Name: Nikki Coney
Homeroom: Room 1
Planning time: 12:13-1:05pm
My Young Fives Kindergarten class is for Kindergarten age students who may have a late fall birthday or who are developmentally or socially not ready for Kindergarten.
I teach the Kindergarten curriculum at a slower pace than a traditional Kindergarten class and go at the student's pace.
For example, I teach one letter a week where as the traditional Kindergarten class teaches two letters a week. I only focus on numbers 1-20 where as in traditional Kindergarten students are expected to learn numbers 1-30.
I do have my students reading and writing sentences by the end of the year and they know 30 basic sight words.
I feel that the students who come from Young Fives go into Kindergarten with a strong foundation for their future learning experience here at Centreville Elementary.
