A coeducational day school serving 学生 JK-12

较低的学校

在拉丁美洲 we are trying to create an atmosphere that makes the children feel engaged and challenged at the right level. I want them to know that it is o.k. to make mistakes and that it is o.k. 向他们学习.

Danyelle Post, JK Teacher

The 较低的学校 is a place where children are treasured, where eager learners are encouraged to take the next step, to ask the next question and to 发现 the next truth.

Our 学生 publish their own books, 把戏剧, 主持艺术节目, participate in interscholastic athletics, and work on community service projects, all while building the educational foundation that will prepare them for the rest of their lives.

新太阳城的低年级教师在幼儿教育和初等教育方面得到了广泛的培训. Our 老师 use a team approach, gathering input from 父母 and on-工作人员 learning resource specialists—as well as their own close observations—to customize their teaching methods and content to address each child’s strengths and interests.

LS BHM Black Achievement

The Writing and Reading Workshops' informational unit gives fourth grader 学生 the opportunity to improve skills around re搜索ing, note-taking and summarizing and synthesizing nonfiction text.

Students in all three fourth grade homerooms spent weeks re搜索ing Black American inventors and makers, 作家和艺术家, 运动员和活动家. 照亮黑人的成就是学生们工作的一个重要方面. Culminating projects include a re搜索-focused paragraph, 一张海报, and a Google slide deck to present to their peers.

100th day of school 2022

On the 100th day of school, we celebrate. Senior kindergarten 学生 participated in lots of activities focusing on… math, of course!

SK 学生 rotated through four math stations:

1. Hop, Skip and Jump to 100 
学生5秒跳,10秒跳,25秒跳,数到100. 

2. 10帧保龄球 
Students knock down pins with a ball in a 10 frame formation. 学生们记录每一轮被击倒的木瓶的数量. The idea is to see groups and not count and to use the structure of 10 (with the 10 frame) to find out how many pins are knocked down. 

3. 快走,快走 
学生掷骰子,骰子有六种不同的动作(见下文). 
铲雪
让雪天使
pretend to throw a snowball
grow tall like a snowman
假装滑雪
像雪花一样落下

掷第二个骰子来显示每个动作的速度(快速、缓慢和正常). After performing the movement 10 times, 学生们使用10帧和动作图标来记录掷骰子的过程. 在旋转结束时,他们会数一数自己滚动了多少次. 

4. 投掷-一百一十 
Students pick a bean bag numbered one through nine. They throw the bean bag on one part of the mat. (example: a student picks the bean bag with "7" on it). 
The student then needs to make a 10 by throwing the correct number of bean bags on the other side of the mat (with 7, they need to pick 3 bean bags to throw). 

看他们如何行动!
