We have done the research and feel this is a spectacular program that is in line with The Caepe Preschool’s vision. This program is theme based and covers all skills (academic, gross motor, and fine motor) necessary for every preschooler.
In 1956, Benjamin Bloom headed a group of educational psychologists who set out to develop a classification system for levels of intellectual behavior important in learning. Bloom and his colleagues identified six levels within the cognitive domain; verb examples that represent intellectual activity on each level are listed below:
- Knowledge: arrange, define, duplicate, label, list, memorize, name, order, recognize, relate, recall, repeat, reproduce, state.
- Comprehension: classify, describe, discuss, explain, express, identify, indicate, locate, recognize, report, restate, review, select, translate.
- Application: apply, choose, demonstrate, dramatize, employ, illustrate, interpret, operate, practice, schedule, sketch, solve, use, write.
- Analysis: analyze, appraise, calculate, categorize, compare, contrast, criticize, differentiate, discriminate, distinguish, examine, experiment, question, test.
- Synthesis: arrange, assemble, collect, compose, construct, create, design, develop, formulate, manage, organize, plan, prepare, propose, set up, write.
- Evaluation: appraise, argue, assess, attach, choose, compare, defend, estimate, judge, predict, rate, core, select, support, value, evaluate.
Bloom found that over 95% of test questions students encounter only require them to think at the lowest possible level—the recall of information. Bloom and his colleagues established a hierarchy of educational objectives—Bloom’s Taxonomy—that is now widely recognized as the leading approach to early education.
Phonemic Awareness In Young Children
This is a research based program that gives children the necessary foundation to become proficient readers.
The individualized plan is for students who will enter kindergarten next school year. Our teachers know what every child needs in order to be ready to enter kindergarten. Children in this plan will be given ongoing assessments to target their needs and to build necessary skills.
