Kindergarten is a special time for students! This is sometimes their first experience at full day school and we love to pack our day full of fun activities. We enjoy working with Letter People, playing games to learn our sight words, making our famous classroom igloo, Polar Express Day, and the Thanksgiving Pow Wow.
In kindergarten we are really working on the basics of reading. We are working on letter recognition, sounds, and the blending of sounds. We learn many sight words throughout the year and the students put all of this to use as they begin to sound our words and read sentences. We also working on counting, number recognition, shapes and patterns.
Socially and emotionally we are learning to use our words to resolve issues and learning to get along with friends. We are also learning to work independently in many areas. We enjoy. Jesus stories and applying them to our lives.
