The main objective of Learning Support is to provide a safe learning environment for struggling students to achieve their greatest potential. Many students that come to LS are having difficulties in Reading and Math. Some students that attend LS do well in school, but test poorly on state exams.
In Learning Support, Mrs. Connolly provides small-group and Differentiated Instruction, so that she can try to meet the individual needs of her students.
Computer-assisted instruction in ELA and Math is also offered as part of Learning Support. Mrs. Connolly aids students as they work on software applications geared toward their grade level targeting their individual needs.
Students can utilize our Learning Support team as needed, typically two to three times a week.
A Note from Learning Support
Welcome back! If you’re anything like me, you are happy to be back into a routine, even if that means being too busy and living (literally) in your car. It also means having to balance work, home, and school responsibilities. No doubt you have already had to contend with your children about homework, reading logs, and how many clubs or sports in which they are allowed to participate. Sound familiar? I thought it might.
Kids who need extra support in reading, writing, and math can be especially resistant to new learning in school, and practicing learning at home for many reasons, not the least of which are: frustration with grade-level work, lack of focus, disorganization, and low confidence levels. If this sounds like your child, you are not alone. Here are some tips that may help you assist your child throughout the 2016-17 school year:
• When preparing for tests, quizzes, or larger projects, start early. Studying or working a little bit each night increases a feeling
of accomplishment-cramming doesn’t work.
• Set aside a time for homework each day, preferably the same time whenever possible.
• Make sure work areas are neat and quiet.
• Let your child do his/her own work, but check for quality and accuracy.
• Discuss any concerns directly with your child’s teacher as soon as they arise.
Together, we can make this school year a positive experience for your child. As always, whether you are a parent of a Learning Support student or not, I am always available to help you support your child’s learning. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me through the school office.
