Mighty Scholars Preschool Academy uses a combination of traditional, centers and Montessori inspired teaching methods. Together, the curriculum forms a nurturing, rich and meaningful opportunity for learning through play-based themes, along with student-led and teacher-led hands-on intentional activities.
Students receive whole class instruction, as well as small group and one-on-one tutoring at their individual level of skill development–whether that be fine-motor, name recognition, letters/sounds, CVC/decoding, or even life skills.
Pre-K (Kinder Prep) pre-reading and reading skill development is taught through a science of reading aligned, systematic guided phonics program.
The science of reading, guided phonics curriculum helps scholars develop necessary orthographic mapping skills through: letter-sound associations, phoneme awareness and crucial word study instruction to connect phonemes to the written word. Sight words are integrated throughout the spiraling phonics lessons as irregularly spelled "heart" words and decodable high frequency words, rather than relying on rote memorization of words like shapes–which can cause frustration and confusion later on.
