ACS Kindergarten Literacy Library

Welcome to another rewarding school year! Our literacy library is a warm, comfortable environment for our students. We are so excited to meet and work with you and your rising kindergartener!
During their library time, students will have opportunities to practice the reading, writing, and phonics skills that they are learning in the classroom.  
You can help your child prepare for kindergarten by filling your home with reading materials: books, newspapers, magazines, comics, mail, captions on the TV, cereal boxes and recipes. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to do this! Also, utilize the Leonia library and their website Leonialibrary.org. You will find many ebooks available for free. Libby is great for children.

Kindergarten Music

Kindergarten Music

Kindergarten music class is a fun environment that allows children to explore their musical talents and creativity! Our program focuses on the element of play in music. This is achieved through the use of movement, games, dancing, puppets, stories and a variety of instruments. There is also a large component of vocal development at this age.
Classes are held once a week for 45 minutes. Our lessons are carefully crafted with the young child’s development in mind. Lessons are developed to allow children to express themselves freely in a welcoming and uplifting space. Music lessons reinforce important literacy, math and social skills. Students are introduced to a variety of different genres and multicultural music to help broaden their musical repertoire.

Kindergarten Social Emotional Learning

Kindergarten Wevengers

Kindergarten students have worked on building their feelings vocabulary while problem solving solutions to getting along in kindergarten. Stories and role play activities were ways we interacted on building our community skills! At our community campfires, we built on listening and following directions. We also joined our first grade members signing songs of kindness! We are always finding ways to be kind!
