Early Years are Learning Years
What We Teach
Illinois Early Learning Development Standards: In planning classroom activities, we utilize the IELDS. We introduce developmentally appropriate concepts and experiences to help the students meet readiness standards.
Handwriting Without Tears: We introduce letter concepts and handwriting skills with the HWOT program. Your child will be bringing home practice sheets for use at home.
2nd Step Curriculum: We teach social skills and coping strategies with the 2nd step series. Our classroom behavior will be focused on learning about emotions and how to interact with others.
Whole Brain Teaching: Our classroom rules and expectations follow the Whole Brain teaching methods. Our classroom functions based on the needs of each child.
Technology Use: We will be using Ipads and computers each week in our room. We will choose the games and websites for the children according to ability and subject matter.
