TK at Gault is built to be a welcoming entry into the school experience. With play-focused learning and a social environment, TK is built to instill a love of school while giving students a safe developmental environment to build relationships.

Kindergarten provides a more focused and directed approach to the curriculum, but it is certainly nevertheless a year that puts play, social development and curiosity foremost.

Whether you start in TK or K, you will find a warm welcome to your time at Gault.

Our early learning focuses on many areas in which students explore.

We learn reading and phonics: letters, sounds, blends, words, and reading!

We learn math: numbers and more numbers! Counting, matching, adding, subtraction, composing and decomposing numbers to ten, patterns, shapes and basic number sense.

 

We learn Social Studies: Science and Social and Emotional Development: hands on projects woven into the day

 

We learn language arts: GLAD. English Language Development for students learning English as a second language and Spanish for students who speak English as their first language

We also learn CS and Digital literacy: introduction to foundational concepts of digital literacy.

The Life Lab Program at Gault School is a hands-on science and nutrition program. All TK & K students visit the garden in small groups with their class every other week during the school year.

 

Lessons include scientific observation and illustration, science experiments, planting, growing, and harvesting seasonal fruits and vegetables, preparing foods and tasting.

Art and Music are integrated all throughout the day in all classrooms but our TK and K students get to have designated art classes as well, providing time to explore their creativity.

Our art classes are taught by a credentialed art teacher who works to develop not only fine motor skills but self expression.

At Gault, our computer science program starts right away! We work with "offline" algorithms and give students a real-world foundation of computational concepts to build familiarity in computer science.

In Kindergarten, this starts with programming a Kibo robot! After planning and creating their program, pairs of programmers practice using Kibo’s scanner to input the program in to the robot!  Then, we get to observe Kibo’s movements, debug any problems, and see our programs in action!
