Language Arts

Modeled writing, shared writing, and independent writing

Word study, phonics, phonemic awareness, word analysis, syllables, and spelling

Vocabulary and word meaning

Guided Reading

The children work in small reading group based on their reading needs.

We have Instructional Assistants working alongside the teachers during this small group instruction.


Writer’s Workshop allows students to spend time writing for real purposes about things that interest them, experimenting with the various genres. English, spelling, handwriting, and other mechanics can be taught within writing workshop. Students learn the craft of writing through practice, conferencing, and studying the craft of authors. The ultimate goal is to develop life-long writers.


We use a variety of instruction methods:

Whole group and Small group activities

Math Manipulatives, Tubs & Games


Our Science and social studies are integrated throughout reading and writing and uses a hands-on, student centered and inquiry-based approach to investigate Earth, Physical, and Life sciences.
