Welcome to Kindergarten Plus!
Kindergarten Plus is our all-day Kindergarten program where students spend the mornings with Mrs. Johnson and the second half of their day with our Kindergarten Plus teacher, Mrs. Davis.
I have been developing the K+ program over the last four years by incorporating curriculums I am familiar with, and I am always researching learning aids to meet the K+ student needs individually. The Kinder PLUS program has a lot of variety: it changes a bit each year as the interests of my students are unique, and I am determined find their age-appropriate levels of learning and their topics of interest to make their K+ time a rewarding one.
Kindergarten Plus Highlights
We follow the Kindergarten calendar and add on to it. The goal to keep the last half of students' days busy and productive with quiet time when needed.
We study CREATION (science/Bible art) at the beginning of the year.
We work on numbers/MATH, some games, puzzles and worksheets and computer skills (readying them for first grade EXTRA MATH)
A monthly BIBLE verse is studied in a fun and challenging way.
We have additional ALPHABET/phonics fun. We read entertaining and character building stories and sing songs that are age appropriate with a message they are eager to hear again and relate to.
We make a new PASSPORT notebook every month and explore the animals (science/ geography) in that country, the flag, the foods and costumes and whatever can make their learning fun. We enjoy finding out about other children in those countries and work to locate them on the world map.
