    Evergreen Elementary faculty and staff continue to provide quality instruction that will contribute to developing our academically minded learners through the implementation of rigorous and relevant instruction, building relationships, and collaborative teaching in a safe and supportive learning environment.

     

    Classroom instruction is based on the expectations identified in the Florida Standards. Classroom instruction is supported by the use of curriculum maps and Standards Focus Boards in all academic areas. The curriculum maps are a guideline for teachers that identify standards for each subject and are correlated to the curriculum and textbooks available to all students. 

     

    It is the expectation that all lessons and daily instruction are aligned to the Florida Standards and follow the pacing guide set forth by our district. This provides teachers the ability to check progress towards mastery by completing required district assessments and to use this data to remediate or enrich students.

  • Reading

    For reading instruction, we use the Common Core Language Arts (CKLA) Amplify series. Through this curriculum, students learn phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing through whole group and small group instruction. Through this curriculum, each student is exposed to rigorous texts that prepare them for a multitude of content areas. Teachers also use the i-Ready toolbox to differentiate their instruction to meet the different skill levels of students in their classrooms. Three times a year, students take the i-Ready Benchmark Assessment. This provides information about the strengths and weaknesses of every student, providing us with crucial data to inform our instruction. At the end of each quarter, 3rd-5th grade students take a Quarterly Standards Mastery Assessment (QSMA). We use these data to determine the standards of focus that students have mastered, but more importantly which standards we must revisit to ensure that all students have understood and mastered skills needed to be successful on the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA). In addition, to assess students on their writing and communication skills, students in grades 3rd-5th take the WriteScore Assessment three times a year. This assessment is directly aligned to the rubric used when they take the FSA Writing test, therefore we use this data to inform our writing instruction in the areas of focus, elaboration, and evidence. 

     

    Mathematics

    We use the Go Math textbook for math instruction, as well as the i-Ready toolbox. In addition, teachers use hands-on instruction in small groups to help students master the skills and rigor of the standards. Three times a year, students take the i-Ready Benchmark Assessment. This provides information about the strengths and weaknesses of every student, providing us with crucial data to inform our instruction. At the end of each quarter, 3rd-5th grade students take a Quarterly Standards Mastery Assessment (QSMA). We use these data to determine the standards of focus that students have mastered, but more importantly which standards we must revisit to ensure that all students have understood and mastered skills needed to be successful on the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA).

     

    Science

    Our science instruction focuses on the elements of hands-on and interactive science curriculum. Students engage in science labs and hands-on activities on a regular basis to truly immerse them in the scientific process.
