Kindergarten

Children reading books
  • A Farnsworth kindergartner’s imagination is our best asset in the classroom. Their eagerness to explore their ideas and try new things is our power supply. Every day we get together to learn new things, solve new problems, play and become great friends. By the end of the year our fledglings are confident, and ready to learn to fly.

    Our Kindergarten classrooms implement a strong standards based curriculum including:

    • Reader’s Workshop
    • Writer’s Workshop
    • Everyday Math
    • Social Studies
    • Developmentally Appropriate
    • Science Activities
    • Aerospace and Aviation

    In Kindergarten, we begin with the study of day and night. That leads to our Spacey Alphabet where we learn aerospace vocabulary from A - Z.

    Next we focus on our aerospace pioneer, Amelia Earhart. Finally, we learn more about flight through the study of birds. Throughout the year we also explore aerospace through play and by using our imaginations.
