These first years are ordered to the acquisition of the skills necessary for any further learning. At this stage the student should concentrate on learning to read well, and learning to write, both in terms of letter formation and power of expression. He should also spend time acquiring facility in addition and subtraction. If these skills are learned well, all the rest of his school time will be much more profitable and his education will be more complete.
As a parent and teacher the time spent with your child is valuable. If he does not learn to read in kindergarten or first grade, it won't finally make much difference in his life. But you should spend time reading to him during these formative years. The saint stories, the tales of noble actions performed by noble people, and the fairy tales, with their clear divisions between good and bad, will make a lifelong difference.
This program is so well organized, so well run, so seamless for all of us, it’s so well coordinated and yet the parents do have input, and you are still flexibile and work with us, and the consultants are amazing and the teachers, are amazing. I feel forever a part of the MODG family. Enrolling was one of the best decisions I have ever made!”
