Kindergarten Objectives

1st Quarter Kindergarten Objectives

Unit 2: Reading and Writing

Focusing on phonological awareness, students are challenged to listen for rhythm and rhyming words within the literature.  Concepts of print are taught as students read poems on wall charts, modeled writing, and in informational books.  Description of gathered objects and pictures highlight the secondary focus on color, encouraging rich description, discussion in spoken language, and vocabulary development.  In this early stage of writing, students use a combination of drawing, dictation, and writing to retell poems and stories.

  • We will retell a story.
  • We will tell the difference between a storybook and a poem.
  • We will tell that poems (poetry) are written by poets and that they often rhyme.
