Welcome to Kindergarten
From the Ball's Bluff Kindergarten Team
Ms. Jessica Finger
Mrs. Lori Borden
Mrs. Alison Shipp
We are pleased to have the opportunty to help children at Ball's Bluff Elementary School develop the skills they need to become lifelong learners! We will work together with our principal, assistant principal, and special area teachers to provide the most appropriate instruction for your child.
We will learn to read and write using the Pathways Literacy Program. Pathways is a comprehensive language arts program which engages children in a variety of meaningful literacy activities.
We will learn new math skills with the Math Investigations Program. Investigations is a means of delivering math instruction which provides opportunities for children to explore and extend their knowledge of math concepts using manipulatives.
Parents, you have a wonderful opportunity to create another special bond with your child when you share a book together. Not only will this be a memorable time for the both of you, but also your child will develop a love for reading and books. We encourage you to read with your child every day. You can choose from so many different types of books - Poetry, Non Fiction, Fairy Tales...anything your child seems to enjoy!
If you need help choosing books to read, please let us know.
We love books and would be glad to help!
