As Ms. Di always says, “If you can laugh; you can learn.” With humor and respect, Miss Diane and Miss Kathy create a classroom environment where children feel safe and at ease, which makes them ready to learn.
Using a multi-modality approach that involves hands–on, written, and oral work, Miss Diane intertwines language arts and mathematical lessons within science based thematic units. Some of these units include: landforms, the ocean, space, and insects. Kindergartners don’t just read about volcanoes: they write about them, study them, and build them!
Kindergartners explore the world around them by taking field trips to the Fish Hatchery, Theater, Pumpkin Patch, Discovery Museum, Art Galleries, Library, Native American Museum, and Folsom Zoo.
