PROGRAM DETAILS:

Once you have signed up for the May program, we will schedule a one-on-one assessment using the Kindergarten Diagnostic Instrument.  This is a comprehensive, yet time efficient screening instrument designed to assess developmental readiness skills for children entering Kindergarten.  It provides a strong look at your child’s learning profile in the verbal and non-verbal areas.  We also will sit down with you, as parents, to discuss the assessment results.

This assessment will also help us to develop an individualized plan for those twenty days for your child.  It will provide an opportunity to spend more time in the areas of “early literacy development” and preparing your child for greater success in school and the increasing demands of kindergarten.  This includes handwriting, phonological awareness, vocabulary and sight words, and other pre-reading skills.

These twenty days will include significant exposure to the Dolche words.  These are a list of common sight words that children must learn from memory, as most do not follow phonic rules.  We also will extend the phonic awareness to understanding the “blending” of sounds that form words.

Handwriting and writing text on an age appropriate level will be concentrated on, including proper pencil grip.  In addition, we will help your child write and illustrate their own book.

Mathematical concepts that have been introduced in Georgia Pre-K but can be expanded upon, this includes: modeling addition and subtraction, grouping by properties, measurement concepts (distance, length, time, weight, etc.) and beginning math problem solving.  All this done at their individual level.

In addition, we are able to provide a Graduation Day for your child at the end of May.  This is one of those priceless moments that provide memories for a lifetime.  Graduation will be held on Friday, May 25th in the afternoon.
