Kindergarten

Kindergarten is a year of hands-on mathematical exploration and discovery. Some of the mathematical concepts we cover in kindergarten are:
Number and Numeration Measurement
– Sorting
– Length, height, width
– Sets
– Mass
– Counting
– Temperature
– Estimating
– Time
– Money
– Shapes

Operations
Probability
– Sequence Patterns
– Word problems Graphs

Real life situations are integrated into all areas of the math curriculum.

Math is incorporated into our daily routines. Working on the calendar, lining up, taking lunch orders, and attendance are all wonderful ways to experience math!

Science
Children learn about science through hands-on experiences. Science is integrated into the kindergarten curriculum through units such aslife science, magnets, sink/float, balance, and the five senses.

Life Science
– the study of living and nonliving things and seasons.

Balance and Magnets
Sink/Float

The Five Senses

Classroom lessons may include related literature, discussions, experiments and/or projects designed to develop a better understanding of science. Children draw and write in their science journals to record observations, responses and make predictions about different topics. Science instruction promotes discovery and encourages children’s natural curiosity about the world around them.

Social Studies
In kindergarten, the students begin to develop an awareness of themselves and the world around them. The kindergarten social studies program focuses on learning about the students’ immediate world. Themes such as “Myself and Others”, “My School and School Community”, “My Neighborhood”, and “The World Around Us” are addressed.

Native Americans

Throughout the year the classes discuss various cultures and their celebrations. Time is also spent learning about famous Americans, the environment, and map skills. Emphasis is placed on topics that help children learn about respect and tolerance of others.

Greek Education
Your Child will continue to grow more familiar with the Greek culture, language and religion. Students will be exposed to songs, fairytales and conversational workshops.
