Our Curriculum

At Smart Star Academy we have incorporated 3 different curriculums in order to give your child the best well rounded learning experience. Our curriculum is based off of Monthly Themes, Zoophonics, and we have incorporated Spanish as well.

Zoophonics

  • The Zoo-phonics® Multisensory Language Arts Program is a kinesthetic, multi-modal approach to learning all aspects of language arts, including vocabulary development and articulation, based on phonics and phonemic awareness.

  • The principle of Zoo-phonics® maximizes understanding, memory, utilization and transference to all areas of the reading, spelling and writing process in a playful and concrete manner.

  • Zoo-phonics® uses animals drawn in the shapes of the letters for ease in memory. A related body movement is given for each letter. This concrete approach cements the sounds to the shapes of the letters. Lowercase letters and their sounds are taught first (needed 95% of the time in text), capital letters and letter names are taught later.

  • Zoo-phonics® also provides a springboard for all other academia such as math, art, music, cooking/nutrition, social studies, science, grooming, physical education and sensory/drama.

Base Curriculum

  • Each month, classes focus in on specific elements in order to introduce your child to new things every month.

  • These themes include things such as: letters of the alphabet, numbers, shapes, opposites, colors, gross motor skills, character traits, and monthly themes/events (i.e. New years, ice & Snowflakes, Forest Animals, Bugs, etc.).

Spanish

  • Each Class will be introduced to Spanish vocabulary that is appropriate for their age.

  • By introducing children to spanish early on they can develop early language skills, understand english better, broaden their cultural horizons, and more. Plus it is fun!
