๐Ÿซ Curriculum

  • ๐Ÿ“– Reading/Language Arts:  A balanced literacy program will be used to teach the reading and language skills.
    • Focus on alphabet letter recognition and formation, phonics and decoding skills, phonemic awareness, concepts of print, and emerging reading/writing skills.
    • The goal is to develop and encourage fluent readers, articulate writers and speakers, and good listeners and viewers.
    • Small group instruction with the teacher will be on phonics (letter/sounds) and word study.
    • The children will learn to collaborate, play fairly, take turns, share materials, solve problems, and develop some responsibility for their own learning.
    • In language arts the focus will be to introduce students to good writing and help them develop an understanding of multiple uses of writing.

  • ๐Ÿงฎ Mathematics: Our math program will utilize useful, meaningful, productive, and enjoyable activities that help children become independent and comfortable thinkers about mathematical ideas.
    • You will see your child become excited by a wealth of mathematics activities, including counting, numeration, addition and subtraction, graphing, measurement, geometry, patterns, and data collecting.
    • By using real materials like Unifix cubes, pattern blocks, coins, counting manipulatives, graphs and balance scales, your student will be able to illustrate and visualize a concept in a concrete way.
