Hello Students. I hope you and your families are all staying healthy and safe. Please take good care of yourselves. 

We (teaches) have been instructed to not assign you any work this week. This is a good time for you to read a good book. Many of you went to the library last week and have taken books home. 

I am in North Carolina visiting my father and may not be able to respond to emails until next week. 

Take good care!

Ms. McClymont

Hola estudiantes. Espero que ustedes y sus familias estén sanos y seguros. Por favor cuídense bien.

Nosotros (los maestros) hemos recibido instrucciones de no asignarles tarea esta semana. Este es un buen momento para que lean un buen libro. Muchos de ustedes fueron a la biblioteca la semana pasada y se llevaron libros a casa.

Estoy en Carolina del Norte visitando a mi padre y es posible que no pueda responder a correos electrónicos hasta la semana que viene.

¡Cuídense mucho!

Sra. McClymont

This class is for dual identified students (Sped and ESOL).

ESOL goals are aligned with each student's IEP goals in each of the four language domains: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing

Quarter 3:

Students are taking ACCESS and Alternate ACCESS throughout the month of February and the first week of March. Please make sure you eat a healthy breakfast every morning and get plenty of rest each night to help you do your best on this important test.

Level 1 Students: We are using A-Z readers, highly engaging texts that contain many basic sight words, rich vocabulary, colorful images, and much repetition to help students retain new vocabulary. Each child reads at his or her individual reading level.

Last quarter and this quarter we are focusing on writing sentences with our AAC device or pencil.

Level 2 Students:  Some students are using higher level A-Z readers, highly engaging texts that contain many basic sight words, rich vocabulary, colorful images, and much repetition to help students retain new vocabulary. Other students are using Scholastic News Readers which contain high interest articles about real world events. These articles are also rich in vocabulary and images to help students understand content. 

Last quarter and this quarter we are focusing on writing sentences and paragraphs about books or articles we read in class.

Parents:  Please read with your child every day. After you read, ask your child questions to check his/her comprehension.

Questions you might ask:

  • What was this book about?
  • What was your favorite part of the book?
  • What was the setting?
  • Who were the characters?
  • Who was your favorite character? Why did you like him/her?
  • Was there a conflict? What was it? Was it resolved?

Try to build connections between the topic of the book and your child's real life experiences. For example, if you are reading a book about machines, discuss some machines in your home, such as a dishwasher, blender or vacuum cleaner.
