Unlock Your Child's Literacy Potential at CHUMS!

At the core of our Kindergarten literacy curriculum are the consistent, systematic, and developmentally appropriate components recommended by The Science of Reading. The Heggerty Program model, which focuses on phonemic awareness, is a comprehensive approach that includes daily mini-lessons, independent reading and writing, and group discussions. The Heggerty Program model is an approach that champions phonemic awareness: the ability to hear and manipulate the sounds in spoken words. This approach enables early readers to notice how letters represent sounds and primes children to sound out and read new words. Our students also use decodable books, secret stories, and alphabet letter arcs.  When used in conjunction with the Heggerty Program, they satisfy the five main components fundamental to reading: phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. 

Handwriting Without Tears is a fun and engaging developmentally appropriate handwriting curriculum that enables children to master handwriting as an automatic and comfortable skill. Multi-sensory activities and manipulatives appeal to all learning styles and provide a hands-on approach to handwriting.

Our Mathematics curriculum, Investigations 3  is a focused, coherent, and rigorous mathematics curriculum. Deep and careful attention is paid to mathematics content and to student thinking and understanding. Making sense of mathematics is the heart of the work, for students and teachers. This curriculum is hands-on learning and supports a range of learners. Investigations 3 focuses on numeracy, place value, number writing, comparison and number identification.
