Elementary School (K-Grade 5)

 

Grades K-5 focus on literacy skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Students learn the art of the English language through the 6+1 Trait Writing Model of Instruction and Assessment and the Daily 5 literacy framework. Numeracy is a daily focus as students work to gain a balance between concepts and procedures, while developing sound mathematical practices.Science, social studies, visual art, music, physical education, and world language are instructed in a student-centered approach of practical hands-on learning. Technology is integrated throughout the curriculum.

 

The Big Idea

At RAS, teachers develop subject-specific process skills in order to provide multiple opportunities for students to acquire the RAS General Learning Outcomes. Content of a subject area, delivered as a means for students to explore the overarching practices and concepts, results in forming an independent, life-long learner.
