Literacy, JK

Building on skills learned in PK3, our Junior Kindergarten students focus on phonemic awareness authentically through daily classroom routines and activities. Additionally, they learn to recognize and spell snap words and high-frequency sight words, understand rhyming words, and express their learning through pictures and sentences in writing journals. Students also participate in morning meeting messages from teachers to students and daily read-aloud books and independent book choices. Communication skills continue to be a focus in JK as students participate in collaborative conversations and express their thoughts and feelings appropriately. Each day, students are encouraged to communicate by asking and answering questions to gain information, seek help or clarify something that is not understood. In addition, students are taught to understand and apply techniques such as following directions, being respectful listeners and JK community members, gaining independence and learning to be responsible for their own needs.
