The Purpose of the PEARLIZED MATH CURRICULUM is to provide strong, well-rounded, language-enriched mathematics foundations in KINDERGARTEN & FIRST GRADE, as set forth in the TEXAS ESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS (TEKS).
Emphasis thoughtout the curriculum and staff development consists of:
· a thorough, conceptual development of mathematics and science/measurement skills.
· a hands-on approach to problem-solving, as mandated by the State of Texas criteria.
· a vertical alignment to the STATE OF TEXAS ASSESSMENT OF ACADEMIC READINESS (STAAR) in each of the designated grade level components.
The PEARLIZED MATHEMATICS CURRICULUM is a structured, comprehensive program that provides daily lessons in English, and blackline masters available in Spanish, with a variety of tools to differentiate instruction and explicitly develop strong foundations in mathematics for our children.
Children will be actively involved in:
Acting out problem situations
It is evident; however, that understanding takes time. Children need that time utilized through multiple opportunities and experiences in a wide variety of contexts to construct the most effective means in acquiring that knowledge and understanding. The components set forth in the PEARLIZED MATHEMATICS CURRICULUM will, undoubtedly, provide that "prime-ary" foundation for our children.
MORE SUCCESSFUL, CONFIDENT CHILDREN AND TEACHERS!!!
A child will not only become more confident with mathematics but will discover their overall unique potential - academically and socially as well.
