Rocklin Academy’s Core Knowledge curriculum offers students the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of a variety of social studies and science curriculum topics. Our teachers work diligently each week to incorporate interactive and technology based activities that enhance the learning of Core Knowledge topics and subjects. Over the past month, we challenged teachers to put their Core Knowledge learning into action and were amazed at what we observed our students working on.
Our fantastic second grade team invited the Mandarin Dance Team, from Western Sierra Collegiate Academy, to visit our school campus and perform a traditional ceremonial dance. This fascinating assembly brought our student’s learning of Early Civilizations in Asia to life. In fourth grade, students were practicing note taking and comprehension skills by viewing an engaging video clip about Songhai (A Medieval African Kingdom) and then asked to transfer their learning onto a graphic organizer. Third grade students were creating digital media slides to demonstrate their understanding of animals groups and taxonomy. Fifth grade writing and art is proudly hung on walls and windows showcasing student knowledge of Early European Exploration and Meso-American Civilizations.
These are only a few examples of the hands on and meaningful learning opportunities happening in every classroom on campus. We are very proud of our teachers hard work in planning and preparing such engaging activities that seamlessly blend structured content learning, with hands on projects. We know that these activities allow students to demonstrate their understanding of content in a variety of ways and foster creativity and highlight their 21st century technology skills. Our students' hard work and dedication to growth and learning can be seen throughout the grade levels and classrooms on a daily basis. At Rocklin Academy, we love our rich Core Knowledge curriculum and the many opportunities it allows our students to have and experience each and every day at school!
Want to know how to help your student stay safe in the Digital World? Then plan on attending our first annual parent Cyberbullying and Social Media night on October 3rd at 6:30. The event will be held on the Gateway Campus located at 6550 Lonetree Blvd. We will have an administrator from the Roseville Police Departments Social Services Unit speak on Cybersafety topics. Space is limited at this event so we are making this a parents only night. All Rocklin Academy Family of Schools parents are invited to attend this very informative evening. We hope to see you there!
