Frassati Catholic Academy Kindergarten Highlights
Our kindergarten reading readiness program begins with high quality literature and a wide variety of enhancement materials. Students learn in a variety of settings including differentiated whole and small group instruction. The main components of the reading readiness program are phonemic awareness, concepts of print, phonics and decoding skills, rhyming words, high-frequency/sight words, comprehension skills, and vocabulary. In addition, children are given the opportunity to visit our school library and check out books.
The language arts program in kindergarten includes learning about the writing process. Handwriting is taught for letter formation and spacing. We do whole group and individual writing activities. We evaluate and monitor progression of writing skills.
