How Kumon’s Curriculum Supports Your Preschoolers’ Learning
In the levels of the Kumon Math Program that correspond with preschool learning, students deepen their understanding of the number sequence, helping them develop the skills they’ll need when they learn addition and subtraction. Students first learn to recite and write numbers, and then progress to counting. Once students have strengthened their counting skills and number sense, they begin adding, setting them up to tackle elementary school math topics.
In the levels of the Kumon Reading Program that correspond with preschool learning, students progress from pre-reading skills to basic reading and writing. In the first two levels, they repeat and recite words, learning to associate spoken words with their written form. Next, they learn letter sounds and begin to write letters, then learn letter combinations and start reading. By the time they’ve finished the first few levels of the program, they should be able to understand and write short sentences, preparing them for elementary reading topics.
