Description of CURRICULUM/PROGRAMS used each day with students:
Boston Public Schools (Kindergarten): The Boston Public Schools Curriculum is an integrated approach to learning that emphasizes student choice and active participation. The kindergarten students participate in four units of study: communities, animal life, construction and engineering and their earth. Much of the student learning is achieved through the use of learning centers. There is a strong emphasis on integrating literacy with the math, science and social studies. In each center, the learning is purposeful and intentional.
Fundations (Grades K - 3): Fundations is a systematic teaching approach to phonics and spelling. This program teaches kindergarten students letter sounds in a very specific way so that they learn to associate letters with their sounds. In later grades, students then learn to write their letters and build words.
Eureka (Grades K - 5): Eureka is a systematic math program that encourages math fluency and problem-solving, and builds concepts through hands-on activities and practice.
Wonders (Grades K - 5): Wonders is a comprehensive K-6 English Language Arts program which aligns with the CCSS (Common Core State Standards) as well as incorporates both science and social studies topics within lessons.
