Welcome Back to School Class 5!
Welcome to Class 5! We are frequently updating this site so please come back and check our updates - especially our photo section below to get a sneak peek at what we are doing from day-to-day.
Please be sure to check and return your child's communication book on a regular basis for communication purposes.
If you know your child will be absent from class, please call the office or let me know through the communication book. Of course, if you have any questions or feedback we are always happy to listen.
About Our Program
Our program in Class 5 consists of many different learning opportunities for students to explore core communication and sensory-based literacy and math experiences in whole group, and small group settings. Core communication is a large component of our program, as students participate in core language daily through modeling core communication boards and devices such as the Step-by-Step. Students participate in whole group and small group programming throughout the day promoting classroom unity and friendship. In whole group learning, students partake in turn-taking and communication through sensory exploration of stories which teach or reinforce new skills and concepts. Small group and individual one-on-one learning focuses on students' individual learning goals where specific skills are taught explicitly through differentiated instruction. Access to a variety of technology provides students with the opportunity to explore independently under the watchful eye of team members who are always right there to assist students as needed.
Here is a sneak peek at our developing schedule.
