What is the Kindergarten Language Arts Curriculum?

When kids start school, for the first time, there is a ton of excitement. Kids are just happy to be around other kids and see something new.

Does the student have the attention span and focus to be a successful learner? Do they have the general behavioral skills required to be part of a social learning environment? If these questions are in doubt, it is often helpful to retain the student and general biological maturation usually solves the problem.

It is often helpful to focus on developing reading fluency prior to worrying so much about comprehension at this level. The general skills that we hope they have when graduating kindergarten include:
