Learning at Floranada

  • Reading, writing, math, science, and the arts are all essential skills to develop in children at a young age. The more children learn when they are young, the better they become as adults. We want to teach your children the academic skills they will need to prepare them for their next level of learning.

  • Reading and Writing

    Students learn to read, write, speak, listen, and use language at an early age. At our school, we provide students with the skills necessary to be successful from their school years through their careers. Our reading and writing instruction helps students use a balance of informational and literary resources. It also provides opportunities to use academic vocabulary in speaking and writing.  Students also learn how to write using text-based evidence.

    A child's success as a reader begins much earlier than the first day of school. Reading, and a love for reading, begins at home.

  • Mathematics

    Our mathematics instruction builds conceptual understanding, develops students’ procedural fluency, and promotes higher order thinking skills. In learning and understanding mathematics, our students develop “habits of mind”. They learn math strategies, talk about the math they are learning, and solve problems. These mathematical practices help students learn to apply mathematics to real world situations.

  • Science

    Science helps our students engage in inquiry-based learning from a critical thinking approach. Engaging lessons allow students to experience science directly or through rich multimedia. Our instructional approach puts students in positions to research and find solutions.

  • Social Studies

    Social Studies helps our students develop informed and logical decisions for the public good. As citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society, and interdependent world, we teach our students how to be informed citizens. The foundation for Social Studies teaches our students to ask questions and think about topics in areas of American history, geography, economics, civics, and government.
