The teacher facilitates learning through a quality environment. Provocation tables, strewing, or invitations to learn aid in the process of choosing subjects. Children dive together into topics.
Math and reading instruction are taught through hands on, mini lessons and children naturally scaffold their own practice on subjects.
Science is taught through hands on experiments, investigations into inquiries, and nature exploration.
Children are read to daily and have multiple opportunities to read to each other from quality texts.
Children learn responsibility through daily writing assignments.
Social needs are supported through group projects, discussions, and imaginative play.
Children of all levels work in a one-room style classroom.
