Transdisciplinary Concepts: form, function, causation, change, perspective, connection, responsibility
Language / Literacy Skills: Students will practice writing, start to practice cursive, they will discover how the letters combine, phonetic awareness, will express their opinions and inquiries, structure language and learn syntactic structures. They will begin to participate in a series of dramatic activities, will understand the correlation between letters and sound, and start to read and understand familiar print.
Math Skills: Kindergarteners will start building the tools to prepare for Grade 1, as well as to structure one’s thinking. They will focus on representing and comparing whole numbers, initially with sets of objects; and on describing shapes and space. More learning time in Kindergarten will be devoted to numeracy, learning counting and decomposition, constructing and deconstructing numbers, and beginning the discovery of algorithms.
