Casas is embarking on its 4th year of using the English Language Arts & Writing curriculum Great Minds Wit & Wisdom in Kinder through 8th grade! This novel based and universal theme based curriculum has helped build knowledge of key topics in history, science, and literature through the study of excellent texts.
Throughout the year, we encourage families to continously ask their children what texts they are reading in class and what focusing question are they diving into that week! Below are "Parent Tip Sheets" for each grade that help families get familiarized with the topics, essential questions, and texts our students will be diving into this first quarter. It also provides parents questions to ask at home, suggestions for books to read at home, and recommended places to visit to connect to their learning!
