Social Studies: Pre-K - K

In a kindergarten classroom, social studies learning occurs throughout the day, beginning with a class meeting (often called “morning meeting” or “circle time”) at the start of the day. During this time, many classes review the calendar and the weather, the number of days of school so far, and any other “class news” for the day. Students may also share their own news during this time.

Social studies learning continues throughout the day as kindergartners follow classroom rules and build their social skills, interacting with each other and practicing sharing, taking turns, and working together, all of which ultimately helps them become successful students and classroom citizens. Most kindergarten teachers in the United States also help children learn about the community outside their home and the American holidays.

To build his social studies skills, your Kindergartener:
Works in groups, sharing and taking turns. Develops conflict resolution skills (practice this and other social situations with your child with these What Do I Do? Conversation Flash Cards). Develops communication and conversation skills. Learns about his community outside of his home. Learns about the calendar. Learns about American holidays.
