• Now your child can improve his or her reading skills in a before school intervention with the same great technology program we're using in school, Accelerated Reading. This is a great opportunity for incredible growth for your child.

    Throughout the week I will have a before school reading program in Room 1 for 40 minutesEach day the classroom is open and they can feel free to come in for 15, 20, 30 or 40 minutes each morning. I will be using Accelerated Reading. Every student in the class get an opportunity, but books are customized to match each child's own Zone of Proximal Development for maximum growth. The reading level and testing will help us determine when to move their ZPD to higher levels throughout the year. As your child's reading level improves, Accelerated Reading levels will increase so he/she remains challenged and interested. Doing his or her best on their AR tests will ensure the best match between your child's ability and their ZPD level.

    Your child uses this program in class, but he/she can also benefit by having extra independent reading time at their ZPD level.

     

    Now your child can improve his or her math skills in an after school intervention with the same great technology program we're using in school: Accelerated Math. This is a great opportunity for incredible growth for your child. Your child can stay after school on Mondays and Thursdays from 2:55-3:25. They can also stay after school on Wednesdays from 2:15-2:45.

     

    I hope your students will join us for either intervention and extension programs that are being offered. They will enjoy finding the love of reading in the morning. This is a great opportunity for your child to continue their journey of excellence in Room 1 this 2016-17 school year. Last year all of my students received a medal and trophy for their achievements. I’m sure your child can achieve this too. It takes commitment and a desire to improve.
