Getting Ready for Kindergarten

Our friends at Christ Chapel Academy have some tips for all of you getting ready to send off a Kindergartner!

Robin Banford-Geisler and Genia Cole have
worked together teaching kindergarten classes at CCA for the past five
years.  Last school year, they were chosen co-teachers of the year at the annual teacher recognition luncheon
held on June 12th.   Each teacher is an amazing teacher in
her own right, sharing her passion for education, and love for learning with
her students.  They both understand that the early years of school are
foundational to helping students to become confident life-long learners. 
Each of them models Christ to their students, supporting self-discipline and
positive character development. Working together, however, they have been able
to challenge their young students to discover and develop their unique gifts
and talents. 
In the video, Robin and Genia share tips that
can help you get your new kindergartner off to a great start!
Feel free to share any additional tips that you
have learned that can be helpful to other parents reading this blog.
