Hello Sleepy Hollow Families!
It never takes long to transition from the start of the school year to the meat and potatoes of the school year. It’s October and we are already well into our routines and instruction. And instruction looks different this year! We have a new ELA (English Language Arts) curriculum, Wonders, that is supported greatly by the 1:1 initiative and Google Chromebooks. As I type this, students are getting ready to pack up for the weekend and our 3rd-5th grade students will be bringing home their Chromebooks!
Teachers have been working hard to implement the Wonders program with our students and it relies on an interface called Haiku. Our teachers use Haiku to develop lessons and push assignments out to students. They also have a home page for parents with information about their classrooms....
