This year, the children and I will be focusing on statements about what the child will be able to do after they have mastered the concepts that are taught. These will be expressed in statements beginning with the words "I can". The "I can" statements will be posted at our door for any adults to see and then brought into the classroom for the children to see. At the beginning of each lesson, we will read the statements so that the children have an understanding of what they will be learning and when we will know they are successful. I will also post the weekly "I can" statements on this page so that you can easily see the skills that we are working on. Remember, kindergartners are a work in progress and your child has the full year to master these skills. If the "I can" statement is not completely achieved in that week, your child will need to continue to practice that skill or concept. Children that quickly master the skills will be challenged to progress to the next levels of that skill.
