Each child comes into kindergarten with different skills. Some are ready to read or reading already, while others are still developing their skills. Kindergarten is a literacy rich environment and provides endless opportunities to develop literacy skills. Literacy activities in kindergarten are set up with many open ended activities to challenge each child at whatever level he/she is learning. The goal is that every child will grow tremendously no matter what their skills at kindergarten entry and will achieve the literacy foundation that will help him/her succeed in first grade and beyond.
