Kindergarten Curriculum

Upon completion of our kindergarten program, each child will be academically and socially prepared to enter first grade. Our curriculum consists of an intensive phonics and math program plus the integration of science and social studies into lessons that children can apply to everyday situations.

Language Arts
Our language art curriculum is comprised of Saxon Phonics and Spelling taught in combination with quality literature. The program focuses on the important foundational skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, spelling, fluency and handwriting. Saxon is a success-oriented series that allows children to develop a solid foundation in phonics, thus becoming successful readers and spellers by building on prior learning. New material is presented in increments and reviewed throughout the year, providing every child with the exposure needed to achieve success.

Math
With Saxon Math, instruction builds on the foundation of previously learned material, leading students to a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts by using manipulatives and hands-on activities.

Social and Spiritual
Socially, our goal is for each child to know they are loved and accepted while being challenged to meet their full potential. As a Christian school, children learn basic Christian values through example, prayer, Bible stories, songs and weekly Chapel.

By keeping our student to teacher ratio low, students have the opportunity to acquire the academic and social skills needed to excel in public schools.

Meet the Kindergarten Team

Welcome to the Friends in Christ Preschool and Kindergarten at First United Methodist Church, Frisco.  My name is Cynthia Leisey and I am looking forward to a great fun filled year full of learning and adventure. I have been with FIC since 2004 as part of their Pre-K program, then added Art and Computer teaching to the Kindergarten class before becoming full-time Kindergarten teacher.

I have worked in the education field in various positions since 1988.  I was a Reading and Language Arts aide for first graders, taught third grade children reading in an at-risk program, and earned a gifted endorsement where I taught children in first through sixth grade, Math and Language Arts, in that area.  In 2002 my family moved to Frisco.

I know you will be pleased with the program here at FIC and the progress you will see in your child.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have during the course of the year.  Again, “Welcome” and here’s to a GREAT year!
