When my daughter was in K, her experience fostered a love of learning and for school.
Sabrina’s kindergarten Experience consisted of: Hands on projects every day, learning through experiences, daily centers, basic letter sounds and words, a little independent reading at home , a lot of family reading, foundational math, patterns, colors, shapes, coloring, recess for 30 minutes, socialization, show and tell, no tests, homework related to letters 2x a week, and units such as the community and fire safety included field trips, had a thorough focus and students worked in groups and with the teachers. She always had a smile when I picked her up at the bus stop.
My son’s Kindergarten(2012-2013) experience has been hijacked.
