5K Reading and Phonics

The purpose of Kindergarten Reading and Language Development is to instill the love of learning through a non-pressured approach to independent reading.  Students will begin to build a solid phonetic base by learning beginning phonics rules and special sounds along with memorizing sight words to develop the necessary skills needed to read well.  The students will memorize poetry and also be exposed to good literature to encourage the children to think and build comprehension as well as strengthen their vocabulary skills.  They will continue to review skills learned throughout the year using various activities and games.
