QSI Yerevan's elementary program is designed to nurture student’s curiosity and motivation in their learning while supporting the mastery learning approach in gaining content proficiency. We strive to develop the whole child by engaging students in core subjects (reading, writing, mathematics, science and cultural studies) and special subjects (art, library, music, physical education, technology, and Languages Other than English). We invite you to learn more about the different age-level programs by clicking on the images below.

The elementary classes are continuing to enjoy the sunny weather during PE classes. The preschool and 5 year-olds are continuing to work on developing their gross motor skills while trying to understand the concept of time and space and movement patterns. They often participate in obstacle courses, relay races, group games and learn different dances.

This past week the 5 year olds at QSI Yerevan learned about Thanksgiving. We read "Twas the Night Before Thanksgiving" by Dave Pilkey and other stories. We talked about what it means to be thankful and picked 4 things we were each grateful for. The students then wrote out a list and illustrated each item for our bulletin board. In math, they designed a tail for their turkeys using imagination, pattern block shapes, and symmetry. We are thankful that we are classmates here at QSI!
Many students participated in the STEM Week Upcycling Challenge. There was a great variety of entries, and students enjoyed seeing what others had created. Projects ranged from candy-wrapper curtains to plastic bottle flowers, an amusement park, and a bowl made of cutlery. It was wonderful to see both the enthusiasm and creativity our students have!
