JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN (JK) 4 – 5 years old

A child’s feeling of independence and social interaction with others is what the JK class is all about. Our JK class revolves around the children learning to help themselves and getting along with others.
During the course of the day, children are encouraged to make choices for themselves, cooperate with others as well as listen and follow directions. During the course of the program, the classroom teachers lead the children in small and large group activities, such as movement, read-a-loud stories, circle time and art activities. The children are encouraged to make friends, share and communicate with their classmates using English language. Children are also prompted to use the bathroom on their own, although assistance is given if necessary.
In preparation for the SK class, the JK students expand more depth in phonics, blending, CVC words. They also study JK class’s sight words. This phonic learning lays good foundation to reading for upper grades.
Calendar time introduces them to the days of the week and the months of the year. Patterns, ordinal numbers, simple math and science activities are included in the weekly program.
Each child is sent home with a daily homework sheet that allows the student to practice more on their writing, and reading skills with their parents.
