• I have been working with Kindergarten students here at Southwest Elementary for 22 years and I love it ! It is so rewarding to see the students show growth and see the look of excitement and pride as they get an understanding of/master individual skills at different levels.  We will work on reading readiness/guided reading in groups and math skills. We will work on writing a short story (starting with how to write a complete sentence and later to add to their writings). We will learn alphabet letter sounds so students will be able to put letter sounds together to make words and read 3-6 letter words throughout the academic year.
