Great Start!

Our year has gotten off to a wonderful start! You have great kids! I know they are getting tired, and it may be becoming difficult to get them motivated in the morning. This is very normal during the first several weeks of kindergarten. As the year progresses, their bodies will get used to this new schedule. :) In the meantime, you can help by being sure they get to bed at a reasonable time, as well as eat a good, nutritious breakfast to keep them focused in the mornings.

We have been working a lot on procedures and routines, learning the "ins and outs" of kindergarten and Beartooth Elementary. We have also been working on identifying colors and shapes, as well as writing our names.

If you practice at home, be sure to help your child write their name with a capital at the beginning, and lower case for the rest. We use D'Nealian writing in kindergarten (lots of monkey tails), which helps the kids as they start cursive in 3rd grade.
