Locuniak states (2008), “We believed that number sense in kindergarten would be a strong predictor of later calculation fluency.” One of the most important tools for solving most math problems is fluency in basic calculation. To solve operations with multidigit numbers, whole or rationale, positive or negative depends on fluent knowledge of number combinations (Locuniak). According to Locuniak (2008), dysfluent calculation is very common among children with math difficulties. Therefore, students with math problems tend to have a deficit in speed and accuracy.
Locuniak also states, “Children with poor fact mastery showed remarkably flat growth on timed fact retrieval tasks

The Value of Early Childhood Education
Most children begin receiving formal education during kindergarten. Recent scientific research has proven that learning and mental development begin immediately after birth. During the first three years of a childâ€™s life, essential brain and neural development occurs. Therefore, children greatly benefit by receiving education before kindergarten.
Since kindergarten begin around the ages of 5 to 6 for most children, after major brain development occurs, parents should begin educating children at younger ages.
Many parents begin educating their children during these important developmental years. However, many parents neglect to take the time to educate their young children. Many factors can contribute to this, such as long work schedules and ignorance about the importance of educating children at a young age. (The Value of Early Childhood Education)

For any learning curriculum to be efficient there is a need for proper execution of set goals and objectives. These objectives act as a guidelines and basis for the institution, the teachers, and the learners. Objectives articulate the supposed learning programs and the proposed outcome of the learning process this can be defined by the knowledge or the skills obtain during the course. Hence, instruction objectives put emphasis on the impact of the learning process to the kindergarten student, hence concentrating on the outcome of the learning process other than then learning process its self.

Seven hours a day, five days a week is a very sufficient amount of time to teach and learn these things, if it wasn’t, I’m sure we would extend the school day, or make our children attend kindergarten at three years old. I never had homework until I was in fifth grade. When I was a child we weren’t handed such “responsibilities,” those were adult things and we were kids.

The idea of red shirting was originally taken from sports. If an athlete wanted to they could take their freshman year of sports off, and then they could play the following year with other athletes that are younger than they are. In sports if someone is red shirted it means that they are physically bigger and stronger than most of the other athletes that they play against. This gives them an advantage.

It was started in 1988 as preparatory school with only 28 kindergarten pupils and after a year’s ago school now offers Nursery, Kindergarten, Elementary and High School with more than a thousand students. Its development as an institution was simultaneous with the development and growth of Parish Community.
As the school develops, the administrators tried to upgrade its faculty members with more than forty five (45) class advisers and subject teachers as well as students’ support services and school facilities. The school has not yet adopted a senior high school due to school limited area and lack of laboratories.

provide a mechanism for adjustment and tailoring. Moreover this concept is further exemplified by educators by applying the term ‘tailored curriculum’ in which curriculum and its assessment is biased towards the learners and their particular needs.
There are some similarities between approaches to curriculum in the 3‐5 and 5‐8 year old settings. Perhaps the most significant of these similarities is teaching strategies used for the delivery of learning experiences. Either in the kindergarten or primary schools, educators are scaffolding and modeling children’s learning. Scaffolding refers to adults’ adjusting support in accordance with children’s current learning level. Landry and Forman

Over half of the world’s population today is bilingual, meaning that it is able to use two languages with equal fluency, and sixty-six percent of children are raised to speak more than one language. At the same time, only 6.3 percent of children in the United States are being raised this way. In an effort to keep up with the times, many school systems throughout the world practice bilingual education, or teaching two languages simultaneously. Bilingual education from kindergarten or earlier is not a common practice in the United States which is greatly disadvantageous to the students.

Poetry CommentaryIt is often said that in kindergarten every life lesson necessary for survival is taught. Children run, play, and most importantly let imaginations run wild. The world is innocent and new without the corruption of man, or at least it can not be seen by such adolescent eyes. A child constructs another world through mythical fairy tales or elaborate bed time stories. In "Fern Hill," Dylan Thomas depicts a child's magical childhood and the restraints time has on life itself.Colors are used by many authors to represent various moods and atmospheres in a piece of literature.

When she encounters these children, she establishes a relationship first on care, affection, and trust in order to provide a solid and consistent groundwork with which she can begin addressing the specific needs of the child. She begins each day with a hug, redirects with a hug and reprimands with a hug. She feels that these are the times when the child is truly in the most need and feels that hugging tends to diffuse the situation, both for

There are a variety of problem solving methods for disciplinary issues that teachers experience with students. When a teacher is actively handling an issue with students, peer mediation can be a productive way to handle conflict.
Peer mediation can be effective with a variety of ages. Working in Kindergarten, I couldn’t use this strategy initially. Now, I often use this strategy. The reason I have not been able to use peer mediation all year is because students are often time learning policies and procedures for the first time. They have to learn how to positively interact with peers and to treat other children as they would want to be treated.

Children shouldn't say â€œnoâ€ be it when another child asks if they can join a game or if they can share a snack or anything. After the teacher thought of banning the term, she asked the class for their opinion. Kindergartens are supposed to be malleable in their beliefs and ideas, but these kindergartens would not have it.

Schooling is compulsory for all children in the United States, but the age range for which school attendance is required varies from state to state. Most children begin elementary education with kindergarten (usually five to six years old) and finish secondary education with twelfth grade (usually eighteen years old). In some cases, pupils may be promoted beyond the next regular grade. Some states allow students to leave school between 14–17 with parental permission, before finishing high school; other states require students to stay in school until age 18.
