Kindergarten Learning Goals


These goals are suggestions based on state standards. As always, each child learns differently and at a different pace, this is to act as a guide for subjects and also help with the order of presenting info to your learner. Kindergarten should be play based learning, rigorous academics are not suggested.


During their kindergarten education, students will focus on nailing down their letters, sounds, and words, which will get them started on reading sight words and writing simple sentences. Fundamental math skills will also be of major focus and include skills such as counting by 1s, 2s, 5s, 10s, basic addition and subtraction, and identifying shapes, just to name a few.

A complete kindergarten curriculum will include reading, writing, and art as well as the typical science, math and language arts.
