Kindergarten Prep Class Description

Our Kindergarten Prep. (K-Prep) class uses a DLM curriculum made up of nine four week themes. These themes provide learning instruction on varying topics about creatures, families, literature, construction, and imagination. The curriculum introduces skills such as prediction/comprehension of stories, sequencing, exploration, rhyming, and opposites.

We use the Voyages religion curriculum for our Bible time every day. We spend an entire week on different stories from the Bible and attend chapel twice each week.

Phonics is an important part of the day, as the children are exposed to letter recognition and sounds through individual centers, small group activities, and whole class instruction. They are exposed to pre-reading skills, but are encouraged to develop at their own pace.

Math is integrated into many of the activities each day through varying activities. We use our calendar, pocket chart, counting sticks, and many manipulativies to understand skills such as sorting, graphing, counting, patterning, adding, and subtracting.

The children attend music classes for 30 minutes each week and have the opportunity to work on a computer in the classroom. To vary and enhance the learning experiences, we have class speakers on various topics.
