Kindergarten Lesson Plans Overview

Readiness

At this age, there can be great variation in abilities - especially in language arts. No independent reading or writing is expected this year. If your student is reading or writing independently, great. If not, do not worry; just keep practicing. The same concepts are revisited in different ways throughout the year to give review and extra practice. If your student does not catch on the first time around, he or she might later in the year. For math, give as much help as you feel is necessary. These concepts will be revisited next year.

Amount of Time

Each day’s lesson has enough activities to for 45-90 minutes of school. If your child is enjoying a particular activity, let him or her continue. If your student is bored or tired, move on to something else or take a break. The lessons are not designed to be a burden for you or your student.

Supplementing

What happens if your child wants more? Choose some of the themes from the lessons and get books from the library for your child to browse. Read favorite storybooks out loud. Videos are also a terrific option. Give free access to basic art supplies such as paper, crayons, and stickers. Visit museums and nature centers.

Themes

In Bible, you and your student will read regularly from Genesis, Psalms, and Proverbs. In math, he or she will learn number recognition, addition, subtraction, time, and money. History/social studies covers different cultures both past and present. Science emphasizes God’s creation. Language arts teaches phonological awareness, decoding, encoding, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and print handwriting. In art, your child will be exposed to fine arts and develop an appreciation. Music focuses on silly sing-alongs to classical pieces.

Flexibility

This program is designed to meet your needs. It is set up with a 36-week, 180-day lesson plan. In the last few weeks, you will find fewer activities so that you can catch up or explore other areas of interest. This program seeks to give you the tools to meet your child’s educational needs.

Record Keeping

Purchase a large three-ring binder and one divider for each subject. File worksheets, drawings, copywork, and things that you have written down for the child as a record of learning. If you would like to add more content, pick a topic and help the student write sentences about it. Include pictures of completed projects and experiments. Consider videoing plays, activities, or speeches. Check with your state to see what is expected for recording attendance and learning.
