Dear Family Member:
Kindergarten has high academic expectations, and students are also learning to be good students: how to do their best even when it's hard, how to be kind to others, and how to learn.
We learn 40 words BY SIGHT (not blending or sounding out!).
We learn all the letters, capital and lowercase, and their sounds. We also learn the sounds of the letter combinations th, sh, ch.
We learn to read consonant-vowel-consonant words fluently (such as cat, dog, sit).
We learn to count out loud to 100 without any mistakes.
We learn to write our numbers to 20, and read these number by sight, even when they're out of order.
We learn to add and subtract up to 5 (ex: 4+0, 3+1, 4-2, 2+3, 3-2...) and learn to make any "Teen" number (10-19) as a representation of 10 + x.
