The CHILD Passport is a management tool to help students become organized and focused on their work. The Passport is a practice record used to assess students’ effort at each learning station. Students also use the Passport to set and assess goals. Students have a Passport for each of the three subject areas. At the end of each four-week unit, students bring the Passports home. Parents become thus an integral part of the learning team by having a visual record of their child’s work in the classroom. The Passport helps parents and children understand the academic significance of the station activities and their progress towards teaching pre-established learning goals.
HANDS-ON ACTIVITY KITS
The Hands-On Activity Kits consist of a variety of commercially made games and activities for each subject area and level. Each activity comes with Task Cards and Activity Sheets. Activities are selected based on rigor and alignment with grade-level expectations and the Common Core State Standards.
