Banyan's Summer Readers Plan

 
Banyan's Summer Instructional Plan for students: 
 
1.) Coach Taggartʼs Touchdown Readers Program is designed to encourage elementary-age students to continue reading and learning over the summer with a goal of reading four (4) grade-level appropriate books. Banyan students who complete the program will have the ability to claim two (2) tickets to an FAU Football game during the upcoming season. Handouts for this program are attached.  This is posted on the school's website and a parent link will be sent out weekly as a reminder.

2.) iReady Reward Program: Students are assigned 2 ELA lessons and 2 math lessons weekly according to the areas of concerns and/or the District's scope and sequence for each specific grade level.  This is a 5-week program.  Both mastery (75% or higher) and completion of the lessons are necessary to reap the incentives.  The incentives are listed in detail below.  This is posted on the school's website and a parent link will be sent out weekly as a reminder.

Current Summer incentive:
a.) the Top 5 students in each grade level to complete their ELA and Math lessons and score 75% or higher on their Math and ELA lessons will be provided a virtual shout out by administration via telephone and/or the school marquee.  
Fall incentives when we return:
b.) A gift card awarded to the TOP scoring student in the entire school on both ELA and Math iReady lessons.
c.) iReady Dance Party with ice pops on the court, field, and playground (practicing social distancing) for all students who completed and scored 75% or higher weekly on their iReady ELA and Math Lessons during the 5-week program.
