Curriculum

Curriculum and Instruction:

OGES staff follows the curriculum guidelines for each grade level and subject area as defined in the Colorado Academic Standards. Our plan of instruction includes the following curriculum resources provided by MCSD:

Good Habits, Great Readers:    
Students will work in whole group and small guided reading groups.  Our approach emphasizes a balanced approach to reading. Phonemic awareness, phonics and vocabulary form the foundation for learning to read, while development of comprehension and critical thinking skills keep kids growing in their reading.

Bridges Math:  Bridges math curriculum develops a deep understanding of mathematical concepts and key skills.  Students work with materials that are kinesthetic, visual and engaging through direct instruction and guided investigation.   

STEM: Oak Grove is working towards implementation of a STEM experience for students. The experience, implemented in 2018-2019, will emphasized creative problem solving using all areas of knowledge and curriculum. Our foundational work currently includes cooperative learning, aligned Science instruction at all grade levels, technology as a tool, a basic understanding of engineering, and an aligned Math curriculum.

Social Studies: Students learn to relate to their community, participate in society, and understand the human experience through history and geography.

Exploratory Classes: Students have the opportunity to learn and grow in physical education, music, art and technology throughout the year.

Exceptional Student Programs: Additional programs exist to support exceptional students, including Special Education, English Language Development, and Gifted and Talented.

If you have any questions about these programs, please follow up with information online, or follow up with your child’s teacher.
