Room 218October 10, 2023
Welcome to RM 218 GRADE 1/2!
Hello, I’m Margaerite Acero teaching Grade 1/2. In Room 218 Students will learn about the inquiry process and the skills that allow them to seek resolutions to questions while constructing new knowledge. Students will develop their research skills through Literacy and technology from their interested ideas. ELA, Math Science, Social Studies, Health and Art are integrated based on their inquiry.
School Wide Expectations:
In Pinkham we show C.A.R.E :
C coming prepared to learn
A actively listening
R ready to participate and inquire
E everybody belongs
ELA -Reading and writing is an important part of the curriculum. Our goal is to create lifelong readers and writers. These are some of the things we do at school every day:
Reading Groups provides students with small learning groups that focuses on the strengths and needs of each individual student. Students spend an extended amount of time reading texts that interest them, and are provided with opportunities to talk about literature.
Writer’s Workshop builds students skills and confidence as writers. Students will receive direct writing instruction daily. Students write about their own lives or what they know, they will work in authentic ways, they will share their work with their peers, and they will develop independence as writers.
Read Aloud (Story Time)- We read great quality literature not only for pleasure, but to help develop language and a love of reading in our students.
Technology -Students access technology in school by using Epic Books. I will be giving out their log in codes so they can access the learning platform at home.
Math - Students will develop basic skills and strategies to solve problems and will learn how to communicate mathematically.
These are some of the things we do on a weekly basis: Counting Collections, Number Talks, Thinking Classrooms, Rote Counting, Math Groups and Technology.

Looking forward to learning with your child and your family.
