Ashburn Elementary is implementing a school-wide read aloud program to promote word consciousness and higher level thinking skills. Designated pages from Donavan’s Word Jar (by Monalisa Degross) are read aloud daily by each teacher. Students are collecting words throughout the month. As a culminating activity, students will “wear” and share words.
Author Monalisa Degross and her son, Donavan, visited our school on January 22nd!
Ashburn is a climate for success with Positive Behavior Interventions and Support. PBIS is an approach for teaching children appropriate behavior and providing the supports necessary to sustain that behavior. The goal of PBIS, is to reduce challenging student behavior through a proactive, positive, and consistent manner across all school settings and improving academic achievement and social competence. The key component of PBIS is to teach children to respect themselves, others and property by setting the same expectations and using the same terminology across all school settings.
