Introduction to Pre-Kindergarten


Students in Pre-Kindergarten learn how to physically handle books, recognize beginning and ending sounds in individual words, and write the majority of letters in their first name. Instruction focuses on orally describing personal interests and following simple directions. Students identify authors and illustrators and describe characters and setting. Students begin drawing and labeling pictures to tell a story. Students expand their personal and academic vocabulary they can use in speaking. Students participate in read-alouds, developing stamina for listening.





The 8 overarching standards are broken down into specific objectives. Each objective is analyzed with student actions, teacher actions, supporting resource(s), and teacher insights. Visit the Overview of Objective Analysis to learn about the purpose, layout, and design.

Student Proficiency Levels + Instructional Guidance

These proficiency levels describe student skill levels for each objective to help classroom teachers identify levels of student understanding. Beneath the proficiency levels, instructional guidance can be found for the developing, approaching, understanding, and deeper acquisition levels.
