Welcome to the Kindergarten class page! You can learn more about Mrs. Troisi here.
In Kindergarten we are thrilled to use The Superkids Reading Program. It is a phonics based program that incorporates poems, reading and writing. The children love to learn about each Superkid and the adventures that they bring to the program. It is amazing to see the enthusiasm the children have for these characters and to hear the conversations they have with each other. Each month, the children work on a creative writing/art paper with their parents at home and then share it with the class. It is wonderful to see the pride in each child as they verbally present these papers to the class and then they are proudly hung in our hallway. In Religion, we shut the lights and light the battery candles to read stories from the Bible and to learn about God and all the gifts he has given us. It is beautiful to witness the sense of calm and wonder that comes over the class as we learn about Religion and God’s love for us.

The 100th day dress down may be homemade shirt, etc., with the number 100 or 100 items, however, children in Kindergarten should not dress as a 100 year old, as that is reserved for First Grade.

1/31 Mrs. Karolee and I would like to thank you very much for making Teacher’s Day so special for us. We love the “Hands Down” sign the children created and have it proudly hanging in our class. The wooden Birthday Sign is something we will treasure and we will think of this special class every year we use it. Please know that the best “Thanks” is the privilege of spending each day with your children. Thank you for entrusting them into our care and for the sacrifices you make to send your children to Good Shepherd Catholic Academy.

9/5/19 We had a great first day in Kindergarten. The children had smiling faces and were very happy to be back together with old friends and/or to be making new friends. We did a little, reading, rhyming and coloring. We began to explore how God made each us unique in our own way. Today, we talked about our loving families, one of God’s greatest gift to us and how each family is unique.
We 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 assessments, 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 the setting of the stories.”
As a result, formal homework assignments will not start until the week of 9/16/19, when we begin working in our math and ELA books workbooks in class. Please use this extra time next week to spend some time reading together with your child and reviewing letter, number and sound recognition.
Lastly, if you did not get a change please label and cover your workbooks and folders in contact paper. Please label your child’r crayon boxes and pencil cases and return all of the above to school.
Thank you for entrusting your children into our care and we look forward to a great year.
