Through classroom discussions, Kindergarten students are able to produce and expand complete sentences in shared language activities. They can confidently ask and answer questions in order to seek help, get information or clarify something that is not understood. Students are beginning to demonstrate understanding of frequently occurring verbs and adjectives by relating them to their opposites. The kindergarteners can follow agreements for discussions (e.g., listening to others and taking turns speaking about the topics and texts under discussion).

Kindergarten students are truly diving into the world of literacy as they begin to recognize different genres of literacy. They are able to recognize the relationship between illustrations and text and can compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in different stories. With prompting and support, students are able to identify the reasons an author gives to support points in a text.

 Kindergarteners are beginning to read and can recognize and write upper and lower case letters. They are able to associate long and short vowel sounds in common words and are beginning to read age appropriate texts. Students are using a combination of drawing, dictating and writing to compose opinion, informative, and narrative pieces.

Kindergarten students are strengthening their number skills as they practice counting to 100 by 1s and 10s, count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence, and identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group. They are beginning to grasp the concept of estimation through work with tangible manipulatives. The Kindergarteners are able to identify 2D and 3D shapes and are beginning to put shapes together to build complex structures.

Kindergarten students are beginning to understand that some materials are changeable. They conceptualize that water can be a liquid or a solid and can be made to change back and forth from one form to another, and that changes in weather occur from day to day and across seasons, affecting the Earth and people. Through science experiments and journaling, students are communicating observations orally and through drawings.

Social Studies
Kindergarten students are beginning to hone their map skills as they determine the relative locations of objects using the terms near/far, left/right, and behind/ in front. They can distinguish land and water on maps and globes and are encouraged to construct maps and models of their own neighborhood. They are gaining confidence in their role within the MUSE community and are able to understand and appreciate the roles of other members of the community, as well.
