Make new friends!
Much of your Kindergartner’s learning takes place through his or her social interactions. While teaching the core subjects of reading, writing, and arithmetic are important, developmentally students between the ages of 3 and 6 are absorbing so much new information through play and social connections with peers. Therefore, educators and parents must not discount the value of social skills development through play. Click the button below to read an interesting article about this topic.
Each bi-weekly lesson taught in our Young Pioneers Kindergarten class focuses on a specific character trait. Often times, a fun game or activity is used to demonstrate the trait to give students a more concrete understanding as well as an opportunity to practice! When discussing HELPFULNESS, for example, a fun partner activity ensues in which one child is blindfolded and the other is the guide. The guide must lead the blindfolded partner successfully through a series of obstacles- So. Much. FUN! Some of the traits we cover throughout the year are DILIGENCE, GRATITUDE, COMPASSION, SELF-CONTROL, ATTENTIVENESS, and many others! Check out the video to see character building in action!
