Rising School classrooms will be resources with up-to-date learning and innovation opportunities for our students. Each classroom will have smart board technology as well as access to iPads for learning.
Rising School KG1-G2 classrooms will provide “centered-learning” classroom layouts in the lower grades to promote tactile discovery. They include role-play areas, individual and group areas, welcome and goodbye locations as well as science discovery and wet/dry play areas and of course a book or literacy area. We will have classrooms that are bright and inviting. We will also have areas clearly marked with names and pictures. We want these classrooms to represent all families and cultures and be inclusive of Islamic and Arabic values.
In later years, the layout becomes a little more structured but still inviting to learning. Reading areas with ample reading resources, small group instruction areas, and full group instruction areas are important to the set up. Promoting routines and procedures are important in these age groups and having ample space for bulletin boards, white boards, and even smart boards is important.
