Pre-K or Emersion with Cross Curricular Connections

Connections is a comprehensive standards-based curriculum which implements research-based practices and processes proven successful in classical early childhood studies. The program uses age-appropriate screening assessments that quickly identify children’s greatest needs and guide objective-based instruction for individual students and the class throughout the year.

Explicit, Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) instruction introduces every lesson with hands on manipulatives to help children develop understanding of essential math concepts. CRA instruction is perfect for young minds as they physically explore, discover, and communicate the essential math concepts and develop problem solving skills every day.

Helping Young Learners Connect to Math

There are 16 children’s stories creatively woven into the curriculum to connect math to the real world and make it fun. Oral language skills are strengthened through small group activities while connections to Learning Centers for art, music, science, drama, ABCs and games provide greater understanding and enrichment.

Connect to Home

Parents and families are engaged with family letters, activities and games to support student learning. These letters provide an important link between school and home, sharing information about the math being taught, suggesting books to read, math words to use and fun activities to do at home.
