Welcome to Kindergarten!  

Kindergarten is a year filled with learning and fun!  Great focus is spent on the beginning stages of reading, writing, learning math!  Students and their parents are encouraged to make reading at home a daily practice.  Homework is given weekly, and reading at home is part of that work.  We teachers cannot do it alone!  Students are encouraged to read with siblings, family members, and pets!        As we read together in the classroom, students will identify that
                        words are everywhere!  We will explore and their sounds and
                        how they work together to form words.  Play with language,
                        creating nonsense words and silly words are some of the ways
                        that we prepare for reading.  Students must practice their sight
                        words as they set out on this reading adventure.  Superkids is a new literacy
                        program that is used in kindergarten through second grade.
                        (for more information on Superkids, please log on to:             Various materials are used in the kindergarten classroom as
                        students enter the world of numbers.  Simpleaddition and
                        subtraction problems will be explored.   Ten-frames are a vital
                         piece of understanding numbers as students move forward in
                        their math understanding.  My Math is used as a tool to guide learning.
