Singapore Math

Students who are in our full-day preschool/kindergarten program use our Singapore Math curriculum. Each student has their own Kindergarten level textbook. Ms.Karin works 1-on-1 with each student to help him or her learn at his or her own pace. Units include Matching and Sorting, Numbers 1-5, Numbers 6-10, Ordering Numbers, Shapes, etc. 

Montessori Language

We use Montessori Language materials to help students in our classroom learn letter sounds, build words, practice rhyming, and prepare for writing. A common work in our classroom is tracing a sandpaper letter and matching it with a small object that begins with that sound.

Montessori Math

All students ages 3-6 use Montessori math materials during our morning work period. A teacher will present a work to a child individually or in a small group. The child is then free to work with the material whenever they choose. The teachers will also continue to work with the student 1-on-1 until they have mastered the work. Some of our math materials include sandpaper numbers, Montessori bead bars, and the addition strip board.

Culture and Geography

Students in the 3-6 Classroom learn about topics such as our Earth and the seven continents, land/air/water, landforms, and timelines. One activity students might do is match North American animal figurines to real photos of North American animals.

Montessori Sensorial

The Sensorial area of the Montessori classroom includes works to help children develop their senses and develop the skill of visual discrimination in regards to width, length, height, and color. Some activities include the sound cylinders, tasting bottles, the Brown Stairs, the Pink Tower, the Red Rods, Knobbed and Knobless Cylinders, and the Geometric Solids. The Sensorial works prepare children for later work in Math.

Language Development

An important part of the early childhood classroom is helping children develop and expand their vocabulary. This is especially important for students who speak English as their second language. In our classroom, we use songs, felt stories, read alouds, and finger plays to help students develop language skills such as positional words (above, below, in front of, behind), color words, numbers, letters, animal names, and rhyming words.
