My 3rd grader doesn’t read at a 3rd grade level. Will s/he have to be in a different classroom?

For homeroom, morning meeting, lunch, recess, and physical education, learners will be with their peer-age group. For academic success in our small groups, learners may be moved up and down to different level groups to ensure mastery of a particular subject.  Groups are not labeled, as some ARE higher and lower, but some may be just using a different learning style to help that group master the concepts and subject.

Here are some of the different learning styles:

  • Visual (spatial): You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.
  • Aura (auditory-musical): You prefer using sound and music.
  • Verbal (linguistic): You prefer using words, both in speech and writing.
  • Physical (kinesthetic): You prefer using your body, hands, and sense of touch.
  • Logical (mathematical): You prefer using logic, reasoning, and systems.
