1st – 5th grade Elementary

Our Elementary Program at St. Mary of the Purification features programs that seek to fulfill differentiated instruction through small groups while implementing the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) and the Archdiocesan Standards.

English Language Arts Program utilizes Literacy First Curriculum in line with the Archdiocesan Instructional Model.  Through Literacy First students in the 1st and 2nd grade are issued phonological awareness , phonics , and fluency assessments at the Beginning of the Year, Middle of the Year and End of the Year to find where they are in their literacy development.  Teachers then structure students into small groups based on need from these assessments to teach lessons from literacy first to increase students ability to read.  Grammar skills are taught daily through whole group instruction and the classrooms implement writing workshops to increase writing skills.  Third through fifth grade students are assessed on fluency and work throughout the school year similar to 1st and 2nd grades structure.

St. Mary’s Mathematics Program utilizes Math In Focus: Singapore Math Learning program.  This is a complete mathematics program that focuses on fact fluency, computation, and problem-solving.  Similar to the language arts program, students are assessed periodically throughout the school year.  Our multi-age groups students however in the math program are taught through small group instruction based on need.

Our Science curriculum follows the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) and the Archdiocesan Standards with the use of Nacny Larsen Science Program.
