This is the second grade intensive preparation curriculum. This course is designed for students who have completed first grade curriculum and are rising to the challenges ahead in second grade. It contains 6 lessons and meets for 2 hour per week over the summer. Whereas most summer math programs are remedial in nature, our program is a more rigorous review of previous skills learned. It will require students entering the 2IP class to apply prior knowledge learned from first grade (1A and 1B) material to solve more challenging word and non-routine problems, thereby improving and expanding their abilities. One-time educational material fee: $15.00 USD. Tuition cost: $50.00 USD per student-class-week.
Concepts taught are:
Lesson 1: Ordinal numbers. Addition and subtraction within 10. Addition and subtraction within 20.
Lesson 2: Length. Mass. Picture graphs.
Lesson 3: Addition and subtraction within 40. Mental calculation.
Lesson 4: Multiplication and division.
Lesson 5: Addition and subtraction within 100. Mental calculation.
Lesson 6: Time. Money.
Our Intensive Preparation classes are an ideal way to improve your children’s math skills and fully prepare them for the coming academic year, while avoiding the nearly universal deterioration of math skills that results if children neglect math over the summer.
