Kindergarten kids
As Kindergarten teachers, we believe it is our job to provide your child with a strong foundation in reading and mathematics in order to guide children on the path to life-long learning.
 In Reading/ Language Arts we learn:
  • Letter identification and letter sounds
  • "Word Attack" skills (what to do when we come to a word we don't know during reading)
  • How to read simple text
  • How to write sentences on a specific topic
  • And much, much more!

In Math we learn:

  • How to read, write and make sets of numbers to 30
  • How to count to 100 and beyond by 1's, 5's and 10's
  • Positional relationships
  • Sorting by identifying characteristics
  • Sequencing
  • Ordinal numbers (first, second, etc.)
  • All about money
  • Basic addition and subtraction
  • The list goes on and on...

Our Science Topics include:

  • Earth materials/ surface features
  • Health and personal safety
  • Living/Non living
  • Characteristics of matter and light
  • Using Science inquiry to problem solve

Our Social Studies Topics include:

  • Civic Understandings (all about our families, important leaders, etc.)
  • Economic Understandings (community helpers, basic human needs)
  • Geographic Understandings (basic map, globe skills)
  • Historical Understandings (our personal information)
Kindergarten is an exciting yet challenging year for students, parents and teachers. If you have any questions about our Kindergarten curriculum, please contact your child's teacher.
