Mission: The aim of kindergarten is to provide a basic foundation for your child's education along with making a smooth transition from home to school.
*Reading Readiness: A print-rich environment is provided. We focus on beginning reading skills. The first six weeks we will be beginning our letter studies. Children will learn letter names and the sound/s they make.
The letters covered will be: Nn, Aa, Dd, Ss
Sight words learned are: the, a, my, that, and, I
*Language: To encourage reading we provide an environment to stimulate phonemic awareness. Such skills as rhyming, beginning sounds, ending sounds, breading words apart, putting them together, etc. Also, we work with word families and sight words to build vocabulary.
*Math: The first six weeks we will be sorting objects, identifying shapes and understanding and using positional terms.
*Science: Topics covered: Five Senses, Apples
