Kindergarten is an exciting and very special time in a child's life. Here at Wilson School we strive to create a nurturing environment where each child loves to learn. We promote kindness, respect and caring for one another.

In Kindergarten each week, the students will learn a new letter and sound. The students blend sounds to read words too. We have a wonderful math program called Only the Numbers Count, which teaches our students different ways to look at numbers, and to begin adding numbers together very quickly in Kindergarten. They will learn numbers to 100, addition, subtraction and ways to measure in math too. The Kindergarten has a great writing program called Writing City. You will see your child begin to write 1 to 2 sentences by June.

Each day we have center time in Kindergarten. During this time, each student works in learning centers to reinforce concepts taught in math, language arts, phonics, writing, science or social studies. We use hands-on activities during center time each day.
