How this schedule supports learning
We intentionally developed the schedule to support student learning and development, for example:
This includes 4 distinct parts: read aloud, shared reading, guided reading, and independent reading. Each component is designed to aid scholars in their reading growth and mastery.
Our scholars write every day, giving them the knowledge, skills and habits of successful writers. They also have the opportunity to try their hand at different types of writing (expository, narrative, and persuasive) throughout the year.
In kindergarten, scholars begin exploring mathematical concepts using a variety of materials and techniques, and are exposed to many different types of problems. Our math curriculum introduces the scholars to a topic and then builds upon that concept as new ones are introduced.
Many of our students are coming to kindergarten with reading gaps. We need more time to fill to help them catch up and become college ready.
The schedule empowers students to make choices about what activities they participate in through Special Classes. This allows our scholars to begin to identify their passions at a young age.
