindergarten is off to a fabulous start!  We all enjoyed our day getting aquainted with our classroom, teachers and new friends.  I’m happy to report their were smiles all around.

Homework:  Please cover students “handwriting” notebook and “math” workbook with clear contact paper, if you haven’t already.  Also, please return to school your child’s 2 pencil cases and 2 boxes of crayons… all supplies should be labeled with students name on the front.

Next Week:  I would like to give you an idea of what to look forward to next week.  We will be spending some of our classroom time taking both math and ela “beginning of year” benchmark assessments, in an effort to gather information that will be helpful in developing our lesson strategies.  We will also spend some quality time reading fun stories, that the children will then respond to through personal illustrations… focusing on both “main characters” and story’s “setting.”  As a result, formal homework assignments will not start until the week of 6/16/19… when we begin working in our math and ela workbooks in class. 

 

Tuesday 9/10/19:

Please cover all students books: notebook and workbook.

Also, please return any paperwork so it can be submitted to the office.

Thank you.
