WHAT TO EXPECT

Students will have whole group instruction, work with partners, and work independently in their notebooks. Additionally, students will be working on skills directly related to their IEP goals.
Math: Students will be working in groups on foundational skills, practicing emerging math skills for their grade level in the upcoming school year, and working on skills directly related to their IEP goals. Ascend Math Program
Transition/Social Skills: Students will be learning basic everyday skills, such as when to say please and thank you, personal space, healthy relationships, facial expressions and body language. They'll learn how to communicate about their emotions and when a break is needed.
Please accept the invitations to each of the 3 Google Classrooms that will be utilized for ESY. This will allow you to stay up-to-date on your child's lessons and assignments.
