What have we done so far, and will continue?
Our common vision is “Success for all through learning and caring”. Our Literacy Goal is aligned with the District Framework for Enhancing Student Learning, and we make our decisions and shape our process through this lens. Our shared goal is to have all students reading at grade level, or meeting goals as outlined in their IEPs by the end of Grade 3. Embedded in our Literacy Goal is our Social Responsibility inquiry. They are developed simultaneously in order to create successful readers and contributing members of society. Again, this is aligned with the District purpose to “Inspire all learners to reach their full potential and create a positive legacy for the future.”
What are we going to do next?
· We will continue to strive to meet students where they are and allow them to access learning at their level and with differentiated instruction and assessments as needed (ex. Word Works Daily, Guided Reading Groups, Literature Circles)
· Due to different strengths and learning styles in students, we will work to provide them the opportunity to shine in different ways that will help them achieve success (ex. Choice in books they read and are assessed with, Daily 5 choice in learning activities)
· Because learning and caring go hand in hand, we will provide students with opportunities to care and develop connections to their learning. (ex. Orange shirt day, Respect and Diversity day, reading stories, writing, reflecting on the meaning of their learning)
