In kindergarten, students will learn to read and write uppercase and lowercase letters and orally produce the beginning sounds for the letters. They will also work on phonemic awareness skills such as rhyming, segmenting, and blending sounds of words. With these skills, the students will be able to decode words with the consonant/vowel/ consonant word pattern. Students will also learn the basics of print concepts such as reading and writing from left to right and top to bottom. Kindergarten students will also learn reading comprehension strategies and high frequency words.
