    This promises to be an exciting year ahead as we enter the Kinder-Garden!
    
    We are thrilled to continue our Balanced Literacy Initiative with the Reader's Workshop and Writer's Workshop models. We are all readers and will practice reading different 
    types of stories and informatonal books. Each student will learn how to become a "writer" and perform as "writers" do. We will learn different genres of writing and have many opportunities to practice our new craft! This year we will begin a new Math Series. GOMath! is a sequential approach to mathematical practices and concepts.
    We will also continue to use the Zaner-Bloser model of handwriting. It is a vertical form of writing letters and numbers.

    The Science curriculum is a combination of FOSS - a hands-on program and Discovery Science for a technological aspect.

    Social Studies deals with Myself, Myself in My Family, Myself in Geography and Myself in My Country. We are looking forward to a wonderful, exciting year in Kindergarten! Enjoy! :)
