Afternoon Enrichment Program
After Lunch Recess, it’s time for our Kindergarten Enrichment program, the traditional kindergarten portion of our day. The afternoon is a very exciting part of the day for kindergartners. Students further their learning of science and social studies during this time. They also receive specialized instruction in Spanish by Maestra Kerr, Garden with Ernie Dalton and Mark and Physical Education with Mr. Meza. Every Wednesday, the kindergartners get to spend the afternoon with their fourth grade buddies. The buddies help them further develop their academic skills while providing them with a unique social experience. Possibly the most important time of the afternoon is choosing time. This is when the students are allowed to explore and socialize through a variety of toys. They learn to share, take turns and work together. I see the most growth and the wonderful aspects of their personalities through choosing.
