Reading and Language Arts
Our youngest learners develop a life-long love of reading through daily read-a-louds, library story-time and exposure to print rich classrooms. They are exposed to songs, stories, phonics and critical thinking that develops their expressive and receptive language skills, preparing them for reading independence. In the writing center, students express themselves by drawing, writing stories and letters. They develop their fine motor skills by experimenting with a variety of instruments, including playdough and foam.
Young children learn best by “doing” and in science, our students are hands-on and elbows deep as they engage in experiments that teach them to question, explore and create. From learning about plants and seeds, creatures, animal habitats, weather, nutrition and magnets, they experience the joy of discovery in very active lessons and projects.
