Desert Sun Academy Kinder/First Grade
Our assignments are hands on in the classroom. Our homework includes DreamBox which supports our math curriculum and fills gaps. Smarty Ants is a great educational tool that increases letter/Phonics and reading skills, and Spelling City which supports Arizona State Curriculum. We also ask that you read to your child as often as possible. It is difficult to make up anything we do in class as we use stations and hands on mateials.
