    Grades: Your student will earn a Pass/Fail grade for Language Arts, Social Science, Science and Math. Achievement will be measured on progress of IEP goals. They will earn a letter grade for classes in general education.

    Curriculum: Curriculum used in the class is Unique Learning System (ULS) and News-2-You (N2Y). More information on ULS and N2Y can be found at n2y.com.  Every month, there will be a new unit theme which includes chapter books, new vocabulary words, correlating math pages and life skill lessons.  Students will use Moby Max for asynchronous learning. This website is MobyMax.com. These websites are capable of taking data on the student's performance for their IEP's.

    Community Based Instruction (CBI): Our class plans to go on 2 CBI's a month to places within our school's neighborhood. This may not begin for a few months. Students will work on mobility skills, social skills, money skills, life skills and more. CBI's will be on the monthly calendar found in your child's homework binder. If you have any questions about these CBI's please feel free to contact me.

    Cooking: We cook every other Thursday in our class. We make simple recipes that the students will follow. We practice measuring, prepping and kitchen safety.

    Homework: Homework will be assigned on Mondays and must be turned in on Monday. Free time on Fridays and field trips are dependent on homework being turned in on Friday. Homework is meant to take 30-45 minutes per day and should be done independently. It is often a repeat of lessons assigned in class during the week.

    Progress Report Dates: Progress on your child’s IEP goals will be sent home in December and May.

    Supplies: Students will be provided school supplies in the classroom. Please send in ear buds or headphones to be used with the Chromebook. 

    Behavior Management: Students are expected to behave with respect in our classroom. Our rules are 1) Use kind words 2) Be ready to learn 3) Raise your hand or be ready when called on 4) Keep your body to yourself 5) Ask permission to leave the class 6) Listen to all staff and peers
