Throughout our day we have many learning opportunities:
Math skills are taught daily. We work on key concepts such as place
value, addition/subtraction, multiplication, fractions, time/money,
graphing/probability and problem solving.
Science focuses on three standards: Life, Physical and Earth Sciences.
Social Studies curriculum focuses on who and where we are in place and
time and how we express ourselves. We also explore how the world works,
how we organize ourselves and how we share the planet.
Reading and writing skills happen on a daily basis. In writing we follow
the writing process. We brainstorm, draft, revise, edit and publish.
Throughout the year we will write paragraphs with main ideas and
supporting details. We will also write informative/explanatory texts,
narratives, poetry and engage in various shared research projects.
In reading, we focus on strategies such as grade level phonics and word
analysis skills in decoding, responding to literature and identifying
stories and their features. We work in shared reading groups and in
individual groups to make connections to the texts we read.
