How does online kindergarten work?
Our curriculum is rooted in the principles of how children learn, while the online school platform harnesses the power of 21st-century technology to make learning come alive. K12-powered online kindergarten offers engaging courses that provide a solid foundation in reading, math, science, and history. Students may also choose courses in art, music, and world languages.** All courses are designed to help spark your child's joy of learning—a joy that's sure to grow with each academic year.
Students build a strong foundation in early reading, writing, and word study, while fostering a love of reading. Structured lessons provide instruction in handwriting, vocabulary, phonics, and foundations of the writing process. Poetry, literature, and nonfiction texts are used to develop basic comprehension.
Students are introduced to numbers. They learn through reading, writing, counting, comparing, ordering, adding, and subtracting. Students solve problems and encounter early concepts in place value and measurement. They also study two- and three-dimensional figures.
Students begin to develop observation skills as they learn about the five senses, the human body, and the basic needs of plants and animals. Students also explore measurement, matter, the seasons, weather, our earth, motion, and astronomy.
Students learn the basics of world geography and are introduced to American history and the people who created it. Supplementary lessons introduce symbols representing America, the rights and responsibilities of citizens and the laws they must follow, some of the many cultures and traditions found in the U.S., and basic economic concepts.
Students learn through contextual interpretation and imitation. This appealing adventure for young minds includes a fun and interactive experience by learning through animated stories that are authentic to each country’s language and culture.
Students are introduced to line, shape, color, and more. They learn about portraits and landscapes, and realistic and abstract art. Students explore paintings, sculpture, and architecture, and create artworks similar to the works they have studied.
Students build foundational skills through singing, creative movement, dancing, real and virtual instruments, listening maps, and authentic sound recordings. They learn about musical elements, explore music around the world, and perform seasonal and celebratory songs.
