A Day in the Life of a PASD Kindergartener:

English Language Arts:

Our balanced literacy program includes Writing Workshop, Reading Workshop, and Fundations, with interventions such as, Language Experience Approach (LEA), and Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI).  Our program promotes integrated instruction with collaborative and highly engaging literary experiences, such as readers' theater and word games.

Mathematics:
Math in Focus concentrates on problem solving and learning to understand the "how" and "why" of mathematical concepts in order to develop strong mathematical skills.  Instruction incorporates concrete (e.g. manipulatives), pictorial (e.g. graphs), and abstract (e.g. numerals) pedagogy to achieve mastery in skills, along with highly engaging games and activities.

Science:

Students explore science themes using the integration of reading and hands-on activities and experiments with the following topics: seasons/weather, the five senses, plants, insects, and animals.

Social Studies:

Social Studies themes are explored using the integration of reading and engaging activities on the following topics: what it means to be an American, rules and laws, and making a difference.

School-wide Positive Behavior Supports (SWPBS):
Students are supported using a research-based framework that implements behavioral support strategies through consistent modeling and practice, guided by data-based decision-making.

Kindergarten Specials: Some of the proposed ideas for Kindergarten specials in this full day model include music and movement, nutrition and wellness, technology, art, yoga, mindfulness, social skills, dance and theater.
