The concepts of mathematics are organized under six strands: Algebra/Patterns/Functions, Geometry, Measurement, Statistics, Probability, and Number Relationships and Computation. Each of these concepts are developed through Problem Solving, Communication, Reasoning, and Connections. The goal of Fallsmead’s mathematics program is for all students to achieve mathematical proficiency through the development of both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency.
Through whole group and guided reading instruction, Fallsmead Elementary School’s reading program addresses the process of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. These processes are the tools that enable students to effectively communicate. Through the integration of listening, speaking, reading, andwriting teachers create authentic and meaningful learning situations for students.
Social Studies instruction helps create literate, well-informed citizens who take an active role in a democratic society. Students critically examine past events and decisions and their impact and importance on present and future events.
The goal of science instruction at Fallsmead is to foster and encourage the natural curiosity of students as they explore and gain an understanding in the concepts of life science, chemistry, physics, earth/space, and environmental science. By following the scientific method, students are actively engaged in the process skills of science throughout real world applications.
