Lakewood's First Annual Curriculum Night
Lakewood Elementary School held it's first annual Curriculum Night on Tuesday, August 10, 2021. Parents were invited to join the faculty and staff to learn about the programs the school and school system utilize to assure their students are successful in achieving the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards. Parents learned about the Collaborative Literacy suite of reading products used in Kindergarten through 5th grade including, Being a Reader, Making Meaning, Being a Writer, and SIPPS. They also learned of other additional reading resources being used including Heggerty's Phonemic Awareness Program and S.P.I.R.E. Parents received information on the new math curriculum from McGraw-Hill, My Math. And they learned about additional online programs their students have access to including Lexia and Freckle Math. The ARI Reading Specialist also provided a brief overview of the Alabama Literacy Act, how it affects their students at school and at home, and how parents can best support their students at school and at home with respect to reading. It was a night jam packed with vital information!
