Classes for primary grades cover both math and language arts in a once-a-week 2-hour class. Our primary grade classes uses games, crafts, puzzles, building toys, and other hands on activities to provide students with a challenging and exciting academic environment.
Students in these classes are typically advanced readers; the students in these classes are often reading several years above grade level; however, they still require writing and math instruction at a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade level. At HEROES, we understand that students’ academic skills develop at different rates. Our classes are designed to accommodate this discrepancy.
