Learning How to Read

Children learn not only how to read, but also how to correctly pronounce letters and sounds, which a very important part of any language development and learning process.  Teachers work with children on developing the “phonemic’ ear, highlight the sounds and later syllables in the word, put together words by using various syllable combinations and much more. 
All classes are conducted in a play form, ensuring that each child is engaged in the learning process. The letters are taught with the special focus on development of speech and sound in parallel with the development of fine motor skills.  Some of the authors, whose works are used in the program include Kurizyna E.M., Taraeva L.A., Bortnikova E, Buneeva E.V.
Social Studies
Social studies go hand in hand with speech development, where teachers work with children on learning new vocabulary, using synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, various figures of speech, etc.  During the lessons we play live and table theater, recite poems, create short stories – in all these activities children become very engaged participants. 
The primary goal of the math program is foremost develop math curiosity, as well as fundamentals of the math concepts, creative and critical thinking, ability to solve a math problem and explain why the proposed solution is correct.
In our classes, we use textbooks and workbooks developed by Peterson L.G., Kochemasova E.E., Kholina E.P.
Expected results: development of the speech fluency, active and passive vocabulary, social communication skills; understanding of the foundation of language and math concepts, learning the simple physics, biology and chemistry of the world around us.
