    Kindergarten Syllabus

    Course Description:

    Math: Students will demonstrate knowledge of counting, number sense, shapes, measurement, investigating and addition/subtraction.

    ELA/Writing: Students will demonstrate knowledge of writing, print concepts, phonological awareness, phonics and word recognition.

    Science/Health: Students will demonstrate knowledge of the world around them using their senses to make observations about matter, gravity, day/night, living/nonliving things, animals, plants, rocks and soils. Students will also learn the importance of health/safety.

    Social Studies: Students will demonstrate knowledge in themes that focus on culture, individuals, groups, locations, scarcity, time, change, and continuity.

     Instructional Philosophy:

    I believe that all students can learn.  I believe it is important to individually meet the needs of the student to maximize learning outcomes in the class. My instructional philosophy includes strategies that support whole group, small group, and independent learning.

    Major Course Goals:

    Math: Know number names and the count sequence, count to tell the number of objects, work with numbers 11-19 to gain foundations for place value, identify and describe shapes, describe and compare measureable attributes, and become fluent in addition/subtraction.
