Mrs. Adams' Resource Website
Instructor: Jody Adams   
Welcome to my school fusion website.  I currently teach Reading, Writing and Math Basic Skills as well as a Kindergarten Intervention program at Smith School. This website contains lots of information about these and other programs offered through Basic Skills here at Smith School.  Useful links have also been provided so that students can continue to practice and master specific skills. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns about the Basic Skills Program at Smith School. 

The Basic Skills program provides supplemental general education support to student in grades Kindergarten through five.  Instruction is provided in small group settings to students who have been identified as needing English,Language Arts and/or Math support.

Students are recommended for Basic Skills based on a variety of measures.  These include, but are not limited to class performance, assessment results and report card criteria.

Student progress is monitored throughout the year both formally and informally.  Progress is also shared with the child's classroom teacher on an ongoing basis. 

Students receiving Basic Skills support will receive a schedule for  instruction during the school day based on their needs and their classroom schedules. 

As always, I am available via email at:
Jadams@tenafly.k12.nj.us

Happy Reading!

Mrs. Jody Adams
 
Announcements
Earth Day Bake Sale

Friday, April 22nd is Earth Day, so we are celebrating by having a bake sale! I underestimated the interest level of the Smith School students, so the members of the Hydroponics Club and I asked if we could have a bake sale to raise the necessary funds to keep the systems running. This idea has grown and is now in full bloom! (No pun intended!) Check out the new link I added to the pre order forms distributed in school the week before spring break. If you are interested in ordering, please get your orders in as soon as possible. A table with extra items, as well as some additional donated items, will be available for sale at dismissal that day. Some of our Smith School staff members will be baking and donating their personal or even class favorites, and the members of the hydroponics club will also be providing a few extra special offerings. All ingredients will be listed, but if your child has any food allergies, please contact me at jadams@tenafly.k12.nj.us to confirm which items would be good for your child. Kosher chocolate pops, and certain gluten free and nut free options are available, but please confirm ingredients with me before ordering or purchasing any baked goods. If you and/or your child would like to bake, donate and have your items sold the day of the sale, either you or your child simply bring in the items the morning of April 22nd along with a list of ingredients (necessary for allergy reasons).

Thanks so much for your continued support!
