Alpha Plus Heroes: Silo Public Schools

Alpha Plus Celebrates Heroes in Oklahoma Schools with this memo from Katie Brister, Silo Early Childhood Principal to Facilitator Ron Brummett.
 

From Principal Brister:
Silo Early Childhood Second Grade Teachers (Mrs. Wright, Ms. Wake, Mrs. Bowen, and Mrs. McMichael) have adopted the Alpha Plus Math Curriculum with excitement! Just as with any new endeavor there have been challenges, but they have overcome those to the benefit of their students.

After establishing the instructional routine, then came the technology component since they share devices. Finally, they have implemented the remediation schedule with the help of a classroom aide, Ms. Hannah. They have also shared groups with our reading specialist’s pull-out program and have been able to ensure success for all students.

Ms. Wake said in the last grade-level meeting that, “I feel like I know where my kids actually are in math now!” Previously, we had the ability to progress monitor reading achievement with RSA funding, but not math. Teachers now feel they are better able to evaluate students’ math levels and instruct accordingly using the Alpha Plus curriculum and supplements.
