    Our curriculum includes:
    • Maravillas and Santillana : We will begin the fun and precious process of becoming bilingual and biliterate in a hands-on, child centered environment. 
    • We will be learning a lot of academic and social vocabulary within songs. Be prepared for a lot of singing!
    • Math: Investigations and various resources approved by Kyrene School District.
    • Homework Policy: given on Monday and handed in on Friday. I will be sending home monthly homework, but it must be brought in the Communication Folder daily and signed weekly. Thank you for your support and dedication to homework!
    • The donation list is voluntary but very appreciated.
