In an effort to meet the needs of all diverse learners, an abundance of books in a classroom library is essential. By providing books, student reading levels are supported by matched to ‘just-right books’. Phonemic awareness manipulatives, letter boards, dry erase tablets and gel board/ pens are also incorporated to develop sound-symbol correspondence.
The goal of this project is to guide students to become fluent and expressive readers. A collection of Big Books texts and a document camera will allow students to see text clearly, learn critical concepts, build frequency, decode words and develop vocabulary.
The goal of this project is to provide amplification in the upper grade classrooms so that students can overcome acoustic obstacles and achieve greater academic success. The CAT is a whole room audio system that allows the teacher’s voice to be amplified and heard regardless of where the students are seated in the classroom.
In conjunction with an iPad, the Science department will utilize LabQuest2 standalone Data Collection Devices to engage the students in ‘hands-on’ and ‘minds-on’ learning. The probes provide students with the opportunity to quickly acquire real-time data and facilitate real work inquiry-based learning in a STEM environment.
Due to the multi-use nature of the auditorium and its impact on nearly every program and department within the school, upgrading the sound system provides immediate and long-lasting benefits for our students, faculty, parents, and community. By addressing the loudspeaker system, the audio upgrade will improve audio coverage, quality, and versatility to the sound system.
