Kindergarten (K5)

Students' natural curiosity and excitement for learning is expanded through interesting and engaging lessons.  Building upon an early foundation in phonics, students will learn to read one- and two-vowel word stories, as well as stories with more difficult phonics special sounds.  Eye-hand coordination is developed as students learn to write individual letters, followed by consonant-vowel blends and  complete sentences.  Students learn to count, recognize, and understand number concepts to 100 and number combination families 1 - 10.  Vocabulary, language, and cognitive skills, as well as character and social development instruction are included in this comprehensive curriculum.
