At Brooksfield, the Kindergarten students come together each afternoon for Kindergarten Focus Time to continue their morning lessons and delve deeper into special units of study as well as:

  • math
  • language and creative writing
  • science and geography

This focus time provides an opportunity to reinforce the Kindergartener's important role as a leader and role model. In turn they are encouraged to bring their lessons to their younger classmates.

Some of the special units of study in Science and Geography include:

  • solids, liquids and gas
  • experimenting with states of matter
  • map studies
  • world biomes
  • simple machines and more

Kindergarten 2They also expand their skills in Language, Math and Writing with lessons on:

  • phonograms
  • grammar (articles, nouns and verbs)
  • fractions
  • time and money
  • measurement
  • geometry
  • creative writing
  • penmanship

We encourage social responsibility with community outreach projects, such as:

  • making and delivering lavender sachets to nursing home residents over the holidays
  • making no sew blankets for the local children’s hospital

Finally, the kindergarten students have specialist classes each week such as:

  • Physical Education
  • Spanish
  • Computers
  • Art
