WAVE Schedule
Monday - no wave
Tuesday - Vocabulary activities with SAT words. We have broken them up into three sections so that we will cover them all in a child's stay here at ESMS.
Wednesday - ON DEMAND WRITING - topics are posed and student's have 25 minutes to compose a response. This day is devoted to getting students more experienced writing specifically to the prompt.
THURSDAY - CommonPlace Books - students bring in pictures or 2-dimensional artifacts that inspire them to write at least a page about the image. The goal is to get students away from just describing what is happening in the image, more towards what emotions the images evoke.
FRIDAY - SHARING/COUNSELOR's ACTIVITIES - throughout the year, we have approximately one Friday each month for an activity sponsored by the counselor.
