The curriculum at EDUPRIZE focuses on the whole child. Every child is nurtured as we differentiate our program to meet their academic and social needs. Our remarkable language arts program consists of a strong phonics based language arts curriculum, thematic/science-based units (better known as Cottages), Lucy Calkins writing/language arts program, and application based readers.
Students participate in research-based language acquisition strategies, which reinforce sub-skills in a whole to part fashion. Kindergarten students experience language with multiple modality applications including journaling, word walls, rhyme, and word building. Mathematics instruction includes Eureka Math, daily math applications through calendars, and C.G.I. methods (cognitive growth instruction). Students are allowed to demonstrate core concepts in mathematics through journals and job boards. Math strategies are taught in the younger grade levels where children not only practice daily math skills, but they put into their own words the problem solving methodologies and use concrete operations. Students use manipulatives to extend concepts from concrete applications to connective strategies and finally to abstract number concept. At EDUPRIZE, learning is fun because children are 100% engaged in hands-on learning.
Rhythm and music, art, technology instruction, and hands-on life science labs are also offered. Science is taught daily through our thematic units called Cottages and students apply their math and language arts through products and projects for their cottage focuses. Technology is also used daily to better meet the needs of every child and to challenge those top performers.
