Grades K-2 Program Preview

INSTRUCTIONAL MODEL

At the K‐2 grade levels, teachers work closely with parents/guardians to ensure that a schedule is created and that parents/guardians have all supplemental materials and knowledge needed to guide students throughout the day.

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 each day through our web conferencing program. Through these daily 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:

Throughout the day, students work on their assignments with the help and guidance of both their teacher and parent/guardian. At the end of each day, K-2 students participate in individual progress sessions with the teacher to ensure students have successfully completed the day’s lessons.

Quick Fact: Grade Level Programming
