Kindergarten students dressed up for their class' Royal Tea Party

Mrs. Goforth, kindergarten teacher at Merriwether Elementary, hosted a Royal Tea Party for her kindergarten students. At the beginning of the year, in order to get to know her students better, each child was granted king or queen for the day. Being king or queen meant you received a big gold necklace and crown that the student could wear all day and keep. They also were line leaders and the classroom helper for the day. Each student was interviewed on their big day and it allowed the teacher and students to get to know each other better. The interview also included many questions regarding their favorites. The responses were recorded on a large chart about each student. Mrs. Goforth would use the charts to reinforce kindergarten standards such as sentence structure, beginning sounds, and identifying sight words. Once everyone had the chance to become king or queen, the classroom was magically transformed into a Royal Tea Party. Each student was asked to dress up to attend and manners were discussed as students enjoyed their treats. This type of teaching at MES is just one way that teachers reinforce Edgefield County School District’s mission to help build world-class citizens.
