• Teaching and Learning in Our Class

    Our classroom environment reflects real, relevant teaching and learning. Our classroom curriculum incorporates all the language processes (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) in a meaningful context using a balanced literacy approach that values purposeful reading and writing. Our classroom encourages children to see themselves as readers, writers, and problem-solvers. We value the process as well as the product, and understand that all children are unique individuals. The teaching process is based on what we know about how children learn. 
    Our classroom strives to:
    • Immerse the students in oral and written language, offering ample opportunities for experience and practice.
    • Create a cooperative classroom where children are encouraged to interact in a positive way.
    •  Create an environment where children take responsibility for their learning and their behavior
    • Give children choice times during the day where they have opportunities to be responsible for their own learning.
    • Provide multiple opportunities for children to work independently or with the teacher, in large groups, small groups, and individually.
    • Give children experience with real mathematical and scientific processes and create a print-rich environment.
