Ed Sage School Students Stay Organized

Ed Sage School students stay organized every day. On the Friday before a school week begins, students in Ed Sage School get all of their schedules, assignments, test notices, due dates for assignments, and learning/ study work to be done in each subject for the coming week. This helps all students including those who have learning issues.

Students take this information and create their “To Do Lists” in their To Do List Journal. Each page has a different day. The student writes in all the information needed for that day. This includes: assignments, due dates, and what to study and learn. Then as each day is completed, the student checks off the day’s To Do List. Students with ADHD like this method because it keeps them focused.

This process helps the students become very organized and independent. Helping students become independent learners is one of the goals of Ed Sage School.

Ed Sage School is now accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year for grades 5-8.  Contact Beth Silver at 310-720-0390.

Ed Sage School Has Teacher Directed Homework Study Sessions

Ed Sage School has homework study sessions in the evenings three days a week. Students attend and work on studying and learning or completing homework assignments. The teacher works with individual students to help them understand concepts that were difficult during the day’s lessons.

These study sessions guarantee that Brain Based Learning is taking place. Students are able to get explanations that work for their individual brains. They also do not fall behind in learning concepts or getting their work done on time.

Dyslexic students really thrive from this additional support. This helps build learner self-confidence because they know they are doing the work correctly.

8th Graders Design Sports Theme Parks!

Ed Sage School’s eighth grade class is designing sports theme parks. Their designs include park events, food courts, stores, and unique ways to get around the parks. This is Brain Based Learning at its best.

Ed Sage School’s Head, Beth Silver, says this project crosses subject area lines. The individual creativity that is happening is phenomenal. The students learned how to make scale drawings. They have had to research all equipment that will be needed to run the park.

The end product for the students is to create a Power Point presentation that explains their parks. They also need to give a speech which convinces people why they should invest in their individual parks.

Ed Sage School is remote online but extremely interactive and lively. Students polish all their basic skills and learn to apply them. Their essay writing is excellent. Students receive direct individual instruction as well as class presentations.

Build Skills and Student Confidence- Ed Sage School

Ed Sage School’s academic program builds student’s skills and creates independent, confident learners. Academic skill holes are plugged in the regular classroom through individual skill instruction in subjects using Brain Based Learning.

Reading comprehension skills are taught in all subject areas. Students are shown a process to get true understanding and comprehension on the first read of any material. The goal for each student in Ed Sage School is to get the reading comprehension level to two years above grade level. The students gain confidence and are prepared to handle all types of reading they are asked to do.

It is important to increase the level of the writing skills while working on reading comprehension. Ed Sage School students learn how to compose all forms of writing. The emphasis is on writing essays with thesis statements. Students have assignments in all subject areas that require writing.

Dyslexia and Math

Students with dyslexia need to make sure all the math work they do is neat and all steps are clearly understood. It is best if these students use 1/4 inch graph paper for recording their math work.

Why does this matter? When the dyslexic brain sees written material, it is important for that material to be a clear picture. Writing math work on graph paper makes the steps clear and organized and helps the student do the logic in the math work.

Another tool for dyslexic students to use in math is an erasable pen. Frixion is one really erasable pen. It is easy for the student to see the darker print.
