Welcome to the Resource Website

  • Welcome to the Smith School Basic Skills website. I currently teach Language Arts and Math Basic Skills to students in Kindergarten through fifth grade.   This website contains lots of information about these and other programs offered through Basic Skills here at Smith School. Useful links have also been provided so that students can continue to practice and master specific skills. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns about the Basic Skills Program at Smith School.

    The Basic Skills program provides supplemental general education support to student in grades Kindergarten through five. Instruction is provided in small group settings to students who have been identified as needing Language Arts and/or Math support.

    Students are recommended for Basic Skills based on a variety of measures. These include, but are not limited to class performance, assessment results and report card criteria.

    Student progress is monitored throughout the year both formally and informally. Progress is also shared with the child's classroom teacher on an ongoing basis.

    Students receiving Basic Skills support will receive a schedule for instruction during the school day based on their needs and their classroom schedules.
