Kindergarten is a journey, not a race! Your child will have the entire year to master the standards assessed through GKIDS, which is an ongoing assessment. Common Core Georgia Performance Standards drive the instruction for kindergarten. Students will receive instruction in reading, math, and writing. All subjects are taught with a mix of whole group and small group instruction. Reading instruction is taught in flexible groups within the classroom based upon a collection of on-going data. Science and social studies are embedded in the curriculum. I am happy to be working with Ms. Carol Shelton again this year. She will serve as the paraprofessional in our classroom. She and I are excited to work with the boys and girls in our classroom.
