Today at Francis Wyman Elementary School

Third grade students complete Accelerated Reader quizzes in the computer lab. Students read books independently and complete a short quiz to check on basic comprehension. Students may also complete quizzes on books that are read aloud to them in class.

Students are closing on in the school-wide goal of reading 1,000 books by February vacation.  As of today, the tally for the school is 967 books. Every Friday Principal Astone announces the names of every student who successfully completed at least one quiz that week. The students go to the office to receive a CARES coupon from Mrs. Astone in recognition of their  "Accomplishment".

Kindergarten students are learning to read. Guided Reading lessons  occur in small groups.

Kindergarten students visit the library to listen to stories and  choose books to take home.

Fifth grade students are busy using the new "Reflex" math program aimed at developing basic fact understanding and fluency. This is a new program currently being piloted in some classrooms in the district. Students are completing lessons at school and at home.
