Horizons Summer Learning
Lesson plans for the summer are required. Both Lead and Co-Teachers are expected to collaborate to add value and bring their expertise in the CORE subjects of reading, writing and math to help prevent summer learning loss.
Lesson plans should be aligned with grade level state standards in reading, math and writing.
Lesson plans are to be uploaded to the shared Google Drive each week on Friday before leaving.
You will have access to your student STAR scores to help guide your instructional planning this summer.
Our reading specialist will provide additional training on how to effectively and efficiently use this data to improve student growth.
Yolanda Charles, our reading specialist will meet with you each week to provide strategies and training to support you and your students.
