Managing Literacy Labs Takes Planning: Mrs. Fernee is Featured!
Implementing our EL Education Literacy curriculum has created opportunities for teachers to stretch their organization muscles and student’s learning potential! Putting the complex curriculum into motion takes planning, organization and thought. We are so proud that our own staff member is recognized by the EL Education organization as being exemplary! EL Education has a blog to help with the nuances of curriculum implementation. It’s interesting for staff and parents to read.
Please follow the link here to see our very own Mrs. Fernee featured for the thoughtful preparation involved with creating manageable and active literacy lab times.
Here’s a bit from Katie Shenk’s blog: “In this two-part post, we will answer the question “How can I manage space, students and materials during K-2 Labs to maximize student learning, engagement and independence?” To find out, we consulted Heidi Batchelder, kindergarten teacher at The Odyssey School in Denver and Kelly Fernee, kindergarten teacher at West Park Elementary School in Leadville, Colorado. They both offer helpful insights and tips for implementing Labs successfully (and working through the tricky spots too!).”
