Welcome to Kindergarten

There is a wonderful sense of home when you walk through the front doors of Samsula Academy. We deeply believe that your child will find our school to be a warm and friendly place. We are very proud to be a part of the Samsula Academy School family. Once you have opened those doors you are a member of our family too.

We wish to welcome you to Kindergarten. Kindergarten is a new and exciting time for you and your child. It’s a time of change… new beginnings, new friends, new challenges and exciting discoveries! We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation for allowing us to be a part of your child’s life during this precious time of growth and discovery!

This is our honor to welcome you and your child into Kindergarten and into… our life. We will do our best to make this year in Kindergarten enjoyable but also filled with academics. Our motto is: “The seeds we plant today will blossom into a flower tomorrow.” It will be our pleasure and privilege to watch your child’s personality and learning abilities blossom and unfold day by day.

We run a very effective classroom which is well structured but allows for fun and growth. We hold high expectations for all my students. Furthermore, we strongly believe in differentiated instruction. Research reveals that all students learn differently. Therefore, we plan my lessons to meet the needs of all students. It will be our honor to expand the growing minds of tomorrow and encourage them to become the great leaders of the new generation.

You will find very useful information on this blog. I will update it with events that are happening in our classroom, student work, and other related events. If you have any questions, you may contact us at cgibbs@readingedgeacademy.org or sbowden@readingedgeacademy.org

Samsula Academy Kindergartners Take A Field Trip!

What a week this was! So many new things!
First, We got to welcome Bradley Alexander Gibbs into the world! Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Gibbs on your newest bundle of joy. We hope the last 2 weeks have been an amazing journey. Bradley is beautiful!

Our week was all hustle bustle surrounding his birth and Mr. Gibbs being out for a week.
Mrs. Sherri and Mrs. Elizabeth had such a GREAT time being with the kids full time that week.
Our kindergartners were such big help in getting us through the week. If we stumbled for one moment, they were eager to get us back on track and let us know how Mr. Gibbs does it!
We learned about the letter Uu, and the letter Ww.
We made all kinds of scarecrows and a bat puppet, and enjoyed hanging them on our giant scarecrow in our classroom.

We read a great halloween book that we all loved, called. "Inside a House that is Haunted"
In math we continued practicing and learning to count to 30 and greater than less than worksheets.
Our Terrific Kids of the week were Jake Poland and Lily Tracey. Congratulations! We love our Terrific Kids!

And, in other "new things" Our kindergartners went on their first field trip!
We all loaded up and went to the Peabody Theatre in Daytona Beach. The kids were thrilled to be seeing "If you Give a Mouse a Cookie"
Our kindergartners and parents enjoyed seeing several children's books performed by a wonderful acting group. I think you would all agree, it was delightfully funny and an adorable play. A Big Thank You! to all of our parents that went and chaperoned.
