In phonics, we try to master our phonics skills to become better spellers and readers. Our reading program allows students to work at their level for better reading comprehension in both small group and individual reading time.
At St. Wenceslaus, we use Saxon Math. This program helps build skills in our students such as: critical thinking, problem solving, and math fact mastery. Science this year is combined with preschool/kindergarten twice a month. When we are not together, students engage in earth, physical, and chemical sciences.
We are also combining art, technology, and Spanish with preschool/kindergarten! This allows for peer learning and more interaction between the grades. Seasonal art creations and artist inspired projects allow students to express themselves in many different ways. In preschool/kindergarten and first/second grade, our Spanish curriculum is new. In Spanish, students learn phrases and vocabulary for everyday items.
Second grade religion class sees the students working towards their First Reconciliation and First Communion, which will happen in February and May.
