Our writing program encourages any and all efforts. Writing lasts between 30 min.- 1 hour each day. Your child will be challenged at his/her own level of skill and interest. As your children's writing skills improve, their reading skill will also improve.
How can parents encourage writing?
* Admire (not criticize) the work your child brings home.
* Understand that your child is just learning to spell and doesn't
yet have it right.
* Be interested in whatever your child writes.
Reading and Small Groups
Every class has small group time each day. This small group time focuses on reading and literacy skills and lasts about 1 hour.
Math is taught throughout the day, during morning meeting, calendar time, and during math time. Our focus is on hands-on activities to learn math concepts.
Math may also be taught in small groups.
