The foundation of learning starts in Kindergarten.
"Children Learn By Doing, And Play Is Their Work"
Teachers should take into consideration some important things while planning lessons and activities.
- The needs of all students
- State or Local standards
- The purpose of an activity
While school should be engaging and exciting, the expectations are changing. Many schools require students to read and write independently. Some schools want children to know 40 or more sight words.
This month-by-month guideline below will help meet those expectations. It includes reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. There are also monthly homework assignments that tie into the skills taught in class.
August - "The Kissing Hand", getting to know Kindergarten
September - Colors, fall, apples
October - The Earth, Families
November - Thanksgiving
December - Winter, Jan Brett
January - Polar Animals, Weather
February - Hearts
March - Farms
April - Spring
May - Animals and Ponds
