Kindergarten is a year of celebrations. It is where we begin the journey of lifelong learning. Children are beginning to see themselves as readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, and responsible citizens.
As we share about our lives and read about our world, we discover strategies to become independent readers and writers.
Throughout the year, fiction and informational texts guide us through cross-curricular investigations. We may sketch a pumpkin as artists, dissect it as scientists, and estimate and count its seeds as mathematicians.
Milestones of firsts enhance our journey; including our authors’ celebrations, field trips and school community experiences.
By spring, children have grown into students who are eager and avid learners, who are passionate about sharing ideas and whose voices can inspire.
