Mrs. O'Brien's Kindergarten

Please send in an absent note on the day your child returns to school.  If you are going away, please let me know in advance. 

WELCOME TO KINDERGARTEN

Do everything in love.

A developmentally appropriate kindergarten is like a good home, where children can learn through playing, cooking, watching, listening, acting, reading, or pretend reading, and writing, or pretend writing.  It is a place where they can explore their environment, ask questions, and answer questions. It is a place where the teacher is like a parent: reading to the children and talking to them about stories they read: writing for the children, and allowing them to write for different purposes. It is a place where children clean up after themselves, learn more about familiar and unfamiliar topics (usually called themes), and learn more about what interests them most-themselves! Most importantly, it is a place where children learn that reading provides both enjoyment and information, and they develop the desire to read.
