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. 


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.
