Academics: Pre-Kindergarten

The Pre-Kindergarten program is an advanced kindergarten readiness program that builds upon the skill sets developed in the Pre-School Program.  Students receive increased academic instruction and are expected to have verbal skills, writing skills, phonics (decoding and encoding) skills, logical and critical thinking skills, reasoning skills and able to perform in a group or class environment upon entering the Pre-Kindergarten Program.  Additionally, students receive instruction in language, reading, vocabulary, spelling, arithmetic, time, money and physical education.

 

 Additionally,  the Pre-Kindergarten program at Romar Academy uses a multi sensory developmental approach to curriculum development. Activities are used that stimulate the senses of sight, touch, hearing, smell, and taste. The children’s receptive and expressive language is enhanced through the use of nursery rhymes, poetry, various books, and discussions. Activities are aimed at increasing observation, comparison, exploration, testing, inquiry, problem solving skills, and group cooperation. Development in the knowledge of self, home, family, transportation, and the community is emphasized.

 

Qualls Early Learning Inventory (QELI)

 

The QELI assessment is administered to two-year old students (spring only), three-year old preschool students and pre-kindergarten students in the fall and spring of each academic year as a means of measuring a student’s progress, a teacher’s efficiency, the depth and content of Romar’s curriculum.

 

Students are tested in the areas of General Knowledge (common information and general facts expected of young children), Oral Communication (how well a student communicates ideas, describes what has been seen or  heard, or asks about things), Written Language (recognition and use of written words), Math Concepts (understanding and use of beginning mathematical ideas and processes), Work Habits (manner in which students seek and respond to learning opportunities) and Attentive Behavior (ability to sustain focus on classroom activities).

 

Scoring sheets are completed by teachers based upon a child’s work, reviewed by administration and mailed for scoring.  When received, results are forwarded to parents and interpreted by teacher.
