Curriculum Highlights

Literacy

Literacy is integrated throughout the instructional day in all curriculum areas. It is formally taught through small group instruction, centers, and whole group activities. Small group instruction allows teachers the opportunity to guide each child's learning in a nurturing academic environment.

In Kindergarten through Second grade, Sujana uses the Orton-Gillingham method to teach phonics, spelling, phonemic awareness, and reading. This multi-sensory program includes sequential and cumulative instruction of phonemic awareness, encoding and decoding. It also includes guided reading, independent reading, and conversational writing.

Handwriting

Our kindergarten handwriting program focuses on pencil grip, letter and number formation, as well as strengthening small motor and visual motor skills.

Mathematics

Sujana Lower School uses the Everyday Mathematics curriculum. Developed by the University of Chicago School Mathematics Project and published by McGraw-Hill Education, Everyday Mathematics is distinguished by its focus on real-life problem solving, balance between whole-class and self-directed learning, emphasis on communication, facilitation of school-family cooperation, and appropriate use of technology.

Value Education

Implementation of value and moral education is a must for the youth. Even the behaviour of the youth towards the elders in discourteous ways is really worrisome. From the child hood onwards parents & teachers should give proper guidance.
