Kindergarten students recognize, pronounce, and write the 26 letters of the alphabet, both lowercase and uppercase. Students learn the difference between individual letters and printed words and blend sounds to make spoken words. Children also learn and apply letter-sound correspondences of a set of consonants and vowels to begin to read.

Kindergarten students learn the difference between individual letters and printed words and how to segment one-syllable words into individual phonemes. Students recognize, pronounce, and write various phonemes and identify consonants and vowels.

Kindergarten students learn that handwriting should always take place in an appropriate environment, which includes good lighting, a cleared area, feet on the floor, and good posture. Students know which hand is dominant and begin writing accordingly. View TEKS.
