Welcome to the Elementary Program
Our elementary program fosters the child's ability to quickly understand abstract concepts; giving the child the vehicle to pursue the most cherished goals within education, the "overwhelming quest for knowledge."
Here is a quick look....
Our language program uses manipulative materials to create a rich sensorial experience. Children engage in meaningful reading and effective writing. All parts of speech are utilized. Vocabulary enrichment is of great importance. Children also have many opportunities for public speaking.
Effective reading, writing and speaking is a composite of many language skills. Children analyze letters, sound -digraphs, words, diphthongs and meanings. They read for understanding. They write and speak with confidence.
Since reading is dependent on knowing what words mean; we study the eight parts of speech in depth. Children within our program are able to analyze and construct complex sentences with ease.
Here is our ultimate goal. Children find reading pleasurable and informational. Effective readers and writers are sure to achieve academic success.
Math (a continuum approach)
Continuing the use of hands on material that helps children develop a deep understanding of advanced mathematics
Beginning with linear counting and then......Going from one to infinity.
Moving further into operations of math that include, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are completed with solid manipulative's; before moving into an abstract understanding.
Algebraic operations are solved and understood with the use of combining both concrete and abstract forms of thinking.
Offering a sensorial experience with fractions enables the child to understand, "Invert divisor and multiply."
Early discovery of geometry leads to the understanding of the Pythagorean theorem and beyond.
