Pearson myView Reading  |

Engages students by introducing thematic units that allow for the integration of social studies and science across the curriculum. While focusing on various themes, students explore concepts about themselves, their community, and their world. Students learn skills to maintain a healthy inter- and intra-personal lifestyle. Through the thematic units, students are encouraged to express themselves through various mediums, learn the joy of reading as they discover diverse works of literature, and develop sophistication in the use of oral and written language as they engage in meaningful discussion and authentic writing. The myView program integrates instruction in phonics, phonemic awareness, spelling, comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, listening, speaking, fluency and letter formation.

 

Really Great Reading (Phonics Program )  |

Provides educators with the tools and knowledge to teach all students (not just those who learn easily) to read. Really Great Reading makes assessment and grouping practical, efficient and accurate. Our approach to reading instruction is research-based, interactive, explicit, structured, and multisensory. In our lessons, students not only learn to read, but enjoy the intelligent learning process.

 

Go Math  |

A comprehensive mathematics program that builds on prior learning with an approach that provides deep, long-term mastery of the content and skills taught. The program emphasizes Essential Questions and Big Ideas with depth of understanding as the goal.

 

The Classroom Experience  |

  • Morning Meeting” Time: Children experience a sense of belonging, practice communication skills, and are introduced to new concepts and materials through strategies such as shared reading and writing, calendar math and group discussion.
  • Whole-Group Lessons: We know that some skills and concepts need to be taught to the whole group together, followed by the opportunity for independent practice while the teacher visits students at their tables.
  • Read-Aloud: Children learn about each component of literacy as they listen to and discuss high-interest texts related to units of study.
  • Learning Centers: Development is supported through hands-on exploration of important literacy and mathematics concepts while a teacher circulates to monitor and further learning.
  • Small Groups: Teachers provide lessons to small groups that reinforce essential skills, and reteach or enrich as necessary.
  • Snack and Lunch Time: Children practice self-care routines, help distribute materials and clean up, and enjoy time to socialize.
  • Outdoor Play: All areas of development are supported as children explore and play on the playground.
  • Kindergarten Electives/”Specials”  |  Library, Music, Art, Physical Education (P.E), and Library.
