Social Studies and Science
This year our staff is diving into the new science standards (NGSS). Our teachers will receive three days of training on the application of the standards into practice. In addition, we are meeting science standards by in-class experiments and investigations. We are also utilizing Project Lead the Way practices in our TK classes. Finally, students are completing readings and research and inquiry projects from our English Language Arts curriculum Wonders that meet different science standards. We look forward to exploring the NGSS standards further!
This year students are receiving social studies curriculum in their classrooms that meet the Social Studies Framework for the State of California. Teachers are utilizing our English Language Arts curriculum Wonders that meet different social studies strands and students are creating research and inquiry projects on the different social studies topic. We look forward to seeing the students projects and learning about their historical knowledge through oral presentations!
