Kindergarten Scope and Sequence

“What curriculum do you suggest for Kindergarten?”

This is a question I am frequently asked by parents. It is also a question I find particularly difficult to provide a quick, easy response to. The truth is I do not believe that a curriculum is necessary for Kindergarten, but that usually is not the answer parents are looking for or expect. They are certain that Kindergarten is that magical time when suddenly what was “life” must become “education” and therefore needs to include workbooks, textbooks, and organized lessons. So they are hoping I will have ideas and suggestions for an organized course of study all laid out in black and white.

To read more, check out my newly updated article “Do You Need to Teach Kindergarten?”

    Oh my goodness. I find this to be such a curious question as well. If I wanted my kids to have that sort of learning experience at such a young age, well, I’d have sent them to kindergarten. Is that really all the “scope and sequence”? We’ve got that covered and then some. Every time I feel like I’m not doing enough, I read something like your article that makes me realize I’m doing plenty. So thank you. 🙂

  • The bit I have included in my article is just a sample of the entire scope and sequence. But it is quite evident that Kindergarten (and Preschool) does not need to be complicated. Just the simple, every day things we do with our children will more than prepare them for their upcoming academic years.

  • Amazing website, lots of content, and very user friendly, bookmarked! 🙂
