:/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.”

Dear Parents,

Kindergarten will be taking an “I-Ready” assessment next week on Tues. 11/17, Wed. 11/18, Thurs. 11/19, and Fri. 11/20. The test will be given first thing in the morning (9:30am) and last for approximately 20-30 minutes each session. It will focus on reading and math skills. It will be given to them on student I-pads, provided by the school.

(Tues & Wed will be math, Thurs & Fri will be reading.)

The test is simply a tool meant to offer teachers an inside look into each child’s individual performance. This information will be used to tailor individualized instruction going forward.

This test is designed to measure each student’s performance on an individual basis. Meaning, the questions will be tailored to the student based on their answers. If they consistently answer questions correctly, the following questions will increase in difficulty. If the student then answers questions incorrectly, the computer will adjust the level of difficulty trying to find the students comfort level, while challenging them at the same time.

Students can not prepare for the test academically, but they should get the proper amount of rest each night and start the day with a balanced breakfast.

Fully remote students will be expected to complete the exam at home, at the same time as those in class. Teachers will provide parents with a user ID and password, the morning of the exam.

As a result, google meets will need to be adjusted.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Robin, Mrs. Baglio, Mrs. Karolee & Mrs. Tricia
