Kindergarten Begins at Cairo

Students in Mrs. Laura Bates' kindergarten class begin learning from the first day of school.

  • Students are working on the numbers 0-5 - reading them, writing them, and putting them in order.

    Students are sorting objects by size, color and shape; copying and extending patterns; and working with shapes - squares, circles, triangles, ovals, and rectangles.

  • In the area of language arts, students have started the "Read Well Program" which covers the five essential components of beginning reading instruction: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and text comprehension

In addition to academics, these youngsters also are learning school rules and policies; school, bus and stranger safety; and empathy training.

(Perhaps it's true - everything one REALLY needs to know is learned in kindergarten!)
