At Brooksfield, the Kindergarten students come together each afternoon for Kindergarten Focus Time to continue their morning lessons and delve deeper into special units of study as well as:
- language and creative writing
- science and geography
This focus time provides an opportunity to reinforce the Kindergartener's important role as a leader and role model. In turn they are encouraged to bring their lessons to their younger classmates.
Some of the special units of study in Science and Geography include:
- solids, liquids and gas
- experimenting with states of matter
- map studies
- world biomes
- simple machines and more
They also expand their skills in Language, Math and Writing with lessons on:
- grammar (articles, nouns and verbs)
- time and money
- creative writing
We encourage social responsibility with community outreach projects, such as:
- making and delivering lavender sachets to nursing home residents over the holidays
- making no sew blankets for the local children’s hospital
Finally, the kindergarten students have specialist classes each week such as:
- Physical Education
