Kindergarten - Miss Narkis


Welcome to Kindergarten! If you have any questions or concerns, please send me in a note with your child.

I have been part of the teaching staff here at St. Chris for over 15 years and love it. I also taught for 10 years in the public school prior to coming to St. Chris. My whole career has focused on the early childhood years. I find that kindergarten is a challenging but very fun level to teach and at St. Chris I’m pleased to be able to include a spiritual component to my teaching.

Mrs. Irene Foran is the Kindergarten aide for Miss Narkis.

We have just begun the beautiful season of Advent, leading us toward the ultimate celebration of Christmas!  As we light each candle on our Advent wreath, we remember Jesus as the Light of the world and mark the approaching date of His birth.  We have an Advent cross hanging on our classroom door on which the children will be recording their happy faces.  The happy faces represent good deeds done by the children and serve as gifts for Jesus' birthday.  The children have already come up with some good ideas of things they plan on doing in the coming weeks.

Graphs and patterns will be covered this month along with more number work.  We already keep a daily weather graph which serves as a visual recording for the children to use in making comparisons.  They can't wait to color in a red box which indicates a snowy day!  Over the past few weeks, we have been working on number combinations using unifix cubes.  This will be helpful later on when we cover basic operations.

Our reading program is moving right along, and we will continue adding to our list of high frequency words.  The children know them well, due to daily spelling bees, and they are also able to create sentences with them.  This application is also reflected in their journal writing.

This month is short and busy so please keep these dates in mind for upcoming special events:

Dec. 2  No School

Dec. 3  KN Christmas shopping (2:00pm)

Dec. 8  Mass in honor of the Immaculate Conception

Dec. 10  PreK-2 Christmas program (in church at 10:00am)

Dec. 22  Christmas party

Dec. 23  Early Release (12:15pm - Free Dress & No aftercare)
