Young, Sheryl
Welcome to Mrs.Young's Classroom!
 We use Tools of the Mind Curriculum for literacy and language arts. This is a center-based curriculum where the students rotate to different literacy centers and participate in shared activities, which helps develop oral language. Other Tools of the Mind Activities promote reading strategies, strategies for problem solving and abstract thinking and opportunities to explore and reflect on concepts in science. This is all done in a fun and meaningful way in a Tools of the Mind kindergarten classroom.
For math, we use "Go Math" curriculum, where the students are taught math concepts using technology, hands-on games, activities and workbooks.  Materials are sent home to reinforce what is learned in class.  Students have access to a website that corresponds with our curriculum and can be used at home.                        

I welcome communication with the parents of my students. You can e-mail me at : or you can leave a voicemail at (732) 699-1573 X 5934 and I will return your call as soon as I am able. For urgent matters, call the main office at extension 5950.
