Welcome to Ms. Summers’ Kindergarten & First Grade Bridge Class!
Queen of All Saints Catholic Academy’s Bridge Class is taught through Center Based Learning with one head teacher and one part-time teacher aide. Ms. Summers fosters a welcoming and engaging environment across all subjects, following the New York State Common Core and Next Generation learning standards while incorporating technology into the classroom daily.
Kindergarten aged student’s expectations include solidifying and expanding upon the basics they have learned in Pre-Kindergarten. In this classroom, students are encouraged to think critically and creatively so they will grow to be a successful, confident student that is eager and ready to read and write. Throughout the year we encourage and enforce the development of positive interactions with peers, responsibility for self and belongings, a strong foundation in independence and collaboration within the classroom, and a value for kindness and respect in our everyday actions.
First grade is a crucial year for building reading and writing, problem solving, and mathematical thinking skills. Students are expected to define themselves with respect to what kind of readers, writers and thinkers they are and can be. In this classroom, our first-grade students are welcomed into a positive learning environment where reading, writing, and discussion are encouraged daily. This academic year, students are transitioning from a “play-based” school curriculum to a more academic setting. Students are expected to work independently, complete and hand in homework on time daily, be able to plan ahead, and understand different points of view from peers and teachers.
