Curriculum

Reader's Workshop- Each Reading Workshop session begins with a mini-lesson that lasts approximately 1015 minutes. During each mini-lesson, the teacher introduces a specific concept, also known as the teaching point. Most often, the teachingpoint focuses on a reading strategy or skill.  The teacher will explicitly model or demonstrate the skill for the students. Students then get a chance to practice the skill or strategy on their own or with a partner.  This part of the mini-lesson is called the active engagement.

F.A.S.T-is the phonics curriculum that teaches decoding skills for phonics (letter sounds, sight words)

Math in Focus-is our math curriculum that will help students gain depth of understanding, fluency with skills and confident in problem solving. 

Engage New York- (Supplemental Math Curriculum)

The New York State Next Generation Mathematics Learning Standards (2017) reflect revisions, additions, vertical movement, and clarifications to the current mathematics standards. The Standards are defined as the knowledge, skills and understanding that individuals can and do habitually demonstrate over time because of instruction and learning experiences. These mathematics standards, collectively, are focused and cohesive—designed to support student access to the knowledge and understanding of the mathematical concepts that are necessary to function in a world very dependent upon the application of mathematics, while providing educators the opportunity to devise innovative programs to support this endeavor. As with any set of standards, they need to be rigorous; they need to demand a balance of conceptual understanding, procedural fluency and application and represent a significant level of achievement in mathematics that will enable students to successfully transition to post-secondary education and the workforce.

Writer's Workshop-is an instructional model that utilizes modeling, guided practice and independent writing practice.  The model helps student to write narratives, opinion and informational pieces.
