Calvert Kindergarten

Hands-on, interactive learning!

Students will refine reading skills with readaloud books and a phonics-based approach. Reading materials are integrated with Science and Social Studies for an interdisciplinary education. Math introduces students to numbers, shapes, problem solving, and ordering numbers.

English Language Arts:

Kindergartners learn to print and use their new skill to write about animals, their community, and create a book about weather. Children read engaging texts that introduce phonics skills and develop critical thinking.


Students observe patterns in the natural world to answer scientific questions, construct arguments with evidence to support claims, develop and use models, and communicate solutions to provide detail about scientific ideas. They learn about weather and create a weather forecast.

Social Studies:

The Social Studies curriculum introduces America’s historical figures, symbols, and holidays. Students learn about globes and maps by making their very own treasure map. Kids are introduced to jobs and money and learn how to write a resumé that highlights their special talents.


The focus is on counting up to 100, addition, subtraction, measuring, and shapes. Students engage in projects like making a number book to teach younger students, and measuring and weighing an item to ship it to a family in need. Students write in the colorful Math in Focus workbook and learn how to access grade-appropriate digital interactives.

Physical Education:

Lessons help young learners establish a basic understanding of health and fitness.


Students are introduced to the concepts of personal safety, healthy behaviors, nutrition, communication, disease prevention, basic anatomy, and physiology.

Course content subject to change.

Calvert’s full day Kindergarten program offers hands-on, interactive learning.
