Hi my Name is Patty Cobb, and I am blessed to teach Kindergarten at TCS.

My love for teaching began when I was in Kindergarten, where I fell in love with the supply closet, caught fire on picture day, and learned to sing Beautiful Savior.   After that I would trap any child I could find to play school with me.

I attended Keene State College and Concordia College in Bronxville NY.  I majored in Education and minored in Social Studies.  I began teaching in St. Louis where I taught a combined class of first and 2nd graders.  After that, I taught Preschool for 16 years, art K-8 for 13 years, and last but not least,  Kindergarten for 7 years.  I have taught in 5 different schools and 4 different states.

According to Piaget, the well-known developmental psychologist, Kindergarteners are entering the phase of “concrete operations” in which they begin to engage in reason and logic.   They enjoy exercising these new mental muscles.  Their imaginations are blooming and they are becoming less egocentric and more able to form meaningful relationships with others.  What a perfect time to fuel their joy of learning!

It is my privilege to set the table for hungry hearts and minds.  My chief goal is to provide a loving Christ centered learning environment where each child can grow in confidence, knowledge, skill and most importantly their relationship with Jesus.  I have come to realize that teaching is amazing, rewarding, joyous, challenging, never ever boring and sometimes, so beautiful it takes your breath away.

Yours in Christ,
Patty Cobb, Kindergarten Teacher   pcobb@tcskeene.com

Hey Kinder parents,

We are off to the fire station tomorrow! 

Please send in car seats if you are not driving. 

If you are driving, please come at 9:30 to get car seats squared away. 

We will leave at 9:40.  Please bring change for parking meters.

Please know we LOVE to go outside!
Make sure your children have layers, warm coats, gloves or mittens and hats. 

It’s always better to send too many warm things than not enough. T

he wind has been very nippy this week!

See you tomorrow!

Mrs. Cobb

(don’t forget…. stuffy, bake sale, and pizza day)

Dear Kinder parents,

Tomorrow, we will try to have some “outside” school time!

In Kindergarten we have a new volunteer, Mrs. Summerville!

She comes most days and will help during center time.

She played learning games with your children this week and

helped them make patterns. We are very blessed to have her.

Mrs. Summerville is a retired teacher and a blessing to us all.

In His love,

Mrs. Cobb

Dear Kinder Parents,

We had a great time at East Hill Farm!   Thank you chaperones, we could not have gone without you!  Please share any farm pictures with me.

Wednesday is the first day of paid popcorn!   Last week your child received a free bag to see if they liked it.  If you want your child to receive popcorn every Wednesday, please send in $3 for 6 weeks or $17 for the whole year.   As usual, please put the money in a baggie or envelope with your child’s name. 

All the money raised goes towards purchasing new books for the library and that’s a good thing!

Today we released monarch butterfly #6!!!!!

Please have your children read the little books they bring home, putting their finger under each word as they read.  The squirrel book from our Scholastic magazine is especially good!   It will come home Thursday.

This Friday, your child is welcome to dress up for Colonial Day.   We have lots of great activities planned for that day. 

Friday is also “stuffy” day, bake sale day, pizza day.. OH MY!

In His love,
Mrs. Cobb
