Hi! My name is Mary Lovejoy and I am glad to be your child's Kindergarten teacher! I have been teaching Kindergarten in Northside since 1985. I am married and have 3 children. In my spare time I like to scrapbook, read and work outside in the yard.

THE KINDERGARTEN YEAR
In Kindergarten, we will learn about the story elements of books, rhyming, colors and shapes, the letters and the letter sounds, numbers, sets of numbers, patterns, reading, writing and much more. Check the newsletter weekly to see what we are doing each week.
How Can You Help?
Practice, Practice, Practice: Your child will be working on writing letters, learning the letter sounds, numbers, counting sets and alot more. However, they will need some extra practice so that they become confident in their skills. Much of what your child needs now is language development. In other words, talk to your child about counting, colors, letters, and the books you read together. Ask questions about the stories you read such as "What is your favorite part?" "Who are the characters?" Check your child's folder nightly and ask them about their day. Return both folders every morning.
Thank you for all of your help and support!
