Enrichment Activities

 

 

Elmont Elementary offers several enrichment activities for the students to participate in during the year.

"COUNT ON US" MATH BAGS
This program targets students in grades K-5.  Students have the opportunity to take math bags home that are filled with games and activities.   These activities are related to the SOL math objectives.  The bags are rotated amongst students in each classroom for a one-week time period.  Each classroom teacher has six bags to utilize as a classroom extension activity.  Fine Metals, a school business partner, donated the K-3 bags.  Ukrops, Target (at Virginia Center Commons) and the SCA provided for the bags for grades 3-5.  Members in the Elmont Math Committee organized the games and activities.

SOAR TO SUCCESS
This is a tutorial program for students in grades 3-5.  The Soar the Success program is designed to provide selected students with additional reading strategies to improve their comprehension of content area materials.  This program features small group instruction utilizing trade books designed to meet each student's instructional needs.

Elmont Elementary has a series of small classroom gardens known collectively as The Learning Garden. Teachers utilize elements of the GroLab and LifeLab curriculums to teach Virginia Standards of Learning objectives in a hands-on-fashion. The Learning Garden consists of individual classroom gardens, a colonial herb garden, a wildlife habitat and nature trail as well as a program of school-wide cafeteria composting.

We are always looking for schools interested in beginning school gardens or sharing ideas from their existing school gardens. Please contact Ms. Marchetti, Email for more information.
