2nd graders teach coding to kindergarteners
  • Learning

Given the fact that students in 2nd grade are being asked to participate in that digital world without the direct oversight of their teachers as they complete their homework, we needed to ensure our 2nd grade digital citizenship curriculum prepared students for that responsibility.

The Frida Kahlo dress
  • Learning

The Goldfish and Starfish embarked on a study of Frida Kahlo. They learned about her artistic life, where she was from and about her love for making self-portraits. Our pre-K curriculum already incorporates self-portraits, so this was the perfect way to connect the study of Frida Kahlo to a familiar theme.

A Day in Nursery and Pre-K

The educational philosophy of the early childhood years at Avenues is based on an underlying respect for the individual child. With this in mind, we provide an environment rich in opportunities for each child to grow in their understanding of language and how to work and play with others.

Digital Citizenship Curriculum
  • Learning

Digital citizenship is an effort to explicitly teach students how to act responsibly, safely and respectfully in our digital world. This year, we began an effort to both explicitly teach these skills to our Lower Division grades at the start of the year and also weave these concepts throughout all we do for the rest of the school year.
