Best Practices in Teaching & Learning

The teaching and learning focus of 4K in the Oak Creek-Franklin Joint School District includes:

  • Providing active learning opportunities through play-based and explicit teaching and learning experiences.

  • Utilizing robust learning centers and hands-on opportunities to explore real-world objects, engage in dramatic play, and build foundational social and academic skills.

  • Ensuring a print-rich environment with opportunities for children to read, listen to, and respond to books.  Students will explore concepts of print including letter names and letter sounds. Students will recite poems, sing songs, and notice print in their environment.

  • Celebrating the start of lifelong learning, growth, and success for each child, based on individual learning needs and characteristics.

  • Connecting deeply with parents and families through valuable and relevant outreach opportunities.
