Classroom Instruction

Leaksville-Spray is proud to offer small flexible reading groups for reading instruction in Grades K-2 and follows Rockingham County’s balanced literacy model in grades 3-5.

 

Leaksville-Spray is fortunate to have on staff a trained literacy coach and a trainer for Math Foundations. In addition, this year the school also provides small group instruction in math relying heavily on best practices in the area of math.

We are a Title I school. The federal government provides additional funding for staff and instructional supplies. Our Title I staff are trained in Wilson Reading and SRA and work with small groups each day to assist those students who have demonstrated that they are in need of additional instruction in the area of reading. A remedial teacher works exclusively with students in grades 4-5 to provide additional remedial assistance in the areas of math and reading as well.

S.T.E.M.

S.T.E.M. is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The term STEM is used to express the immensely important educational goal of integrating all curriculum behind the skills that are thought to be the most vital to the success of students in the 21st Century.

 

STEM education is evolving into an integrative curriculum aimed at preparing students for the challenges of the 21st Century. A research-based STEM education program prepares our students to become creative and innovative problem solvers, researchers, engineers, and designers.  

Why is STEM important for our students?

Every job within the 21st Century is likely to require some amount of skill in science, technology, engineering and math. The integration of engineering and technology within the mathematics and science curriculum will make instruction more meaningful and engaging as well as provide students with  the skills that are critical to success in the 21st Century. This includes the ability to think critically, solve complex problems, and drive advancements in science and technology. STEM is not just about science and math; it’s about being ready for college, careers and life. We need to ensure we are using all of our current resources efficiently in developing a sustainable STEM program that will distinguish RCS students from all other students in the state and nation.
