K2 - Pandacorns

Pandacorn Overview

In Pandacorns, we start term 1 with upper and lower-case recognition. By the end of term 1, Pandacorns have gone through the alphabet twice. First time focusing on letter recognition, the second time on phonics. After the first three months, they will develop a strong grasp of the alphabet, progressing to 3 letter words. At the end of the Pandacorn year, students are comfortable reading 3 letter words (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) as well as writing in upper and lower case letters.

For Math, students work throughout the year on the following competences: counting, adding/subtracting, graphs and geometry. It is an on-going work. Students will also use manipulatives to solve word problems. Assignments are also provided to evaluate the students’ understanding of the concepts.

For science, a concept is introduced at the beginning of the month. Activities are held throughout the unit, leading to a problem that needs to be solved through experimentation. Students are given ample time to try, adjust and come to conclusions. Experiments include making a boat that floats, a tree that is strong enough to hold  weight, a house that stands, and among many others.
