Kindergarten ELA

Course Description

Kindergarten English Languages Arts (ELA) is an study in Saskatchewan’s Core Curriculum. The aim of this course is to help learners understand and appreciate language. The lessons will include all areas of language: reading, writing, speaking, listening, representing and viewing. In addition, Kindergarten in Saskatchewan is highly play-based and individualized. We are flexible and through regular communication, we are willing to support families to fit the learner’s voice and choice. Note: All children learn at different rates and there is no expectation that a student will be reading by the end of Kindergarten. Assessments will include ongoing home assessment and some submissions/communication to DLC teacher.
