Elementary (Grades 1 - 5)
In the first through fifth grades, our students grow into readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, and engineers. They are guided in developing social skills, character traits, leadership, and community building. They grow their Jewish identity and Hebrew skills. They become independent thinkers, collaborators, and investigators.
We proudly use a structured literacy program, FUNdations, a science-based curriculum that uses multi-sensory lessons to lay the groundwork for life-long literacy. This program focuses on reading, writing, spelling, and handwriting.
Our math program uses the Singapore Math learning method, which uses three distinct approaches to understanding mathematical concepts and problem-solving. It uses the concrete to pictorial to abstract approach and encourages students to actively think, understand, and communicate to solve math problems.
Daily life at Yavneh school focuses on character and skill-set development, such as teamwork, empathy, kindness, perseverance, etc. We utilize our signature Keshet of Kavod program, morning meetings, closing circles, and buddy activities to help our students develop resilience and healthy social-emotional awareness.
