Science in 1st Grade.

By Francis Carlier

In 1st  grade students start to work on different topics in Science. They manipulate, observe, make assumptions, draw and understand.

The Science program is an important part of our curriculum, from 1st to 8th grade.

3rd grade Forum

By Francis Carlier

Learning Geography at SDFAS is really easy since families come from all over the world. We just need to talk about where we are coming to go on a trip in our imaginations! This is what the 3rd graders did today when they presented during the Forum about the countries, cities and states they come from. From Asia to America through Africa, all continents have been visited while listening Mariachis, Frank Sinatra or “yodeling”.

Mathematics Manipulatives

By Francis Carlier

The students in fourth grade have started learning how to relate multiplication and division through the use of arrays. We were able to use the pattern blocks to demonstrate our understanding of building arrays. The students always benefit from having the opportunity to manipulate in mathematics! So a big thank you from us for your donations!
