Ms. Thomspon's Kindergarten
Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Shannon Thompson and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! This is my fifteenth year teaching kindergarten and eighth year at Olmsted. This year is new to everyone so we need to work together to make this work! It is a learning experience for all!
I use the Bloomz app to communicate regularly. You can message me privately or post on the wall and get pictures, info., dates etc. It comes as a text message as well. when you download the Bloomz app you will enter the code WZUE37 or text @WZUE37 to 1-800-BLOOMZ1.
It is important your child starts on the right foot! Please make sure he/she gets enough sleep every night and is up on time for school every day! Please also make sure that they establish and stick with a routine so it will make for an easier transition when we go into the building. Let them open a lunch box and practice doing things independenlty-zipping, tying, opening and closing things. Have a set area for them to work and for breaks. We will send out a schedule that is suggested.
Communication is key for this type of situation or any for that matter. Work will be posted on Bloomz, Schoology and we will have face-to-face time with Microsoft Teams! I will post links for lessons, read alouds etc as well as being live at certain times. The district is still working on this.
My son Ryder ^ who is now 7 years old!
