Junior Kindergarten

The Junior Kindergarten is a class offered to children who turn five by mid October and who would benefit from a focused year of curriculum and longer day as they prepare to head off to Kindergarten. This class incorporates many components. Wilson Language curriculum focuses on phonic awareness and sounds, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Hands on letter formation and guided handwriting instruction help writing come naturally, while letter sounds and recognition are continually reviewed and built on for a pre-writing foundation. Every Day Math helps students master concepts through hands on materials, learning models, and number application and representation. Literacy and Music are incorporated to help cement number sense and conceptual knowledge. Science focuses on seasons and the changes they bring to living animals and their life cycles, while Social Studies moves through our community, from home to school.
