grades 3 – 5
Reading, Writing & Math
The Intermediate level curriculum features a strong academic program designed to prepare students for middle school studies. Students in grades 3 – 5 transition to a literature-based language arts program, which includes the study of novels, poetry, short stories, and non-fiction. Students do a great deal of writing, explore all modes of writing, and learn the 6-traits that characterize good writing. At this level technology is fully integrated into the curriculum and students utilize their technology skills to create a variety of projects. Our Lady of Lourdes adopted the common core math program in 2012-2013. Our staff has done extensive training in the common core math so that students who are capable can be challenged.
