This course is designed to prepare your child for the rigors and challenges of second grade. Students will be exposed to various genres of writing, as they learn the basics of story elements and characterization. Context clues and decoding skills will help your child become a more fluent and independent reader. Our writing focus will be the creation of deep, meaningful sentences that take the form of interrogatives, statements, and exclamations with the goal of creating a descriptive piece of writing. Extensive vocabulary work and an integrated spelling program relevant to the stories will bring greater depth to these young writers as they become their own authors. Mathematical concepts such as addition, subtraction and regrouping comprise our core curriculum. Multiplication using skip counting, division of single and double digit numbers and basic fractions are taught as well using counters, tangrams, and charts to clarify abstract concepts. Additional skills such as basic money-sense, units of measure, and thermometer use are included as students master previous concepts; scaffolding of instruction is implemented as best practices of pedagogy and learning.
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 July 31.
