Elementary: Pre-K to 5th Grade
At Zeta, students study Reading, Writing, Math, and Science every day.
Students embark on a journey to becoming lifelong learners and readers! During Guided Reading, students receive individualized support in small groups based on their specific reading level. Reading Workshop provides a time for teachers to lead the entire class, teaching reading skills for both fiction and non-fiction. During daily Independent Reading, students have the opportunity to dive into their favorite books and practice their reading skills.
