The Elementary Class

Welcome to our classroom!

Teacher: Ms. Shannon Rickard

The Elementary Class students are provided with meaningful, thought-provoking activities based on the requirements of the New York State Core Curriculum standards. Our focus is to encourage and develop inquiring, problem solving, knowledgeable young people through reading, writing and technology, as well as across other curriculum areas. We encourage students to become active participants in their learning environment by developing the ability to self reflect, take risks and explore new ideas.

A variety of teaching methods and resources are used to meet the requirements of the state curriculum.  Students work independently, as well as in pairs and groups, to create a collaborative working environment and promote effective learning. Lessons and units of study are designed to meet New York State English Language Arts Learning Standards in reading, writing and speaking; Our students are able to write about a range of topics and have background knowledge that will help them with the challenges of upper elementary school and beyond.  The NYS Math Curriculum includes conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and problem solving. Our social studies curriculum encompasses the history, geography, economics and governments of world communities and New York State in particular.   The science curriculum covers the topics of Earth Science, Life Science, Physical Science and Space and Technology.
