Curriculum

1-2 Year Olds
3-4 Year Olds
Pre-K
Kinder-1st Grade

 Students engage in teacher-led, age-appropriate early learning songs and book readings within the daily circle time, then practice and extend their learning in Montessori-style, hands-on 'jobs' and activities intermingled with free play. 2 year olds also participate in afternoon PE/Gymnastics enrichment classes twice a week. 

 Students build on their knowledge with daily teacher-led skill practice in circle time, as well as receive instruction at the 3-4 year old level from the McGraw-Hill “World of Wonders” preschool curriculum. Students practice and extend their learning in Montessori-style, hands-on 'jobs' and activities within short teacher-guided, independent, and free choice rotations, as well as free play. Preschoolers also participate daily in our afternoon special area enrichment classes. 

Students develop their pre-kindergarten learning foundations from the McGraw-Hill “World of Wonders” and “Eureka Math” preschool curriculums in the subject areas of Phonemic Awareness, Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Social/Emotional Learning. Teachers instruct and develop students’ understanding through interactive and engaging whole-group circle time, as well as provide practice and extension in Montessori-style, hands-on 'jobs' and activities within rotations intermingled with free play. Pre-Kindergarteners also participate daily in our afternoon special area enrichment classes. 

Our elementary program provides students with state and national standards-aligned instruction in each of the core subject areas. Students are monitored for growth throughout the year in Math and Reading through the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment, and their pre-reading and reading skills are measured three times a year using the Texas Primary Reading Inventory (TPRI) assessment. Teachers balance explicit instruction with concept practice and extension through interactive whole-group and small-group rotations, and support students’ developing understanding through Montessori-style, hands-on 'jobs' and activities.

Assessments

-NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) https://www.nwea.org/map-growth/  

  • The NWEA® Measures of Academic Progress (MAP®) Growth™ assessment is a standardized, nationally normed, and computer-based adaptive test that assesses what students know and what they are ready to learn in content area knowledge. Scores and reports are used by teachers and schools to monitor student performance by measuring academic achievement and growth over time. Results can be expanded by topic and skill, and used to tailor classroom instruction and set academic goals for students over the course of the school year.

-Texas Primary Reading Inventory (TPRI) https://childrenslearninginstitute.org/resources/tpri/ 

  • The Texas Primary Reading Inventory (TPRI) is an "early reading assessment designed to identify the reading development of students in kindergarten through third grade." The screening section is used to identify students who may be at-risk for reading difficulties, and the inventory section is used to identify what specific skills students have mastered in their reading development process. TPRI is administered 3 times a year for progress monitoring, and intervention activities can be easily accessed to support learners based on their individual needs.
