数学

文字:Go 数学! Our math series and instruction uses the guidelines from the Common Core Standards to build Kindergarteners’ early math skills. Our goal is to set an early foundation for students by strengthening basic skills, which they can then expand upon. We focus on counting and identifying numerals from one to one hundred, matching sets of objects to their numerals, 大于, 不到, 形状, 基本除了, and subtraction concepts. We also supplement with other crucial math skills like time, graphing, and measuring. We use iPads, games, and many hands-on manipulatives to reinforce math lessons. Our Kindergarten children are challenged at their level throughout the school year.

阅读

Text: Journeys Common Core by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt: The Archdiocese of Chicago sets rigorous standards for reading and 写作 using Common Core Standards as a base while incorporating religious texts into our curriculum. 阅读 curriculum includes literature, 理解, 看字读音, phonological awareness, 和词汇. Our lesson begins each week with a “big book” that is used to reinforce vocabulary, 押韵, 故事的元素, and story structure. We also incorporate literacy centers (Daily Five) into our day. This allows the teachers to take small groups for guided reading based on student level, while other students practice various reading, 写作, and word knowledge skills. In addition, we do weekly journals and creative 写作.

宗教

Text: Blest Are We: Faith in Action from RCL Benziger 宗教 is incorporated into daily lessons, and the students work on developing and enhancing Christian behaviors of respect, 友谊, 和责任. We also attend all-school mass weekly with 8th Grade buddies, as well as all observed Holy Days. 每天早上, we pray together as a school as well as participating in daily prayers in our classroom which includes the Sign of the Cross, 我们的天父, 万福玛利亚, 与荣耀同在. We use storybook Bibles to read stories from both the Old and New Testaments and discuss the teachings of our Lord.

科学

Our science curriculum is planned around inquiry-based learning. We use our current classroom themes to encourage children to ask questions about earth science, 生命科学, and physical science. We explore various topics such as the five senses, the way things move, living vs. nonliving, space, and the human body. 

社会研究
Social studies units have a heavy focus on community and citizenship. We study church, school, community helpers, how we obtain and trade goods, government, and diversity. We have guest speakers join our class to teach us about their professions and how we can be safe in our community. We focus on the acceptance of all people by exploring other communities and traditions in addition to our own. 

Spelling and Hand写作
Our curriculum incorporates the use of songs, dances, fine motor manipulatives (Play-Doh, etc.), wood pieces, and iPad apps. Each letter is introduced to the children as being made up of big lines, 小行, 大的曲线, and little curves from the Learning Without Tears series.  The curriculum first reviews all uppercase letters of the alphabet according to the way they are formed. After uppercase letters have been mastered, we learn lowercase letters. The curriculum also outlines lessons on sentence 写作, beginning with capitals, leaving spaces between words, and using punctuation correctly. Each child works in his/her own workbook throughout the year. All children in our Kindergarten program are encouraged to use invented spelling during the school year and into first grade.

Enrichment 活动

We attend each enrichment class once a week for 40 minutes. These classes include Computer,  Music, Art, Library, and 体育课 (3 times each week). Students have recess once daily for 20 minutes. We have 20 minutes for lunch and a small snack in the morning. Students also perform in the 网上赌博网站十大排行 Christmas Concert.
