LEARN

Instructional Spotlight

We are highlighting Ms. Dominguez for her use of the Jan Richardson Guided Reading lesson plan template. Ms. Dominguez previewed three vocabulary words with students before transitioning to reading the story. Ms. Dominguez had a different plan for each reading group and had targeted skills she worked on. Great job Ms. Dominguez!

Coaches' Corner

Morning meetings are a school-wide practice that originated from the Responsive Classroom model, which is based on the idea that students' social-emotional growth is just as important as their academic growth. Symonds teachers adapt the Responsive Classroom model of a morning meeting to fit their classroom needs, using it to create a classroom culture where students feel safe, supported, and ready to learn.
