Borah Elementary

Borah Lions ROAR!

We invest in each student to prepare, challenge and advance well-educated, resilient and future-ready citizens.

  • Welcome to Kindergarten! 

    Each child enters Kindergarten with different strengths and will progress at a different pace.  Our goal is to help the children learn as much as possible in a meaningful and enjoyable way.

          We offer two programs for our Kindergarten students. One is an all day Kindergarten. This involves a small group of students who need extra help in reading readiness skills. The students are enrolled in morning Kindergarten. They stay for lunch and then work with Miss Harris in the afternoon on a variety of literacy skills. 
           We created this page to share with you what is happening in the Kindergarten rooms at Borah. Kindergartners are busy learning:

    • Language Arts (letters and sounds, rhyming, guided reading, printing letters and writing)
    • Math (calendar, counting, patterns, graphing, understanding numbers)
    • Units of Study (Social Studies, Science, Health)
    • Technology (keyboarding, mouse skills, Waterford Reading Program)
    • Most of the kindergarten learning is done through themes that integrate District 271's curriculum for Kindergarten.
