• Welcome to Arnold Elementary.  Kindergarten is the place to be!  I am so excited that your child is in my class.  They are now ready for "Big School".  We have gotten off to a great start, and the children have already learned so much.   This year in Kindergarten, your child will learn to identify letters, and sounds, discriminate beginning, middle, and ending sounds in words, and recognize sight words. They will also learn how to decode simple words. In Math, they will learn to identify numbers 0-20, count by 1's and 10's to 100, and much much more.  The most important skill that your child will learn in Kindergarten is how to read.  Being able to read, helps your child in all of the other subject areas that they will be studying.  Not only are we working on academic skills, but we are also learning how to work together.  As we say here at Arnold "We Are The One".
