Singapore Math

Follows the MN Science Standard

  • Follows the Core Knowledge Scope and Sequence
  • Integrates with Chinese Language Arts in the immersion classroom ,e.g. observe plants growth
  • Fosters a science attitude:

"The success of science has more to do with an attitude common to scientists than with a particular method. This attitude is one of inquiry, experimentation, and humility before the facts." - Paul G. Hewitt, Conceptual Physics, Second Edition, p. 3

  • Hands on activities, experiment experiences

Elementary school children are in a concrete operational stage of their development. (Piaget, 1958)

--Invisible things must be represented in concrete form to enable these children to grasp the concepts.

social studies

In kindergarten, children often study aspects of the world around them: the family, the school, the community.

We want to help students think about their relationship with the world and foster their curiosity.

Social Studies
play is important to children

Play, along with the basic needs of nutrition, health, shelter and education, is vital to develop the potential of all children.

Play is communication and expression, combing thought and action; it gives satisfaction and a feeling of achievement.

Play is instinctive, voluntary, and spontaneous.

Play is important to Children
play is important to children1

Play helps children develop physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially.

Play is a means of learning to live, not a mere passing of time.

Play is the child’s way of learning.
