• Classroom Environment
    Our kindergaten classroom environment reflects real, relevant teaching and learning.  Our classroom curriculum incorporates all the language processes (listening, writing, speaking, and reading) in a meaningful context using a balanced literacy approach that values purposeful reading and writing.


    Our classrooms encourage children to see themselves as readers, writers, and problem solvers.  We value the process as well as the product, and understand that all the children are unique individuals.  The teaching process is based on what we know about how children learn.

    As kindergarten teachers, we strive to:
          - Immerse students in oral and written language, offering ample opportunities for
            experience and practice.
          - Create a cooperative classroom where children are encouraged in a positive way.
          - Create a print-rich environment.
          - Give children choice times during the day, where they have opportunities to be
            responsible for their own learning.
          - Provide multiple opportunities for children to work independently, in large 
            groups, and small groups.
          - Allow opportunities for the teacher to observe and record children and their learning.
          - Give children experience with the real mathematical and scientific processes.
