K-2 Nurturing Program
Nurturing for a Bright Tomorrow for Grades K-2
This program is designed to:
- improve young children's observation and description skills.
- develop academic vocabulary.
- clarify thinking processes that underlie content learning.
- improve students' understanding of mathematics, social studies and science concepts taught in kindergarten.
Students will develop six thinking skills throughout the course of this program. The six thinking skills include: observing, describing, defining, finding similarities and differences, sequencing, and classifying. These processes were selected because of their prevalence in academic disciplines, particularly mathematics and science instruction. The lessons are designed to teach the six thinking skills in the sequence in which a child develops intellectually.
