Curriculum Instruction

A Leader in Me School

Lyn Knoll develops character and leadership skills in all students by using The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Leader in Me provides students opportunities to learn and practice skills that are valuable for a 21st Century learner. These skills develop our students’ confidence as well as interpersonal and problem-solving skills. The 7 Habits are embedded throughout the day and are celebrated by those students who demonstrate the Habits on a consistent basis. More information on Leader in Me can be found here: theleaderinme.org

Mind, Brain, and Education

Lyn Knoll believes purposeful movement embedded throughout instruction results in higher levels of cognitive growth. Therefore, physical education and movement are embedded in every student’s schedule every day. Each day all students are engaged in lessons that use kinesthetic learning techniques to increase student engagement and participation. Students also participate in 30 minutes of physical education as well as purposeful movement breaks every day. Finally, students have opportunities to participate in our ACES (All Children Exercising Simultaneously) three days a week before school. More information on Mind, Brain, Education can be found here www.gse.harvard.edu/masters/mbe.
