About the Teacher:

My name is Ms.Gottlob, this is my third year at Chesterbrook Academy and my first year as the Junior Kindergarten Teacher. I enjoy watching students learn and grow through hands on exploration while trying to create an encouraging and motivating learning environment.

What to Expect in Junior Kindergarten:                                                                                                                                                                                                                            In Junior Kindergarten we will be preparing your child for success when they enter kindergarten, some learning outcomes are…

  • identifies uppercase and lowercase letters and their corresponding letter sound
  • reads/recognizes sight words and attempts to sound out unknown words using letter-sound correspondence
  • uses inventive spelling in writing and communicates in writing with spacing between words
  • counts 1-100 by ones and tens and recognizes numerals 1-100
  •  solves simple addition and subtraction with concrete objects or illustrations

We work on our learning goals through a mix of whole group instruction, small group work, and one on one support from the teacher.
