Math skills begin in preschool with the daily calendar. Each morning, students will build on skills including patterns, number recognition, and counting up to 100. In kindergarten, they will problem solve with simple addition and subtraction and continue building a math vocabulary. Children will learn to count by 2, 5 and 10, tallying numbers, and sequencing. They will learn the value of money while solving math problems using coins and bills.
St. Theresa School staffs a Reading Specialist on sight to assist with students who are struggling. Also offered on-sight is a Speech and Language Pathologist.
|Reading skills development||
Our Early Childhood programs begin reading instruction by using blending of sounds, identifying sight words, summarizing, predicting, and sequencing. During small group instruction, children will become emerging readers. Our large renovated classrooms provide plenty of light and space making it an environment conducive for learning. Weekly trips to the on campus library enhance what is being taught in the classroom.
