At Northside we welcome our Kindergarten students with smiles and warm hearts. Throughout the school year each student will experience many fun events including parades, a year-end program, fieldtrips, and special visitors from our wonderful community.
Kindergarten curriculum covers all subjects with an emphasis on reading and math. The kindergarten experience begins with learning all letter names out of sequence, and sounds. Students are required to learn 50 sight words, will blend simple words and read approximately 50 level readers during the school year. Math goals for kindergarten include naming 2D and 3D shapes, counting to 100 by ones and tens, identifying numbers 0-20, and ordering numbers to 20. Students are also required to add and subtract fluently.
Kindergarten classrooms are all equipped with student computers, iPads, and daily centers or stations for students to enjoy. Math manipulatives are used daily to enrich the learning experience along with a math meeting board. Students attend daily activities including Library, Physical Education, Guidance, Computer Lab, and Music.
