“Teaching Kindergarten requires a lot of patience, creativity and caring”-Dr.K.Govindaraju

Kinder-garden classes in SEVAI School

Teaching Kindergarten requires a lot of patience, creativity and caring. As children's first year in school, they will be excited and a little nervous of new things. As a kindergarten teacher, it is her responsibility to help them through and also teach them the skills that are needed in Kindergarten. The teacher is to prepare her room, so she has landed her dream job at a school teaching kindergarten. The first step is to prepare her classroom. it is to be very clean (kids are germy), and very neat and organized. It is to prepare the plan lessons. Brainstorm before school begins lots of different lessons for the children. Start a 3-ring binder with ideas. Make sure she has all supplies needed for most of them. If she has extra time during the school day, you can reach for the binder. Make sure to incorporate the curriculum, which she will receive from your principal. This is crucial to teach kindergarten. Welcome new students. Children will be nervous and so will parents, so be prepared for dealing with both. Have some extra stuffed animals on hand to console students the first week or so if they miss their parents. Take a photo of each during the first couple weeks of school. Save them. At the end of the year, it is nice to make a project to take home showing how the child has changed during the year. The children love this, and so do the parents. Accept parent volunteers. In the beginning, you may think you don't want volunteers in your classroom. But, volunteers can be a great addition to classroom. They can help teachers with some work, freeing her up to do other things. It is also nice for them to work with kids in small groups, or one on one.-Govin
