P.S. 24 students have a wide range of opportunities to learn about literacy in a way that promotes reading, writing, speaking and listening in their daily lives. Teachers use a variety of appropriate, appealing and substantive literature and non-fiction books to involve students with reading. The formal spelling program begins mid-year during first grade. Handwriting is taught and emphasized throughout the students’ K-2 experience. Sharing writings and insights about literature are also key components to the English Language Arts program. Mathematics, students participate in hands-on learning experiences that foster curiosity, basic mathematics skills and beginning problem-solving strategies. Key to this is providing ample opportunities for students to explore, use manipulative and practice, which enables students to begin the transition from concrete mathematical thinking to abstract thinking.
