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.


  • 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.).

  • 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!
