Elementary School

General

Literacy, writing, math, science and social studies are taught based on the Common Core Sunshine Standards. Differentiated instruction is provided by the Waterford and Succesmaker computer programs to ensure that every child receives an individualized education that meets his needs.

Kindergarten

The focus of Kindergarten is on developing the skills needed to transition from Early Childhood into Elementary School. The day is divided between General and Judaic Studies.

A more structured environment allows children opportunities to participate in whole group lessons in addition to working on specific skills in smaller groups. With guidance from the teachers, students are given time to work at learning centers that encompass math and reading skills, creativity and writing, social studies and science.
The Superkids program by Rowland Reading is used to teach reading, writing, and literature skills. Progress in Mathis used for math instruction. Science and social studies lessons are incorporated into the program daily. The Waterford Early Learning Program provides differentiated instruction, on classroom computers.

During Judaic classes, Hebrew language is spoken fluently by the teacher and the students, and is an integral part of the day. The students learn the weekly Parsha, participate in chagim studies, and are taught the Aleph-Bet as the foundation for Hebrew reading. Torah personalities that embody Mitzvot and Middot are highlighted as role models for our children.
The teachers continue to stimulate a love of learning and thinking and encourage problem solving when faced with interpersonal dilemmas and personal choice in one’s free time activities. A sense of independence and self-confidence is fostered in the classrooms, enabling every child to excel to her maximum potential.
