Kindergarten ELA

To learn and practice skills in ELA and literacy, we have developed theme-based units that incorporate social studies and science content. These studies allow students to develop foundational literacy skills, while addressing essential grade-level content.

Students will use Fundations, which is a systematic, foundational word study/phonics program that complements the theme-based units, RAZ-Plus, Decodable readers, Scholastic resources, and Starfall.

New learning at Kindergarten includes:

  • Understanding how stories and poems are the same and different

  • Separating the first, middle, and last sounds of simple words

  • Continuing a conversation by listening to other people‚Äôs ideas and asking questions to learn more about what they think

  • With help from an adult, using written words and drawings to express an opinion or give information about something
