Mathematics: Math is seen as another language. We could call the subject “numeracy” in keeping with “literacy”, which may more accurately reflect our understanding of the subject. Children need practice in mathematics in order to build confidence, and they often do best when the approach to the subject allows them to grow their sense of number over time. A “spiral curriculum”, one that keeps returning to certain basic concepts while at the same time pushing outward, meets the needs of most children. We work with math standards established by the National Council of Mathematics and draw our resources from the Miquon Math Program, Bridges Mathematics Curriculum, Math Their Way and Marilyn Burns material.

The Curriculum in Action:
Students Write about Time
Lake and Park School relies on volunteers to support a broad range of projects. We ask our families to tell us their skills and interests so that we can call on them to help us. Parent volunteers do things like plan events such as the annual Hoedown and Halloween Carnival, provide snacks, raise funds, and work in our garden. Parents and grandparents also contribute to our learning experiences when they share their expertise in a particular area.
Parent shares her knowledge of bees during a study of pollination and bees.
Grandparent shares stories about her grandfather who worked with Thomas Edison during a study of light and electricity.
