Kindergarten is a very important step in a child's life. Kindergarden prepares children for group collaborations as well as the 1st grade curriculum. You are welcome to join us on Friday for Show and Tell. We would love to have you join the Miramonte family!
By the end of Kindergarten, students understand the consistency of small numbers and simple shapes in their everyday environment. They count, compare, describe and sort objects.
- Language Arts
Kindergarteners spend time learning letters and letter sounds. They use this knowledge to read simple sentences. Kindergarten students also learn how to write simple words and sentences correctly . In addition to reading and writing, students gain oral communication skills by practicing listening and speaking.
- Physical Education
Children develop large and small muscles through body movement activities in PE class four times a week.
- Fine Arts
Students create meaningful visual art and experience performing arts by doing skits and puppet shows. Music and movement activities occur daily, and weekly music classes teach children singing, classroom instruments, and rhythmic skills.
Weekly trips to the computer lab help Kindergarteners develop basic computer skills.
- Social Studies, Science, and Bible
