    K, 1, 2
  • Curriculum spirals concepts are introduced and
    revisited throughout the year
  • Family letters help explain the units topics and
    terms
  • Some concepts are introduced differently than the
    way we learned them. Referring to the family
    letter will help you reinforce how concepts are
    being taught in the classroom.
