Learning Resources

  • We use Reading Street Curriculum (2011) by the Pearson Publishing Company.   We love that it invites today’s learners to engage in high level thinking at a variety of levels.  Students spend time working at their own reading level daily while being challenged to progress.  Your child can do fun activities that support classroom learning and practice language skills at www.pearsonsuccessnet.com. This is also a great way for parents to stay engaged with school learning! Kids in K-5 have a password that they use regularly.
  • For our math program, we use the Common Core State Standards to guide our hands on, interactive learning.  You can learn more about what we teach at http://www.corestandards.org/Math/
  • MobyMax for reading and math activities!
    • Each Shawmut Hills student has a username & password – contact us for help
    • Sign in at www.mobymax.com .
  • Kahn Academy is a dynamic resource for kids and parents!  You can learn by watching a cool tutorial on almost any topic on earth!  Really, check it out!   Sign up FOR FREE- it will be worth the time!
