  • This class is 8:30 to 3:00 on Monday & Wednesday.

Reading is a doorway to new worlds, imaginary characters, and a variety of places, people, and times. During our reading and language arts class, students will participate in Calendar Time, learning the days of the week, months of the year, patterns, weather, and more. We will also read a variety of children’s literature including favorites such as If You Give A Mouse a Cookie, Little Bear, Petunia, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and many more. Students will then engage in games, crafts, and even writing activities based on the books we read in class. We will sing songs, read poems, and have lots of fun with language-based activities. Through this hands-on, interactive approach to literature and language arts, hopefully, the kindergarten students will fall in love with books and reading giving them a solid foundation for their educational future.

Phonics & Handwriting

Whether your kindergartener knows all of their letters, knows how to write his or her name, or has no knowledge of letters and sounds, the Abeka Phonics program begins with introducing vowels and their short sounds, moves to each of the consonants and their sounds, and quickly begins teaching students how to blend these sounds together to make words. Students will progress from reading short vowel words like hat and big to sounding out words with long vowel sounds and consonant blends such us break and shade. With lots of hands-on activities in class along with songs, chants, and poems, learning Phonics will be fun! And the Abeka workbook provides plenty of review and reinforcement at home of the ideas presented in class. Handwriting will follow along with the letters we are learning in Phonics and soon students will be writing words and even sentences!
