Edgewood Elementary Hosts Kindergarten Open House
by Julie Liberati
On Saturday, March 18th, Edgewood welcomed future kindergarteners into their building for an open house. Families were able to tour the building and hear about all of the great things happening at Edgewood Primary, including how our kindergarten team incorporates STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) into the curriculum. The visitors learned about how science is incorporated in kindergarten. Throughout the year, several living creatures are brought into the classroom, such as turtles, a toad, mice, and many more! come Those in attendance at the open house also learned how technology is incorporated in library class. Edgewood has iPads, Kindles, Puzzlets, and computer labs available, as well as occasional visits from Osmo and Bee Bots. The families were also given an opportunity to tour the art room and see the artwork done by the current kindergarteners. The art projects help the children enhance their creativity as well as develop a love of art. Kindergarten students at Edgewood this year are learning about the opera, so the teachers were able to showcase how they are including the arts in their very own classrooms. The prospective students were read a story and each child was given new copy of the book to take home with them as well.
The open house was a successful event where the kindergarten team at Edgewood was able to display all of the wonderful things happening throughout the school year. The Edgewood staff was on hand to answer any questions and had the opportunity to meet some wonderful families! A great time was had by all and we are looking forward to seeing all of the new students in the fall!
