Kindergarten

What makes WCA Kindergarten special?
Students learn the fruits of the spirit. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things
there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23 We have a daily Bible lesson and songs, and
kindergarteners perform in two chapels each year. Good behavior, polite manners, and
kindness toward one another are highly encouraged and praised.

 

Students who enter kindergarten with varying skill levels learn to read! We learn a new
letter and sound each week. Early in the school year, we begin blending and reading words.  By the end of kindergarten, students are able to read and write sentences by themselves!  We write in our journals daily. Students learn grammar, including nouns, verbs, pronouns,and adjectives.

 

We start with the basics in Math—learning to write numbers 1-10, sorting, and patterning.  By the end of kindergarten, many students are able to write to 100! Some topics of study:  1-dimensional and 2-dimensional shapes, writing numbers in a forward and backward sequence, adding and subtracting, identifying and counting coins, using a balance scale, graphing, and skip counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s. We play a lot of math games and have fun!


Students enjoy hands-on activities in Science, whether it be sorting the five food groups, experimenting with our five senses, or making peanut butter balls when we study George Washington Carver. We also enjoy planting seeds in our own terrariums to watch the water cycle at work, visiting Botanica as we study plants, and making and flying paper airplanes as we learn about the Wright Brothers.

 

In Social Studies, students enjoy time in our class wigwam as we study Native Americans.  Kindergarteners wear Pilgrim hats as we celebrate the first Thanksgiving. We go on a tour at Tractor Supply as we learn about goods, services, wants and needs. Marching around the classroom is fun as we wear our tri-corn hats and dance to Yankee Doodle when we learn about George Washington. We learn the seven continents as we take a trip around the world, enjoying snacks from different countries and writing in our own passports as we go.
