Cubby House incorporates multiple teaching methodologies to provide children with the best possible learning experience. The series focuses on fostering cognitive skills and motor skills development. Children consolidate what they have learned by doing a project at the end of every unit.
Scope & sequence
With Cubby House, students will:
- learn English while developing their cognitive skills.
- develop their fine and gross motor skills by running, dancing, jumping, imitating animal movements, drawing, tracing numbers and cutting with scissors.
- explore their creativity, reinforce fine motor skills and consolidate their learning with a project every unit.
- develop mathematical thinking, like recognizing numbers, counting, and identifying more and less.
- establish reading skills through fun, original stories.
- learn about values, building a sense of community and wellbeing.

Eight units of four lessons each are set around different topics. A CLIL lesson explores an area related to the unit topic, and learners reinforce the unit vocabulary and language with a Review page at the end of the unit. Children can have fun with the enchanting Popouts (in level 1) and Cutouts (in levels 2-3) at the back of their books to complete certain activities in the lessons.
