This storyboard does not have a description.
The teacher will welcome the students, and introduce the morning expectations. There will be a transition song in the morning, and expectations will be set up early on. Each day, there will be a morning meeting on the rug, where students can prepare for the day to come, begin some mental exercises, and build their classroom community.
Welcome to Kindergarten! Every morning when you here this song, it will be your cue to clean up, say your goodbyes, and come to the rug ready to learn!
On one of the first days of school it is important to set up some classroom rules. Allowing the children to create their own set of rules can help ensure that they will remember and obey them more. This is also a great way for the students to understand why the rules exist, because they created them!
Let's come up with some classroom rules. Please raise your hand when you think of something we can add!
Make sure to keep the rules concise and clear, so that they are easier for the students to remember. Also, try and make all the rules in the affirmative, and remember to use positive reinforcement when possible.
Create a positive relationship with the students by getting to know them individually and showing an interest in their lives. This will create a level of respect and trust between the teacher and students.
How was soccer yesterday? Did you have fun playing with your friends?
Especially in the beginning of the year, some students may feel discouraged as recess if they do not have a buddy. Help the students and encourage them to play with someone new. Talk to the students in class about including each other. Especially if someone looks lonely, the students should be encouraged to reach out to each other and invite others to play.
Let's go find a friend to play with. It looks like Lucy is also looking for a friend.
On Fridays the teacher will send home a folder with work the children produced that week. It can also include any extra information or forms for parents. The teacher will also send parents a weekly newsletter via email to keep parents informed and allow them to practice what their children are learning in class.
Have a great weekend! Don't forget to give your families your Friday Folder and bring it back empty. I'll see you on Monday!
