  • Mathematics & Science

    • We have adopted Pearson enVision as our math program.

    • Math Objectives: counting, sorting, number recognition, number sense, geometry, algebraic thinking.

    • In math, we use many different hands-on activities and manipulatives to help the children gain a concrete foundation for math concepts. You won’t see a lot of math papers, because tasks are mostly hands-on.

    • AMSTI Science modules include Trees, Weather, Living Things, and Balls and Ramps


    Math Assessments

    Formal math assessments are given four times a year, but monitored throughout the year.

    See the Kindergarten Parent Information Guide.


    Kindergarten Report Card

    Things you should know and what you can expect!

    Kindergarten Report Card

    • A six week Progress Report will be sent home in September. Then Progress Reports will come home every four weeks.

    • Report Cards will be sent home every nine weeks.

    • Please sign all Progress Reports and Report Cards and send them back to school.

    • All standards will appear on the Report Card but may not be assessed each time. If it is not being assessed it will be marked with a /.

    • Please refer to the Report Card Parent Information Sheet.


    Understanding Reports

    • Kindergarten Report Cards do not reflect letter grades given on assignments. Instead, the numbers 3, 2, and 1 show student progress made on skills to be mastered by the end of the Kindergarten year.

      3- consistently demonstrates mastery (standard met)

      2-progressing towards mastery (standard not met)

      1- insufficient progress toward mastery (standard not met)

      /- Standard not assessed


    What to Expect from Reports

    • Remember that Kindergarten Report Cards DO NOT reflect grades given on assignments, so a 3 is not equivalent to an A+.

    • 2 will be the most common, because it indicates that your child is making appropriate progress. A 3 will not appear until your child is consistently and independently showing mastery of a standard. Details of progress will be communicated through parent/teacher conferences.


    Conferences

    Conferences are typically held twice a year; however, teachers and parents may see the need for additional conferences throughout the year.

    • Fall

    • Spring

      * If you want to schedule a conference at any time please contact your child’s teacher, and we will be happy to meet with you!
