Sheryl Young-
Welcome to Mrs.Young's Classroom!
                                           
 We use Tools of the Mind Curriculum for literacy and language arts. This is a center-based curriculum where the students rotate to different literacy centers and participate in shared activities, which helps develop oral language. Other Tools of the Mind Activities promote reading strategies, strategies for problem solving and abstract thinking and opportunities to explore and reflect on concepts in science. This is all done in a fun and meaningful way in a Tools of the Mind kindergarten classroom.
For math, we use "Go Math" curriculum, where the students are taught math concepts using technology, hands-on games, activities and workbooks.  Materials are sent home to reinforce what is learned in class.  Students have access to a website that corresponds with our curriculum and can be used at home.

  Classroom News

I am looking forward to meeting our new students as we begin school on Wednesday, September 5. Listed below are the items that your child needs to bring to school every day.

    • a small, healthy snack, such as juice and a cheese stick, that can be eaten in 10 minutes. Please do not send any items with nuts.
    • a backpack, labeled with your child's name, that is large enough to hold a folder
    • The blue Randolphville folder,which will be given out on the first day of school. Please be sure to check for any papers that have been sent home each day.  Any money or notes to me should always be put in this folder, since I go through them each day.

Any supplies that are brought in will be shared in the classroom.

 
 
This month, we will be getting to know each other, learning class rules and hearing fairy tales and acting them out.  We will learn about our school and community and how to show kindness and work as a team.
I hope to meet all of you at Back to School Night on Thursday, September 20, where a lot of important information will be shared.
