Learning Experiences at Desert Star Academy Preschool & Pre-Kinder:
During small group instruction teachers conduct math and reading lessons individually while other scholars rotate independently through learning centers. Desert Star Preschool uses a structured reading readiness program and activities that enable teachers to build each scholar’s listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. All scholars will learn 20 sight words and related vocabulary. They will learn letters, letter sound associations, decoding and emergent reading skills. They play word games, and highlight the use of rhyme and alliteration in specific books and nursery rhymes. This program is researched based on scholar success. Math development is supported by hands-on activities. This program builds on number sense and what the scholar’s already know. They learn to sort, classify, distinguish the same and different, and count to 50. This program is researched based and has proven to prepare scholars for math success in the future.
