Name of Teacher: Shelley White

Suitable ages, abilities, or skill levels for this class: Must be 5 years old when
class starts to be in the Kindergarten class.
Description and Objectives of this class: The kindergarten class will focus on the
development of skills in preparation for higher learning in the following areas:
Science: We will be reading various science books throughout the year. We will be
learning about some of the fascinating animals God has created.
Math: In the morning we will focus on learning the days of the week, months of the year,
counting by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s. We will focus on number recognition, writing
numerals, number sequencing, time by the hour and half-hour, patterns, sorting, and
identifying coins and their value.
Reading and Writing: We will review letters and sounds every week. We will have
letter activities every morning. We will begin writing words and then progress to one or
more sentences. We will have activities where I share the pen and allow students to
participate in writing activities with the class. We will practice blending sounds together
to make words. We will be reading aloud to your child frequently throughout the day.
Hearing stories read aloud increases your child’s reading and listening comprehension.
These skills will transfer easily when your child begins to read independently.
Free play: We will have free play activities for the children in the afternoon. They can
choose a variety of toys, books, blocks, and art projects for creative play.
