Welcome to Kindergarten at Grant Elementary! I have been a teacher at Grant since 1986--I've taught second and third grade for many years but kindergarten is the most special place--everyone loves learning here! I'm so excited to be teaching all of these wonderful, eager five and six year olds!

On this webpage you'll find the weekly newsletter, Kindergarten Connection, which I send home in the blue Friday folders each week. It will tell you what we are learning in each of the subject areas, as well as which days we go to Gym, Art and Music so your child can dress appropriately. I also will let you know of any special kindergarten activities and programs.

 Another thing on the website is our list of kindergarten sight words, from the first quarter of school to the fourth quarter. Each week we send home several of these sight words on white index cards for your child to practice at home. By the end of kindergarten they will know over 100 words!

I've also icluded our class rules--actually, they're part of a Social Contract that we all discuss and agree are good rules for our class. 

Be sure to check out the Kindergarten Links under the Grade Level Pages at the top of this page. There are some great reading and math ideas!
