Grades 3-5 Program Preview

INSTRUCTIONAL MODEL

Students in grades 3‐5 are building upon the foundation laid in the early grades while still developing basic skills in the core academic areas. Students independently complete their activities through our interactive resources in reading, math, and science daily. Our Paragon curriculum, which also integrates math and reading, provides more of a hands-on experience through project-based learning. Students have the opportunity to meet with their teacher and classmates two to three times per week through our web conferencing program. Through these weekly interactions with their peers and teacher, students are able to develop a strong sense of community with each other. A typical day will include the following breakdown of time: 120 minutes of Language Arts, 90 minutes of Math, 90 minutes of Paragon, and 60 minutes of Science.

CURRICULUM

All curriculum is fully aligned with state and national (Common Core) standards. Students will master benchmarks through an engaging program that addresses the following content areas:

  • Language Arts: Reading and Literature; Writing; Speaking, Listening, and Viewing
