The New Kids
I just spent an active and informative week with some new kindergarten students. My district is fortunate enough to have received grant funding for what we call, Leap into Kindergarten, a summer program run prior to the school year starting. It gives the k-teachers a chance to get our eyes on the new crop and see what they know. I like knowing what I am getting into before the year starts . . . and in some ways ignorance is bliss. I am hopeful it will be a good year and hopeful for all teachers, especially those who are less fortunate with increases in class size and less funding. Good luck to everyone!
