Elementary Program

Curriculum (Morning Elementary Program / Afternoon Elementary Program)

The curriculum for both Morning Elementary Program and Afternoon Elementary Program actively implements our Learning Tree values and The Council of International Schools’ global citizenship guidelines. The syllabus closely follows the Common Core standards of the United States with well-established programs such as Reveal Math and Benchmark Advance.

1. Social-Emotional Learning
Social and emotional learning is an important part of education and development. By using the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) framework, we are able to create an environment where the social and emotional needs of the students are prioritized alongside their academic growth. Each week, we will learn about and discuss different topics related to self-management, self-awareness, social-awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. Students will learn how to navigate their emotions while also being considerate of the feelings of their peers. They will learn how their actions and decisions affect their day-to-day lives.

2. Benchmark Advance
We have adopted the well-established Benchmark Advance curriculum, https://www.benchmarkeducation.com/benchmark-advance-adelante, which believes in learning through reading, writing, and discussion. In this interdisciplinary program, the focus areas - literature, science, and social studies - work cohesively with language arts to help the students grow in multiple areas of knowledge. Students engage in critical thinking and discussion, building perspectives and developing content knowledge. Grade by grade, knowledge grows; students begin each grade with essential background information, then expand their topic knowledge and vocabulary throughout the year. The Benchmark Curriculum is aligned with the American Common Core Standards and provides space for real-world perspectives. The alignment with authentic educational situations captures the minds of learners. The students spend 3-4 weeks on a unit, exploring multiple texts around a central idea. As they progress through each unit, students will work on inquiry-based assignments to demonstrate the skills they learned. Science experiments, activities that utilize research and presentation skills, as well as art and craft exercises foster hands-on experiences with the unit topics.

3.Reveal Math
We utilize the Reveal Math curriculum and methodologies, which is based on the American Common Core Standards. The insightful instructional resources aid in effective differentiation and the promotion of a growth mindset. Students explore their curiosity with mathematical examinations and discovery that deepens conceptual understanding. The program has a variety of possibilities with purposeful technology that creates an active classroom experience. Each new skill is introduced with sense-making routines and a focus question to help students develop their own mathematical ideas before moving to the abstract concept. Teachers and parents will understand the student’s progress through a range of assessment tools that the Reveal Maths Curriculum offers.
