    Dear  Parents, Caregivers and Ms. Kim’s Kindergarteners,


     Welcome to kindergarten at Manorhaven School and to room 3. 

    My name is Ms. Jennifer Kim and I will be your teacher for this year.  I have been teaching and learning from children for many years and I look forward to learning with you this year!

      We have a special bear in our class name Osito!  Some of you may already know him from your older brothers and/or sisters who may have been with him in Kindergarten.  If you don’t know him, that’s OK.  You will meet him soon and he looks forward to meeting you! 

    Every summer Osito and I like to garden and eat from the vegetables and fruits grown from the garden.  This year, Osito and I enjoyed our Manorhaven School garden and watched the vegetables grow. We ate lots of fruits and vegetables from the Manorhaven garden this summer.  We especially ate a lot of this “fruit” -  some say they are not fruit because they are not sweet.  Some say they are fruits because they have seeds in them.  What do you think?  Can you find it from the photos above?  It starts with the letter “t” and ends with a letter “o”.

        We also made sure we wore our masks when we went outside and washed our hands after returning from our visit to keep us healthy and safe.  We will talk more about how to take good care of our bodies and others in kindergarten!

    Finally, Osito and I spent time with “Lucy” and “Desi.”  They are our two tabby cats who like to play and at times get into mischief.  We will tell you more about them when we meet.

    We look forward to sharing our stories and listening to yours when we meet!  

    See you in September!
