LANGUAGE AND LITERACY

Each student is offered a leveled reading and spelling program that accommodates his/her learning style and achievement level. Students select their own books and read daily, both individually and with the teacher for personalized instruction and evaluation of progress.  We use a multi curriculum approach in the classroom that incorporates reading, phonics, writing, and spelling.

SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATHEMATICS

We nurture students' natural curiosity about the world through a science curriculum that features FOSS kits and themes to explore in depth using varied resources, such as biomes, matter, and life cycles.  Students are conversant with technologies including laptops, Smart Boards, and adaptive online learning programs.  Front Row, McGraw Hill, and other mathematics resources, including hands-on work with manipulatives, help build our students' process-oriented thinking, computational skills, and problem solving abilities.

ART, MUSIC AND DRAMA

Students explore various mediums for self-expression and learn elements of art, showcasing their work annually in the Spring Art Show.  A variety of compositions and types of music from many cultures stimulates students' interest, and students also learn to dance and to perform with instruments and voice.  Together, elementary students create and produce plays and programs ranging from puppet shows to a formal Christmas Program.

SOCIAL STUDIES
Learning about people, environments, communities, and geographical locations is acquired through songs, stories, maps, books, newspapers, interviews, current events, library research, and the internet.  Students' learning is guided and deepened through themes such as Neighborhoods, Maps, Elections, and the American Revolution.  Frequent field trips bring learning to life!

PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND HEALTH

Our P.E. program includes cooperative games, sports, and instruction in a variety of skill areas. We promote healthy lifestyles by learning about fitness, nutrition, and healthy choices.

SPANISH

Students learn and practice basic Spanish vocabulary and simple sentences, songs and customs weekly through our Spanish specialists' creative, student-centered, interactive curriculum.
