“Most of what I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten….
Share everything.
Play fair.
Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life- learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance
And play and work everyday some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
Be aware of wonder.”
-Robert Fulghum
            Kindergarten is a place of wonder, hands-on activities, and one of the first experiences in a learning community. We use poetry, stories, plays, and songs to teach concepts in math, science, social studies, and language arts.
 Language Arts: Our primary reading, writing, and phonics curriculum is provided by a standards based program by Units of Study
Mathematics: Our math program is organized into five strands for instruction: Counting and Cardinality, Operations and Algebraic thinking, Number and Operations in Base ten, Measurement and Data, and Geometry provided by the Bridges math program.
Social Studies: Social Studies are integrated into our reading, writing, and study of our community and families. We work to develop competencies needed as citizens in a diverse, changing, and independent world.
Science: Science units are based on topics such as sorting and classifying, hot and cold liquids, senses, living and nonliving things, weather, seasons, plants, animals, and much more. Science is taught through a program called Mystery Science using manipulatives, experiments, videos, and a hands-on approach to learning.
Writing: Students learn to write upper and lower-case letters using printing techniques with specific stroke development. Journal writing and group writing facilitates student learning in addition to artwork and phonics based spelling.
Art: Art techniques, and craft projects are a vital part of teaching thematic studies in kindergarten. Art is taught thematically with appreciation of colors, shape, line, and various artists. Crafts are introduced through a variety of projects that enrich our daily thematic learning.
Music and Physical Education: Coach Crane and Mr. A come once a week to foster further appreciation and development in the arts, and physically through music, rhythm, percussion, and perceptual motor activities.
Tablets are used in the classroom to enrich lessons and introduce proper use of technology.
We look forward to meeting you, and enjoying the wonder of kindergarten with your child!
