Many of you may have noticed a pop-up when you signed in or an email or two that may have suggested big things are coming. It has been a truly exciting summer here at n2y
. Although we cannot share all of the “big things” on the way, we can give you a sneak peak of just a few new additions to Unique Learning System.
The Preschool band is growing by leaps and bounds. Instructional targets have been expanded to include toddlers (3-4 year olds) and preschoolers (4-5 year olds). The Preschool Band will start the new school year with three new lessons and the majority of the lessons will now have accompanying Circle Time activities! Preschool has also grown in the areas of pre-writing, gross motor and sensory activities. The band will also have Core Materials and new Checkpoint assessments in the Unique GPS.
NEW! Pre-writing Activities in Preschool
The other grade level bands are going through some exciting changes as well and we can’t let the cat out of the bag just yet! But we can let you in on a few. In an effort to make a tighter alignment to the Common Core and state educational standards, some of the books, articles, chapter books and activities are going through revisions and/or rewrites. When the school year begins, check to ensure that you have the most up-to-date lessons and materials. Visit the Unique GPS as well for additional assessments that may appear. The n2y
Library is also growing. There will be many additional books each month that will support and expand monthly themes and skills in various levels.
Additional big things are coming throughout the school year. So rest and have a relaxing summer and get ready for some excitement and fun coming your way for the 2013-2014 school year!
