Another Visit from Waukesha School District

On Tuesday, April 29th, Barrie Elementary hosted staff from the Waukesha School District so they could see how the Comprehensive Literacy Model functions seamlessly in our schools in Grades K-5.  The Waukesha staff was able to observe the instructional frameworks of Interactive Writing, Writer's Workshop Mini-Lessons, Reader's Workshop Mini-Lessons, Shared Reading, Words Study, Guided Reading, and Literature Discussion Groups in action. They were also able to see how we utilize teacher and student resources within the model to enhance our instruction as well as how we integrate technology within the model using iPads, Google Chrome Books, and Kindles.  

Special thanks to Patty Snyder, Kelly Ramirez, Therese Okray, Kaaren Adams, Sherry Pfeifer, Holly Andrews, and Julie Recob for spotlighting the great teaching and learning that happens in their classrooms every day!  Barrie Elementary Principal Brent Torrenga was proud and humbled to share the great literacy experiences that happen everyday!
