Letter Sound and Formation Practice
Our Preschool-3 children, both in-school and remote, are systematically introduced to the letter sounds of the English alphabet. Every letter is initially identified by its sound rather than its name.
Scenes from Second Grade
Second grade is a special year in the writing lives of children. They are growing up and able to write with greater facility and sophistication. The children are eager to be given important new challenges and proud of their growth and progress.
Exploring Three-Dimensional Art
The Third Graders have been exploring three-dimensional art in our most recent unit. Together we have discovered ways to sculpt, mold, and design with air dry clay, model magic, papier- mâché and recycled art materials.
