Welcome to SS. Cyril and Methodius Kindergarten!

Graduating Class of 2024

In Kindergarten we teach the students the following:

Reading – We will utilize the Reading Wonders program this year for learning to read and write.  This program will combine small group and whole group lessons and we will read leveled readers throughout the year.

Writing – We use journals to practice combining reading and writing, using pictures to help us tell a story.  We write in journals at least twice a week.  We also write the letters as we learn their sound.

Mathematics – Our math program will introduce your students to numbers 0 – 100.  We will learn counting, number identification, shape, colors, sorting, patterning, and so much more!  Problem-solving skills are worked on throughout the year.

Religion – This year we will learn Christian ideals: caring, sharing, loving, helping, and the building of an impression of Jesus.

Social Studies – Using various books and materials, we will learn about ourselves as individuals, as part of a family, and as part of a community.  We will learn about family traditions and celebrations as well as American traditions, leaders, and historical events.  We will also being to locate areas of land and water on maps and globes.

Science – We will investigate and understand simple patterns in our daily lives, such as classroom routines and daily weather and season changes.  We will also begin to investigate and understand the needs of plants and animals.
