Learning Explorations at Pinewood
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.
The district has moved all students to the Clever platform where they can access all of their applications without having to remember specific urls, usernames, and passwords for each application. Your child should be using their Clever account to access iReady. They may think the Clever launchpad is only used while at school, but it can also be used from home. Log in to Clever

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 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.
