Hello Room 307 Families! Between Spring Break and our transition to a full day schedule, April has come and gone in the blink of an eye!  We still have some very tired friends in the afternoon, but we are slowly building our school stamina! Our new lunch routine is becoming just that – routine.  Without a cafeteria full of students as we are typically used to, there are less distractions present, and the noise level is much quieter.  When students have finished...

Hello, all! March is flying by.  Here’s what we’ve been up to! In Reading Mastery:  We are continuing to work on letter sound recognition and formation.  Everyone is doing a great job during our listening activities, especially when we use our whole body to imitate two-step actions.  We will be getting to rhyme and syllable segmentation in the near future.  We have also transitioned to using our workbooks in class instead of the copies you’re used to seeing being sent home. In Equals: ...

Reading Mastery and Equals are both continuing on a regular basis.  We are reviewing some previously addressed skills and...

Hello Room 307 Families, As Special Services continue to monitor in-person programs, they believe it is time to extend the school day and provide more access to in-person learning for students in our class.  It is understood that this is another change, and some of the change could be a great impact to your family.  Starting on Thursday, February 25th, our LRCII program will extend to 3.5 hours of in-person instruction from 9:15am – 12:45pm, four days a week.  Wednesdays will remain fully-remote.  Therapists and...

Hi, Room 307 Families! We are well into February and just over a week away from celebrating Presidents’ Day and Mid-Winter Break.  As we wrap up our winter theme, you may see materials being sent home for extra skill-building practice.  These activities are a great way to build language and vocabulary.  Please reach out if you’d like more ideas for engagement. Here is an update on what we’ve been up to: Upon arrival, friends are smiling, waving, and greeting each other with eye...
