Kindergarten Students

Wilson Language makes reading fun for students while laying the groundwork for life long literacy. All five areas of reading (phonic awareness, phonics/word sounds, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension) are incorporated into this multi-sensory (sequential) curriculum. Spelling and handwriting are integrated, as is literature-based reading instruction.

Go Math is designed to facilitate individual conceptual development, as students use manipulatives, pictures, and learning moduals to build understanding of math principles. Students are actively engaged in reason, then transition from concept on skill comprehension, and conclude with the acquired skills needed to solve problems in context independently.
