My ClassKindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten

Kindergarten is a very busy place. We have many things to learn. Instruction is done in three different ways: large group, small groups, and individual work. Social skills are a very important aspect of our curriculum. Learning to be a good listener is the most important thing we will learn all year. My job is to give your child every skill they will need to order to become good students.

Letter recognition, letter/ sound recognition, and writing the letters are a large part of the day. Each child will have a Writing Binder which we will 'fill up" with all kinds of tools to help us learn to read and write. In Math, we will learn a great deal from the calendar each day. We will also learn patterns, shapes, counting, measurement, and beginning addition. Each week we have a different theme to correspond with our letter. This is the way we work science and social studies into the day.

Mrs. Grant is in her 19th year of teaching. She has been at Grundy School for fifteen years. She taught special education for eleven years and is now in her 7th year of teaching Kindergarten. She graduated from Western Illinois University in May of 1998 and also has a Master's Degree. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, shopping, working out, and spending time with her family and friends at the cabin. She and her husband live in Peoria with their 2 kids, a son and a daughter and one furry friend, Charlie Brown. 

My mission in Kindergarten is to provide a safe and encouraging environment where students can explore all aspects of learning. I hope to motivate children by creating a classroom family where hands-on acitivities foster communication, literacy and love of learning.
