Ring in With Your Resolutions or Questions
January 4, 2011
Each week I spend quite a bit of time contemplating what topic I want to blog about. I usually get my ideas one of three ways:
- From my students
- Reflecting on the past week and deciding what topic or activity is worthy enough to be shared with my readers
- Highlighting an activity based on the coordinating season.
Since this is the beginning of the year it is time to ring in the new year with my first blog of 2011. The best way to start off any new year is to make your new year resolutions–that is if you haven’t already.
Every January, as a teacher, I feel it is important for me to share with my Kindergartners my teacher goals or resolutions (not my personal resolutions) for my students, and I also have them think about what they hope to accomplish by the end of the school year –with some guidance of course.
I encourage you to sit down and talk to your child about their hopes and dreams for the year.
What did your child share with you?
As parents, how will you help or guide your kindergartner reach their goals for 2011?
I'm sure you had many goals for your kindergartner at the start of the school.
What are your goals for your children for the remainder of the school year?
Are you happy with how they are progressing?
Have your goals for them changed as the year has gone on?
I’m sure a lot of parents with children in kindergarten have the same desires as you do for your own children.
When parents and teachers keep an open line of communication everyone wins, so don’t forget to talk to your child’s teacher as well, and express your goals and your child’s goals for the remainder of the school year.
In addition, this year I would love to hear more from my readers and I hope this year you will let me know what issues you would like for me to touch upon or clarify for you.
One of my resolutions is to be a better listener. So, I need your help. As your expert in all things kindergaten, I want you to let me know what you need help with when it comes to your kindergartner. If you have questions about a certain topic there will be others that have that same question and most certainly will gain knowledge from it.
Let’s begin this year by making our resolutions known and helping each other reach our goals for 2011. With the help from others we will be sure to accomplish everything we wish–so who’s with me?!
Happy New Year Everyone!
