With all the excitement this entails and some worries too, Primary and Kindergarten teachers are working together to make this transition smooth and for the children to enjoy this very important part of their school life.
We started three weeks ago, with Ms. Janine and Ms. Valerie, first grade teachers, who came to kindergarten to tell us a story and they invited us to visit the primary premises the following week.
We thought about what we wanted to know regarding first grade and prepared some questions. When we arrived, Marta and Florencia, first grade Spanish Teachers, together with the primary children explained to us how first grade life would be. They had become experts on certain topics and they were the ones in charge of answering our questions. They also gave us a surprise! A pencil for our first grade pencil box, with a name tag on it!!
Our next get together took place in First Grade again, where we sat beside a First grader and we played a “Joining the dots” activity. To finish our visit we went to play outside, in the field, where they have theirs break-times together.
We still have one more activity to come, Kindergarten and Primary teachers are preparing a surprise for the children. What will it be? Something that will surely make them smile.
