Levels of Meaning in Language Arts

First-graders in Amy Kulhavik’s class are jumping into their first unit, which involves a blended lesson of social studies and language arts. The students are working through basic sentence structure and punctuation, as well as focusing on the subjects of Hispanic and LatinX communities as part of their leveled reading program in Scholastic, which includes a digital library on iPad for Lower School students. “As part of a new initiative this year, we are weaving multicultural studies throughout our curriculum in different ways,” said Kulhavik. “By the end of the school year, the students will have a broad knowledge of many cultures and ethnicities and that knowledge will be integral to our focus on language arts and social studies.”
