Grade K students participate in Reading Workshop daily.  During our Reading Workshop, students are either reading independently or are buddy reading (partner reading).
Reading Workshop Launch Unit Goals:
Students will...

  • understand and follow the routines of reading time
  • make book choices that match their interests and purposes
  • share books and their thinking about books with a partner

In Kindergarten, we read by reading pictures, reading the words and retelling the story together.  

Students practice "partner reading" as they build reading stamina.


Constructive Play
Grade K students are given daily opportunities to "play".  Constructive play promotes creativity, collaboration, problem solving, social learning, sharing, cooperation, confidence, and self-control. Play develops a child's cognitive and social-emotional growth.



Grade K students will learn shapes, numbers, and how to add and subtract.  Lessons will emphasize

  • Knowing Numbers and Counting
  • Counting and comparing
  • Addition and Subtraction6
  • Measuring (length, width, weight)
  • Identifying Shapes

These students were playing "Monster Dice"; a math partner game that focuses on number recognition and counting.
