Reading: We use the "Readers Workshop" model. MLK Jr. Elementary devotes 90 minutes per day to reading instruction. The daily literacy block blends whole group and small group instruction with independent practice so that students have many opportunities to practice the skills they have been taught. Every learner has access to digital tools such as online games, which enables them to extend their learning.
Writing: All our teachers have been trained to use the "Writers Workshop" model for writing instruction, kids will write in their writing journals daily. they will edit, rewrite and finalize mant genres of writing throughout the year.
Social Studies: Our teachers integrate history and social studies into all other subject. This allows the kids to learn that all subject are inter-related, and not taught in isolation.
Math: We use the “Math in Focus” program, which provides students with instruction that emphasizes real world situations. Lessons include time for whole group instruction, small group, partner and individual activities. In partnership with the Explorations in Math program, we are creating a culture where teachers discuss math with other teachers and plan lessons together. All teachers have been trained to teach the new Common Core Math standards that have been adopted by 47 states.
Science: All our teachers have been trained in the use of the district's science kits for their grade level. Inquiry based science is taught which requires our students to use the scientific method and reflect on their learning in their science writing journals. This is a hands on science program that keeps our kids mentally engaged.
Technology: Our teachers integrate the use of different forms of technology to aid their instruction. Our kids also use those forms of technology to research, create and present their projects.
