Kindergarten Students spend the greater portion of their day in reading readiness and mathematics readiness activities. LUMP/K uses the New Phonics Multi-Sensory Reading program. This program appeals to all five of the students senses and affords excellent results. Supplementary materials are used to further meet the individual needs of the kindergarten student.
The Kindergarten uses the Houghton-Mifflin Math for Kindergarten program. We feel that this program offers the young child the necessary base upon which to build his or her future math experiences.
The Science for Today & Tomorrow program provides an individual, hands-on approach to beginning science concepts, as the students explore the world around them using the scientific method.
Kindergarteners will also use Ready, Set, Show What You Know. This innovative approach addresses Ohio’s learning outcomes and creates successful test taking strategies.
A pre-screening and post-evaluation program is used to asses the children’s progress in all developmental areas including reading and math.
LUMP/K Kindergarten is chartered by the Ohio Department of Education and our curriculum is aligned with the Ohio Academic Content Standards.
