Green Cluster (Grades K-1)

Welcome to Green Cluster from Cathy Furer and Christine Nagatsuka

The Green Cluster Theme:   “Who Am I? Discovering Myself And My World.”

The curriculum focuses on self-discovery and how we are connected to the world around us. During the first part of the year the children begin learning about themselves, their senses, and their bodies. Later we expand this to include their families, their culture, and other cultures of the world community. We end the year by learning about the environment and how we influence and are influenced by it.

As children develop beginning reading skills, math awareness, and problem solving skills, they also develop as learners and friends. Green Cluster emphasizes group cooperation and individual responsibility towards the group. Green Cluster’s activity-based program has many options from which children can choose, encouraging them to become independent, life-long learners. Our emphasis is on early literacy, using a variety of approaches to guide and inspire children to develop a love of reading and learning.

Welcome to our new and returning parents.  We had such a busy and productive first week of school.  We spent last week getting to know your children through activities and assessments.  We are are in the process of assessing your children in handwriting, fine motor skills, phonemic awareness and reading skills.  We went on a Bear Hunt in order to introduce the different areas of our school campus.  We all had so much fun.
