Welcome! Our classroom uses auditory-verbal techniques to encourage listening and language development in children with hearing loss.
During our morning circle time you are likely to catch us singing, dancing, and practicing yoga movements and breathing exercises. During our ELD block, we practice visual literacy and the accompanying language required to share our ideas and thoughts. For our literacy block, Room 6 utilizes a balanced literacy approach. You are likely to see shared reading, dialogic reading, independent writing, phonological awareness games and other elements put to intentional use to foster a love of reading and writing. For math, we use Eureka Math. We are likely to be counting the math way, completing sprints, using manipulatives, and journaling our thought processes. For science, social studies, health, and art, we mainstream with our general education peers so we can learn from them and they, in turn, can learn from us.
We love being a part of the Melrose M/S/T Magnet. If we're not in our classroom, we may be acting as garden rangers in our school garden with Ms. Mirabal's preschool class. We could be in dance class with Ms. Smith and Mr. Willis's kindergarten class or in music with Ms. Hann's class. Or, we may be in the science lab completing investigations and practicing our coding skills (Ms. Greiving is learning a lot!). If not there, perhaps you'll find us in the kinder yard doing ceramics with Mama Gabby.
Outside of the classroom, Ms. Greiving and her fellow D/HH teachers enjoy hosting parent nights. For these parent nights we invite guest speakers, have panel discussions, and provide an environment for parents of children with hearing loss to meet and collaborate.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact Ms. Greiving at email@example.com.
