Welcome!!! On August 15th, your child will experience one of the most important milestones in his/her life... the first day of Kindergarten! Your child will have a full year of exciting learning experiences. It is a new world for the kindergartner as he or she begins on the wonderful road of learning.
We place a high priority on parent involvement, so join us in helping make "your" school a true community! It will be a most rewarding adventure for you and your child!
By the end of Kindergarten your child will:
* Identify all upper and lower case letters of the alphabet within one minute
* Master all consonant and short vowel sounds
* Recognize 67 High Frequency Words
* Read and write independently
* Read, write and count up to 30 (although, most children leaving kindergarten will write and count to 100)
* Simple addition and subtraction
As you can see, we have many skills to master. To prepare your child for the busy year ahead, please work on the following:
* Write his or her name
* Identify and write numbers to 10
* Name and describe shapes (circle, square, triangle, rectangle)
* Recognize primary colors
* Practice the letters and sounds of the alphabet
We are looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year with you and your child!
