Welcome to Kindergarten at Coyote Ridge Elementary! We are looking forward to working with you and your child throughout this school year. Kindergarten is a time of excitement, wonder, exploration, and discovery. We will open many doors and windows to learning-reading, writing, and thinking. We will develop reading and writing skills using Benchmark Advance and build math concepts using Everyday Math 4.

Our Second Step program supports social-emotional learning through growth-mindset, productive coping skills, empathy, and conflict-resolution in our classroom community. Kindergarten is a year of great academic growth as well as social-emotional strides. We feel the education of a child is a joint endeavor between the home and school. It’s a great day to be a Kindergartener at Coyote Ridge Elementary!

It’s hard to believe that this is the last month of school.  We have seen each and every one of our students learn and grow this year in kindergarten.  We couldn’t have done it without all of our amazing kindergarten families.

In literacy, we are starting our final unit in which we will return to studying how we make choices based on our needs and wants. We will explore this through informational texts, realistic fiction, and poetry. We will also be returning to writing narratives about events and experiences we have had. 

In our Everyday Math Program, our focus will be using shape and positional language along with developing spatial thinking and awareness through various activities.  Students will describe multiple measurable attributes of a single object and compare objects along various dimensions.  We will also be reinforcing important math concepts and skills from this year and continue to gain fluency with subtraction skills.

In Science we will be studying the patterns of weather, severe weather events, as well as the impact the Sun has on heating the Earth’s Surface.
