Academics by Grade Level

This is a break down of what you student is learning in each grade level and what is expected of them. 

IN OUR KINDER CLASSROOM 

  • The Kindergarten team will work with students and their  families to support success in reading and math. Some of  our key connections with families will be: 
  • ∙ Utilize the daily take home folder that will be sent home to review sight words, 100’s chart, shapes,  and coin chart. 
  • ∙ Encourage families to read together nightly for a  minimum of 20 minutes.

School Expectations for Student  Achievement 

  • ∙ All students will make continual progress in Reading. (Must be  at a Level D to be promoted. Must know a minimum of 25 sight words.) 
  • ∙ All students will increase math performance through use of  Guided Math. (Must be able to count to 100, solve problems to  10, recognize and write numbers to 20.) 
  • ∙ Writer’s Workshop will be used to increase all student’s  writing performance. (Must be able to write my first name and write a complete sentence by the end of the year.) 
  • ∙ Increase family participation to help student success.
