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!
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.

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.
