I am so excited to welcome your little ones to Hawthorne. This year I will be at Jackson in the mornings. After that I will be heading to Hawthorne to teach PM Kindergarten. Each Friday I will be sending home a newsletter to update you on things we are learning and share upcoming events.
Below you will find information about our classroom, useful links to use at home, and more. Please don't hesitate to email me with any questions ([email protected]).
With the new addition of iPads in Kindergarten, we will be utilizing many apps to enhance our learning. Feel free to utilize these apps at home as well! As always, please contact me with any questions that you have.
- Writing Wizard (writing)
- Geoboard (math)
- Bob Books (reading)
- Starfall (reading)
- Raz Kids (reading) --I will send home information about logging in and suggested areas within the app once we get it up and running.
Unite for Literacy is a great website to visit as well. It has books sorted into categories to spark your child's interests and read for fun.
