Hi! My name is Ms. Chantel Tindall and I am the Junior Kindergarten teacher at Barr Colony School. I have taught for over a decade in Grades 3, 5, 1, and 1/2 before I landed the best job out there: Junior Kindergarten. In 2011, I completed my Master of Education (M. Ed.) in Educational Administration from the University of Saskatchewan. My husband teaches Grade 7 at Bishop Lloyd Middle School and we have 3 little boys of our own under the age of 6.
My goal is for your child to love coming to school. We encourage their independence and build their confidence to successfully head off to Kindergarten following our program.
Here is a typical Jr Kindergarten Day:
Drop Off (either 8:35 or 11:50 am)
Table Time - Activities that encourage counting, letter recognition and developing hand strength are set out for children to interact with as they arrive at school.
Library - Students get to choose one book from the library each time they come to school.
Gym - Students use the plasma cars and play with different equipment from the gym.
Center Time - This is a time for students to use their imaginations and work on social skills while playing and interacting with others. Crafting is offered at this time as well.
Outside Time - Students get outside almost every time they come to school. Getting outdoors in all types of weather builds resilience in children.
Pick Up (either 11:15 am or 2:30 pm)
