West Point kindergarten teachers thinking out of the box
At Monticello Academy’s West Point campus, kindergarten students are participating in fun and inventive activities in the classroom. Thanks to the school’s amazing kindergarten teachers, Ms. Bean and Ms. Mcbride, students have celebrated the 100th day of school, Dr. Seuss day, a marriage between Q and U, and more!
All of these great activities continue to build kindergarten students’ love of school and contribute to the school’s high early reading growth scores. Monticello Academy West Point finished the 2020-21 school year with the highest reading growth scores in Davis County (compared to other districts and charter schools).
The marriage between Q and U serves as an easy way to remind West Point kindergarten students that in the English language, the letter Q will (almost) always come paired with U.
March 2nd, which is Dr. Seuss’s birthday and also the birthday and the National Education Association, is a day celebrated across the country that promotes the importance of reading. For Dr. Seuss day, the West Point kindergarten students read The Cat in The Hat, including some fun decorations and activities.
During the celebration of the 100th day of school, Ms. Mcbride and Ms. Bean dressed up as if they were 100 years old and students celebrated with lots of counting and math games.
These classroom celebrations give kindergartners a space to play and learn in the classroom, leading to strong academic achievement AND joy in learning.
