Grades K-3

K-3 Push-In Program

The purpose of the K-3 PoGStudio program is to provide all children with differentiated educational experiences that will stimulate logical and critical thinking, creativity and imagination, abstract conceptualization, leadership, problem solving, and task commitment.  Differentiated activities and hands-on learning encourage critical thinking through analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.  Students utilize the "4C’s" – critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication in order to grow as 21st century learners. All lessons attempt to enhance existing curriculum in each grade and provide another dimension to the child’s growth. The classroom atmosphere is designed to develop a positive level of self-esteem and self-worth, which will complement all aspects of classroom learning.

 

The K-3 program stresses the belief that all students benefit and learn from higher-order thinking activities.  In addition, it assists the classroom teacher and the PoGStudio teacher in gaining insight into the unique strengths and talents of each student.  While this whole class model emphasizes full class involvement, it also recognizes the importance of working with small, differentiated groups depending on the activity. 

The PoGStudio teacher collaborates with classroom teachers through staff development and/or in-class assistance to provide instruction within the classroom setting, serves as a resource to the classroom teacher, and as a liaison for incorporating innovative and rigorous tasks into the everyday curriculum.
