Kindergarten Curriculum

Teaching kindergarten curriculum can be fun for the teacher and the students. Children learn many things in kindergarten, including social skills and basic coordination skills. It’s  important for teachers to monitor their students’ progress throughout the school year. Students report cards usually reflect their progress with certain skills. The report card will also show how parents can help their children improve those skills.

The basic social skills included in the kindergarten curriculum teach students how to share and how to properly take turns in activities. Students will learn how to express good sportsmanship, and will learn what it means to have friendship. The students will also be taught about what family means to their life, and usually kindergarten curriculum includes having students draw a picture of their family. Developing friendships may be a new experience for many kindergartners, so teachers should advocate socialization to their students. The young students should also be supervised during social activities, and should be rewarded for acts of friendship and kindness.

Basic coordination skills are also included in kindergarten curriculum. The most important coordination skill taught to kindergartners is hand-eye coordination. Hand-eye coordination is a key skill needed when learning to tie shoes. Young children will benefit from learning these skills in the classroom. The children can practice hand-eye coordination by coloring inside the lines of a picture and cutting picture out for art projects. Learning to write their names, will also improve students’ hand-eye coordination. Students also learn to read and write simple words, and learn basic math skills.

Teachers will also have to evaluate their students’ performance in all areas. Report cards should always include a grading scale of good, satisfactory, or needs improvement. The grading scale for kindergarten classes is a simple way for parents to see their child’s progression. It’s always important for teachers to make notes about students improvement, and to reward them for improving. Encouragement is the biggest part of kindergarten curriculum, the children should always know when they’re doing well, and teachers should always encourage them to do better.
