Kidsparkz is also used by the teacher to enhance the curriculum. For our Pre-Kindergarten Program, we use Saxon Math and Scholastic Guided Reading Programs.
Unique Pedagogy Saxon Math™ is the only major math program on the market today that systematically distributes instruction, practice, and assessment throughout the academic year as opposed to concentrating, or massing, related concepts into a short period of time—usually within a unit or chapter.
Saxon Math's unique approach to math instruction ensures that students not only gain but also retain essential math skills. No matter how well students initially learn a concept, if they are not able to retain their learning, connect it to other concepts, and apply it in problem solving situations, they have not reached mastery.
Saxon Math is designed to support the long-term mastery and applications that will make a difference during testing, future education, and careers.
- IncrementalConcepts are taught in small, approachable increments.
- DistributedIncrements are spread throughout the year, building in complexity, so that by the end of the year students have reached deep understanding and fluency.
- CumulativePractice and assessments include concepts from the most recent lessons as well as from earlier in the year, ensuring students retain all concepts and can make connections between them.
Scholastic Guided Reading Programs support a comprehensive reading program by integrating differentiated small–group instruction, assessment, and independent practice into your classroom. Teachers begin by grouping students, then prompt, encourage, and confirm how students apply problem-solving strategies as they read.
