This course is designed to maximize your child’s potential in preparation for first grade. Curriculum content will include building and enhancing reading skills, phonemic awareness, fluency, and decoding skills. Your child will build his/her skills in written expression through daily handwriting practice, sentence construction, proper grammar usage and the overall fundamentals of becoming an avid writer. Reading fluency and comprehension are at the core of this grade level. Developing reading strategies to assist concepts of print and promote fluency and comprehension are the cornerstone of our reading series. Leveled readers and weekly reading inventories ensure that our students are challenged. The comprehensive approach taken to teach both reading and writing ensures that our students become both readers and authors; promoting autonomy and independence as they engage in the complexities of the curriculum.
Mathematical concepts such as problem solving, operations, and number sense will be taught using hands-on manipulatives, while students work cooperatively on various activities. Additionally, the use of Cuisenaire rods and snap cubes will enhance your child’s number sense by making “numbers” come to life. "Real-Life" Math opportunities will be provided as students will "shop" the local book store and make change. Visual representation of Math is integrated in the form of pie and bar charts while the children make meaningful connections to their daily experiences.
Daily enrichment activities such as art, computers, physical education, and yoga / meditation will provide students with a dynamic, integrated learning experience.
The penultimate day of the program will include a “Celebration of Learning.” Both students and parents will participate in activities that highlight the six-week academic journey. There will be no Lunch Bunch or Stay and Play on August 7.
