Class Description: Our half day kindergarten programs are located at an elementary school in Richmond, Kentucky. Of the twenty two kindergarten students in each program, about half are boys and half are boys ages five and six. While most of the students are Caucasian, we also have a few students that are Indian, and Japanese. There are two African American children. Most of the children are middle class. One class includes Suzie a student with Down syndrome. The other class includes Freda a child who is developmentally delayed.
Student Descriptions: Suzie has had a stroke and is hard of hearing. She has an FM system that helps her to hear a little bit better. She also is learning sign language. She needs to be placed close to the teacher, and may need help when using the restroom. It is best to give Suzie soft foods such as yogurt and jello. She may need some assistance with walking, and extra time in the hallway.
Freda is developmentally delayed and is low functioning. She has a hard time following directions and may need several cues before completing a task .
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am excited to announce that we are getting ready to start out Fall Fun Unit. During the unit, we will be learning about bats, owls, pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, Halloween safety, spiders, leaves, and scarecrows. Each lesson will be filled with educated experiences and fun activities presented in large and small groups. We will celebrate the end of the unit with a Halloween Party. The party will allow the students to share their costumes by wearing them to school and participating in our parade around the school. All parents are welcome to attend the Halloween Party. I am looking forward in carrying out the Fall Fun Unit and seeing all of you that can attend the party.
