Kindergarteners are very curious little people! They want to learn all about the world and how it works. Kindergarten classrooms are where children learn to become comfortable working in a formal school setting.
Kindergarteners begin to take note of all of the words around them. They play with language by creating silly rhymes and nonsense words, and teachers read a variety of poems, stories, and non-fiction books aloud to the children.
Counting cubes, number rods, and other math materials help kindergarteners work with larger sets of numbers. They begin to learn how to solve simple addition and subtraction problems using physical materials and drawing pictures.
Kindergarteners study plants and animals and explore the weather and seasons in science. They use simple experiments to become acquainted with the process of scientific inquiry, and are now capable of remembering more information and using it to make connections between things.
