At Longfellow Elementary School, teachers provide
opportunities for student achievement through various methods. We recognize that student learning is unique
to each individual. Teachers provide
opportunities for students to meet their unique needs. Students are provided opportunities to work
with partners, in small groups, and with adults individually to meet their
needs and grow academically. Instruction
is guided through student assessments and daily progress so that students are
mastering the necessary content to be successful.
We are fortunate at Longfellow to have various technology
tools to support student achievement.
Document cameras and smart board technology is available for students to
work interactively with the teacher in whole group and small group
instruction. This increases student
engagement throughout the instruction and provides spontaneous opportunities
for students to show what they know.
A computer lab is available in the library for students
to have access to research and practice skills with specific games and
applications. Students have
opportunities every third day throughout the week to work in the computer
lab. Ipads and Chrome books are
available for students to practice specific skills, research, take assessments,
and publish student work in the classroom. Students are able to work
independently and at their own pace with meaningful programs to enhance their
skills. The Longfellow PTO has been
instrumental to provide these tools to support students in the classroom.
