Our Primary English (International School Students) Programme is designed specifically for students who attend international schools. It is closely aligned with International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum and U.S. Common Core State Standards.
Three major components can be found in this programme: 1) Writing, 2) Reading, 3) Grammar & Vocabulary.
Narrative & Non Narrative Writing
KidsEdge’s approach to Creative Writing is to train children to develop creativity and shape their thought processes so they can think independently and insightfully. Our programmes enable children too:
- Read fluently and with understanding
- Express themselves clearly and effectively
- To write creatively and think independently
- The narrative section will have your child executing personal and biographical writing in no time!
- The expository section emphasizes writing form, develops informative and descriptive writing skills while learning to organize, format, and write essays and reports.
- The persuasive writing curriculum teaches your child to compose effective letters, editorials, and reviews.
2. Reading Comprehension
