Math concepts are taught through group activities and discussions, independent learning activities, exploration and problem solving, and manipulative games and art projects. The math curriculum includes:

  • Numbers: single-counting, skip-counting
  • Sorting and classifying: Differentiate between same and different objects
  • Time
  • Money: identify coins and their values
  • Measurements: differentiate between length and width of various objects, explore weight and temperature
  • Patterns: identify and create different patterns


All students are encouraged to investigate and explore scientific concepts around them. They develop the knowledge and ability to use scientific tools, skills, and methods of scientific inquiry. Science unit includes:

  • Life Science: observe different plants and parts of the plant, describe the function of plants in our lives, distinguish between living and non-living things, observe similarities and differences between living animals, describe animal’s life cycle, etc.
  • Physical Science: Identify the movement of objects, observe magnets and classify objects according to their magnetic properties, indentify vibrations and sound waves, differentiate between solids, liquids, and gases
  • Earth Science: identify seasons and types of weather, identify tools used to measure weather, describe the changes in animal and plant behavior as seasons change


Themed activities every week are integrated in teaching reading and language to the students. Listening and speaking are highly encouraged to build oral communication skills. Students will listen to book reading and songs and retell the stories and try to sing-a-long to the songs. Reading comprehension is guided before, during, and after reading books. Students learn new vocabulary through using the story’s context to determine a word’s meaning.

Social Studies

Through hands-on activities, students can explore the globe, different countries and their culture. Geography lessons include climate and weather conditions in different parts of the world. Performance activities help students learn about drama and cultures of the world. Calendar activities teach students significant dates and ideas pertaining to those dates.

Field Trips

Various field trips are planned throughout the year that are relevant to the lesson taught that week. Field trips include the police station, fire station, post office, the store, movie theatre, park, library, etc.
