Mrs. Jennifer K. De Young - Kindergarten  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to Mrs. De Young's Kindergarten Class in the Gold Community at Grand Prairie!

Our 2017-2018 class currently has 22 students - 12 Boys and 10 Girls. I am looking forward to a magical year of learning and laughter with everyone.

Please check our class page often. I strive to keep it updated. My primary communication to you will be through our webpage, emails, or the Remind 101 app. Click here to join our Remind https://www.remind.com/join/9ge8k
OR text the message 9ge8k to 81010.


Every student has a yellow "Take Home" folder that goes between home and school DAILY. Please check this special communication tool every night to see what we are up to each day and for all of our most important news and updates. Send any notes or papers back to us in this same yellow folder and your child will turn them in to my Cinderella mailbox.

Every child will have a yellow fluency reading bag that should go between home and school DAILY. We will use the leveled readers inside each day in class and it will be your child's HOMEWORK to read them at home each night.


**************************************
I CAN statements are simple sentences designed from Common Core Standards. They are written in student-friendly language. I CAN statements break down learning objectives into actions that students can read, understand and perform. In our class, I CAN statements are posted in a yellow pocket chart and reviewed. This helps students to understand the expectations, become more responsible for their learning and more reflective of their work. Kindergarten Outcome Assessments are created from I CAN statements, which are posted on each assessment. This helps parents and students to have a clear visual of kindergarten expectations, and a better understanding of their child’s development and growth.
