CLASSROOM INFORMATIONThe Read 180 and Learning Strategies Classroom follows a specific format of a brief whole group and 3 rotations daily. During the 3 rotations, the students will have 15- 20 minutes in each setting. They will have Small Group with me to work on specific skills for Math, Reading, and Behavior. Independent Rotations will be a time to read books on their lexile level, complete reading comprehension/writing acitvities, or work on math fluency and computation. The last rotation is Instructional Software, where they will work with programs designed for their skill level.Students will be required to work through the Software modules, complete Reading Counts Quizzes based on their lexile leveled books, and take formative assessments to demonstrate their skills and progress within each program they are using.FastBridge will be used on Fridays to progress monitor skills in reading and math.
Behavior ExpectationsWe will be following the school-wide RAM'S Matrix to the fullest extend. I expect all students to come into my classroom prepared for the day, and ready to learn. I expect respect to be given to me and all other students, just as I will be respectful to everyone. I expect a peaceful learning environment where we take turns, share, and discuss the day's lessons/readings openly and honestly. I expect the Code of Conduct to be followed. I expect my students to work hard, try new things, and have fun learning with me.
