Kindergarten English Course Outline

Kindergarten English Course Outline

Following the Common Core State Standards for kindergarten English, this class demonstrates grammatically correct speaking and writing, along with correct capitalization, spelling, and punctuation while writing.

Students’ vocabulary is improved upon by clarifying words with multiple meanings and how words in a sentence relate to each other. The students will learn phonics to sound out words while reading. The students will be exposed to emergent-reader books and asked to answer questions about the plot, key ideas, and details of story. Students will be able to explain relationships between text and the illustrations, compare and contrast two different books on the same topic, and participate in group reading activities.

By the end of the class, students should be comfortable holding collaborative discussions about age-appropriate topics, be able to answer questions about a story read aloud to them, be comfortable asking for help or clarification on a topic, and be able to tell a story through a combination of text, drawings, and spoken words.
