I am pregnant with my 3rd child and starting to show. Any ideas to announce your pregnancy to kindergarten? My last pregnancies I was teaching 4th grade so it was easier. Thanks in advance!

Honestly, I never said anything. I was pregnant at different times of the year. Once I started the year several months pregnant so I told parents at orientation when I expected to be on maternity leave and when I expected to return. I never made an announcement to my students.

I also had a summer baby and never made an announcement to students or parents. At some point they figured it out, of course, but it was very matter-of-fact about it.

Same here. I ended last school year 20 weeks pregnant and was not really showing. I never said anything to the students or their parents.

For this year since the parents are allowed up to the classroom on the first day of school (kindergarten only), I told the parents I was pregnant, when I was due, and when I expecting to be back. After that I referred to the baby in my belly to the students. Just like all people, some students cared and were super excited and others didn't care even a little.
