Our curriculum is designed to accommodate learners of various levels in one classroom. The structure of our classes follows a three-part lesson. In the first part we reinforce constant themes such as numbers, feelings and directions. In the second part we introduce new vocabulary for the group of students we are teaching. For some students this part can serve as a review for some it will serve as a preview of things to come. We then break into small groups with Montessori inspired independent work. During this second period, the instructor will move between these groups offering small group lessons. During part three of our class, we learn and reinforce themes using gross motor activities. We often incorporate themes such as actions, dates and body parts.
