Welcome to Kindergarten! Kindergarteners at Winton come to school for a full day.
Kindergarten is a year of amazing growth and development! This year, we will:
*learn how to work together in our school community.
*identify letter names and letter sounds.
*print uppercase and lowercase letters.
*learn and apply concepts of print (examples: follow words from left to right, spaces between words,...).
*increase our phonological awareness (examples: hearing sounds in a word, rhyming words,...).
*learn and apply phonics and word analysis skills (examples: one-to-one letter-sound correspondence, reading common high-frequency words,...).
*read a range of texts, then ask and answer questions, retell, compare and contrast, and/or describe relationships within the story.
*read emergent-reader texts!
*participate in shared writing projects and individual writing.
*count to 100.
*identify and write numbers 0-20.
*identify and analyze 2-D and 3-D shapes.
*solve addition and subtraction up to 10, using objects or drawings.
We look forward to a great year! You will have lots of opportunities to visit us at Winton. Please look for information every Thursday in your child's Thursday Folder.
