Welcome to Mrs. Baker's Kindergarten!
Important Information To Start the Year:
It is always fun to shop for new school supplies! You child will not need anything for school other than a book bag that can fit a pocket folder. I know the plan says all students will need their own pencil box. You will not need to send one in for kindergarten. Since we do not know how this year will go, I highly recommend putting together a School Tool Kit for your child at home. You can keep the tools in a pencil box, cups, or whatever you’d like to use to keep them organized. 😊
Some things to include…
*glue bottle or glue sticks
*#2 regular pencils
*crayons/colored pencils/markers- any or all of these are great! We don’t use markers a ton in school since they bleed through paper, but we do use them when rainbow writing letters/words.
*watercolors- not necessary, but can be a fun way to write letters/words
If you would like to contribute to supplies for our classroom, here is a list of items we can always use. Thank you in advance!
* Drinking Straws (for fine motor activities)
* Lysol or Clorox wipes
*Lysol air disinfectant
*unscented hand sanitizer
When classes are finalized, I will send out an invite for you to join our Class Dojo. This is a free app that you can download to your phone. It will serve as a primary communication tool throughout the year. With the Class Dojo app I am able to send out important information as a whole class, as well as, individual families. It works more like a text message (if you allow the notifications) and is often easier to check than personal emails. If you do not want to join our Class Dojo, please let me know so I can plan accordingly.
