Class Experience

Four- to five-year-olds learn best by engaging with others and playing. Therefore, our learning goals are based on the children's developmental milestones and the foundational skills that will best prepare them for reading, writing, math, and social-emotional skills. 
The BIG goals:
1. Students will be able to identify all letters of the alphabet and their sounds
2. Students will be able to count to 25 independently, count to 50 using a number chart, and count to 100 by 5s and 10s (using a number chart and/or body movements)
3. Students will "be a good listener and speaker" (taking turns to talk/raising hand, actively participating, helping peers, being kind)

Secondary Goals:
4. Students will be able to identify 5 basic shapes and describe them: circle, triangle, square, rectangle, rhombus (diamond)
5. Students will be able to sing or recite the days of the week and the months of the year and utilize a calendar
6. Students will be able to identify the beginning, middle, and end sounds in a spoken word
7. Students will be able to subitize to 10 (identify a number of objects without counting)

OPTIONAL Activities: If you would like, you can supplement our reading and learning in class by reading some of our read-aloud books with your child at home. Listening to stories and discussing the book is an excellent foundational reading skill! You can also practice counting, colors, and shapes with your little one to boost their foundational math skills! 
Small whiteboard 3 whiteboard markers; at least one black marker Whiteboard eraser (a clean sock works well for this!) If we are doing a special or holiday activity, I will provide a supply list in advance of the lesson.
Learners' progress will be assessed through both formal and informal assessments throughout the semester.

I believe in education that is developmentally appropriate, and I want to create a learning environment that feels safe and engaging for my students. We should let kids be kids! 

Therefore, this kindergarten class will have academic assessments that are age-appropriate and built into our learning routines. Although I will be assessing their academic progress, they will be in the form of easy "quizzes", games, and activities without any stressful "testing" situations. In addition, I will be taking observational notes and informal assessments of your child's overall progress during class and will share this information with you, the family. 
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Safety note: For this class, students will be doing a variety of activities that reinforce the concepts they learn, including movement. This means that there will be times where your child might be standing, sitting, moving their arms or legs, or doing light physical tasks such as stretches.  

Please make sure that your learning environment includes extra space for your child to do these activities. I always aim to be inclusive, so if your child needs any modifications due to their mobility or any other reason, please let me know.
