Oak Meadow’s Kindergarten curriculum reflects the openhearted and imaginative way that young children meet the world.
Oak Meadow curriculum is designed to be easy to use for the parent/teacher and the student. Assignments are clearly marked and explained in detail. A weekly planner, assignment checklist, and materials list for each lesson helps you plan your week in advance and budget your time and resources. (Families are encouraged to use our main lesson books to document their student’s work.) Comprehensive learning assessments are included at the end of each lesson to help you document your student’s progress, recognize your student’s strengths and areas where more support is needed, and track learning over time.
A rich tradition of oral language and classic stories provides the backdrop for your child’s first exploration into the world of literacy. Each week students are immersed in a language-rich environment as they listen to stories, recite poetry, and learn new songs. Familiarity with individual letters is achieved through activities that engage the student artistically, physically, and musically. Emphasis is placed on integrating the sounds and shapes of each letter in preparation for First Grade.
In Math, students are gently introduced to the world of numbers through play-based activities, crafts, and storytelling. Math skills are fostered through working with patterns, grouping and sorting, and learning to draw geometric shapes.
Science, Arts & Crafts, Music & Movement, and Health round out the Kindergarten experience. Each week students participate in nature walks, watercolor painting, puppetry, storytelling, circle songs and games, cooking, gardening, movement activities, and imitative games.
A healthy, nurturing rhythm of learning is established that will serve you and your child for years to come.
