I am looking forward to sharing this year with you and your child! I want to be as much help to you as possible. I posted a little information below that will help prepare your student for the beginning of kindergarten.
Kindergarten School Supply List
(this is a little different than the list you will find at the store. I have a lot of pencils and markers, so I took those off and added a couple of items that will be beneficial to our classroom!)
1 pair of blunt tip scissors*
1 small schoolbox*
1-inch 3 ring binder*
1 pair of headphones (no earbuds-these are really hard for the kids to keep in their ears)*
1 rest mat OR towel (please be conscious of size)*
-no sleeping bags, stuffed animals, pillows please
2 bottles white glue & 2 glue sticks
4 boxes of crayons (24 count)
I package of Expo brand Dry Erase Markers (Expo brand works best on dry erase boards)
3 pocket folders with prongs (solid colors)
2 boxes of Tissues
1 container of lysol wipes
Hand sanitizer (to share with class)
*please label these supplies only
Remind is an additional way for me to communicate with you. Remind is a free texting service that I use throughout the school year to send out quick reminders to parents in our classroom. I can also send an individual text that you can respond to through Remind. When using Remind, I cannot see your phone number and you cannot see mine. If you do not like Remind after you sign up, you can always unsubscribe. I highly recommend signing up, because it will help keep you up to date with the many things that are going on in our classroom. This is how you sign up for reminders for our classroom:
text @38ak8 to the number 81010
I have a private classroom Facebook page that I would love to have you join! I post pictures of things we are busy doing throughout the school year on this page. (class party pics, assemblies, class pics, etc...) I want you to feel as much a part of our room as possible! If you would like to join the closed group page (no one will see these pictures beside us), search "Mrs. Woods' Kindergarten Class" on Facebook. If you have trouble finding it, I will also send you an invite through email after the school year gets started.
You will fill out a form at the beginning of the school year asking if your child can be on the internet. If you choose "no", I will not post pics of your child to this page.
MEET THE TEACHER
Tuesday, August 15th 6:30-7:30
Come and see our classroom and drop of school supplies! Dropping of school supplies early will make the first day much easier for everyone. Principal Miller is sending some forms through email that can be filled out ahead of time and you can give them to me this night. I will also have a folder with forms (the same ones sent to you through email and a few specific to our class) to fill out at your child's seat. I am excited to meet you!!
