I just got an email from my daughters school that they will be having a Kindergarten play day april 19th.
The afternoon is set up as follows:
1:00- 1:30 p.m.- scavenger hunt through the Elementary School in small groups
1:30- 2:00 p.m.- rotating through each of the (3) Kindergarten teachers' classrooms for story reading, craft, or
2:00- 2:45 p.m.- divide into two groups and split time between organized games in the gym
and free play time on the playground
As a "thank you" gift for attending, each child will receive a "name of school" Kindergarten Round-Up t-shirt, a cowboy hat, and a bandana.
She will attend Kindergarten at the school starting in August. They are doing such neat little things for the upcoming Kindergarteners. They will also have Kindergarten day at the end of July/early August where the kids will meet some classmates and teachers and have a huge pizza/pool party.
I am very nervous as she is my first kid entering big kid school (she is currently in a 2 day a week Prek). At least the school is making Kindergarten seem fun and exciting for the newest members to a school setting! We definitely picked the right school!
Did your school do anything to make your Kindergartener feel not so overwhelmed? Did they have any fun play days?
