Welcome to the 2021/2022 school year. I hope all of you had a safe and relaxing summer. I'm looking forward to getting back to work with my K-4th grade Literacy and K-2 Math groups! I am in rooms 2,3 and can be reached at extension 171.
Grades K,1,2,4- Literacy:
I am very happy to begin a new school year in Reading/Language Arts. We utilize Fundations and Schoolwide (modified) which is linked to the general education classrooms. Many other intervention phonics and reading programs are utilzied based on the individual needs of the student. The students are exposed to a multi-sensory learning environment that suits individual needs. Homework is important and given approximately 4 times per week. Your child will be given a reading log along with some reading materials. It would be helpful if your child reads every night! If you have any concerns, or need homework to be further modified, please do not hesitate to contact me. I consider it very important to be part of your child's education. I believe that together, we can make this a successful year!
In math, we will be utilizing the Envisions Math Program used in the general education classrooms. The students will learn the TouchMath strategies to help them with basic skills (counting, adding, subtracting, etc.). Additional programs, with many opportunities for hands-on activities, will be implemented to benefit all types of learners. Again, homework is important to reinforce skills learned and will be given approximately 3-4 times per week.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns you may have. With your help and support, I believe we can have a wonderful year in Math!
For additional practice, have your children visit these educational and fun computer websites:
