A kindergarten reading strategy includes writing of words and brief sentences using language arts lessons and language arts worksheets. Kindergarten students are expected to write legibly using both uppercase and lowercase letters of the alphabet independently, attending to the form and proper spacing of the letters.
The kindergarten reading strategy encourages children to use letters and phonetically spelled words to write about experiences, stories, people, objects, or events. They are taught to write consonant-vowel-consonant word and the reading teacher guides them to write by moving from left to right and from top to bottom. Children at the kindergarten level are also taught to spell independently by using pre-phonetic knowledge, sounds of the alphabet, and a knowledge of letter names.
Kindergarten Reading Strategy and Curriculum Standards
Speaking is another important language arts activity and the kindergarten reading strategy includes the delivery of brief recitations and oral presentations about familiar experiences or interests demonstrating command of simple organization and delivery strategies. The reading teacher expects the students to describe people, places, things, locations, and actions. Kindergarten children are also taught short poems, rhymes, and songs. Language arts lessons require kindergarten students to relate an experience or creative story in a logical sequence.
Language arts worksheets may be used for the children to follow one and two step oral directions. The kindergarten reading strategy students are expected to share information and ideas, speaking audibly in complete, coherent sentences.
