Mrs. Brown-Paul: Special Education
**Parents of Special Education Students:
We are nearing Annual Review time. The Special Education Office should be notifying you soon of your child's upcoming CSE (Committee on Special Education) meeting date. Meetings will be held throughout the month of March.
This is the time when we talk about your child's current education program, as well as what we would like to see for the 2018-19 school year. We will be discussing 1.)the progress your child has made this year, 2.)your child's strengths and challenges, 3.)grade level standards, and 4.)accommodations and/or modifications your child needs for testing and throughout their school day.
As a parent, you are a member of CSE and a valuable part of the Special Education process. On your child's IEP (Individualized Education Plan) there are sections to record any parent concerns. If you would like information recorded in these sections (concerns as they relate to academics, programming, and social develpment), please let me know. You can contact me by email, by calling the main office, or we can meet in person prior to your child's meeting.
This year I am working primarily with 5th grade, though I check in with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades as well. I have moved rooms this year. You can now find me on the 3rd floor in room 210, next to Mrs. Nylen's room.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's academic or social skills, please don't hesitate to contact me by calling the Elementary office at 683-5857 or by email at email@example.com.

Below, you will find some suggestions for practicing skills at home and links to online resources. If you need any additional resources, don't hesitate to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I frequently check my email and will get back to you promptly.
Suggestions for practicing skills at home...
- Information about book lists and reading levels
- Check out the site readkiddoread.com for booklists and suggestions to encourage reading at home.
- Read to your child and have them read to you.
- Have your child practice reading familiar text in front of a mirror. Repeated readings help students improve fluency.
- Ask your child questions about what they are reading. Questions like, "What has happened so far, What do you think will happen next, Who are the characters, Do you like the story, What does this story make you think of?"
- Play word card Memory. Create 2 sets of word cards with your child and place face down in even rows and columns. Have your child read each card as they are flipped over. Try to match the set. These can be rhyming words, words that focus on a specific spelling pattern, or content vocabulary words.
- Play Top-It with a deck of cards (just like War...higher card wins).
- Play Addition Top-It: each player flips two cards, add them together, the higher sum wins.
- Practice math facts.
- Play addition and subtraction dice games.
- Keep a journal of personal experiences, fictional stories, or poems--and of course, include a sketch. :)
