Nightly: Your child is encouraged to read daily..
Every other Monday your child will receive a list of 10 words. The spelling sheets have suggested activities that you and your child can complete on your own i.e. writing, saying it orally, using cut out letters, on a chalk board, painting, with play dough, etc. This helps with memory and makes it more enjoyable to them. Spelling Programs will be differentiated according to the needs of your child (i.e. Bonus words, less words, etc.)Weekly Homework Program
GOAL – for the students to be proficient readers and writers
What is Team Teaching?
All instructors are jointly responsible for curriculum and assessment. However, instructors take turns presenting material to different groups. This type of teaching involves dividing the class into smaller groups according to learning needs, or grade specific units of study.
What advantages are there to grade specific instruction?
Due to the extensive curriculum required to be taught and learned in both Grade Two and Three, the children will benefit from grade specific instruction. This way we can do a better job focusing on the content and inquiry in each grade.
When will grade specific instruction occur?
It will occur during Science and Social Studies. Please see Science and Social Studies chart for more specific information.
Who will be assessing my child?
Referring back to our team teaching philosophy, both Mrs. Birnbaum and Ms. Sherman collaboratively create and assess all tasks.
