Math/Science Program (Tues/Thurs)
Our Kinder-2nd grade Math program is a beautiful combination of Reggio Emilia and Waldorf learning concepts. Manipulatives will be introduced to learn various math concepts. The curriculum includes number recognition, decimal system, geometry, four operations of math: addition, multiplication, subtraction and division. Waldorf's beautiful math fairy tales and art projects help children create and solve their own word problems, building a strong foundation for future Algebra concepts.
Our 3rd-6th grade students delve more deeply into the four operations. The curriculum includes telling time, metric system, fractions, percentages, business math and economics. Math is also applied in various creative projects such as woodworking, cooking, and running a business. Every Spring the children set up a Marketplace Day where they organize and set up small businesses of their own.
Science: Science projects are implemented into our Math program. K-2nd grade have fun and practical science such as making volcanos, lava lamps, handmade lip balm and soaps allows students to apply math in a meaningful way.
3rd-6th grade explore and delve into subjects such as biology, chemistry, earth science, nutritional science, chemistry, engineering and robotics. Hands on projects include building RC cars, experimenting with chemical reactions, and designing/cooking a nutritious meal.
