teacher of the year

  

Ms. James and Mrs. Caggiano would like to give you an update of a project their first grade class is currently working on.


1. We started a social media campaign to end bullying. It is called, "Choose your words like you choose your clothes." People spend such a long time in the morning picking out their clothes, and in the blink of an eye can say hurtful, damaging words to others using Facebook, twitter, snapchat etc.  Check out our pledge video! (This all began from a social media website we use called Edmodo.)

 

2.We created a pledge website for people to take our pledge.

3. Today, we are raising money to begin a scholarship fund that supports students who have been bullied or stood up for bullying. We want to share a message that they are not alone, and while they may feel that way, so many people are fighting the long battle on their side. We believe that every human being that comes to this planet has the right to be themselves. Our hopes are to change the consciousness by opening the dialogue and educating our youth.

 
 
 

Welcome to James Madison Primary School

 James
Madison Primary School provides a positive learning environment, rich in literacy experiences and inquiry-based instruction, to students in kindergarten through grade two. 
 
 
Given the age of the children that we teach, our staff prides itself on their ongoing commitment to providing instruction that is developmentally appropriate and designed to meet the varied needs of our young learners. 
   Our students are immersed in children's literature as we build the foundation for life-long reading.  Quality literature serves as a springboard for our writing instruction.  Our students participate in math instruction that incorporates the development of foundational skills and strategies.  Equal to our rigorous academic instruction is our commitment to strong character development and pro-social skills instruction.  Our students learn from a young age the importance of cooperation and collaboration as they work with partners, in small groups, and engage in whole-class activities.

   Visitors to the building will immediately notice the bright atmosphere and positive feeling tone that the building exudes.  Children's work is found throughout the building in lively colorful displays.  The building reflects the energy and productivity of our young learners.

What's Happening at JMP

    Students in Mrs. Naso's 2nd grade spent much time reading and writing poetry!  They were immersed in the poetry genre in celebration of National Poetry Month.   On Thursday, April 24, 2014...KEEP A POEM IN YOUR POCKET!

     Class 1-3 has taken quite an interest in the nonfiction world around us!  March finds us enjoying researching about sharks, penguins, mammals, and dinosaurs.  We've been taking notes, drawing illustrations with labels and captions, and collaborating with classmates to write our very own nonfiction informational animal books.  We can't wait until they're all finished and we can share our hard work and research with others!
