Welcome to readyK at Moore Elementary School!
readyK is an innovative program developed by special area teachers at Moore Elementary to advance brain stimulation and brain development by integrating cross-curricular areas of art, guidance, library, music and physical education. Experiences and activities of readyK prepare brains and bodies of young children for success in the classroom.
Daily participation in readyK anchors concepts, knowledge and skills. The program addresses readiness challenges of kindergarten children more effectively than traditional 30-minute classes meeting once or twice weekly. Repetition, intensity and frequency of daily participation in readyK produce first grade students well prepared to learn reading, writing and mathematics. Students who have participated in readyK also demonstrate skills and confidence in all special areas (art, guidance, library, music and physical education), far surpassing results obtained prior to implementation of readyK.
Every child . . . Every day . . . Every discipline
