Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

Private schools in Savannah

St. Andrew’s School – a private school on Wilmington Is. in Savannah – recently received recognition as one of the most challenging high schools in the nation. This marks the fifth year in a row for the Savannah private school to receive the honor.

The Washington Post’s Jay Mathews has been ranking the most challenging schools in the country for 18 years.

“I’m thrilled that St. Andrew’s is again being recognized for one of our distinguishing characteristics–that we provide a challenging curriculum to all of our students while giving them the individual attention and supportive environment they need to help them meet that challenge,” said Mark Toth, Head of School.

St. Andrew’s ranks No.2 for the entire state of Georgia and No. 92 for the nation as one of the most challenging high schools.

Savannah Arts Academy was also included on the list & ranked No. 6 statewide and at No. 195 nationwide.

Savannah Dyslexia Tutoring hosts Orton-Gillingham Training

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Dyslexia Savannah Orton-Academy TrainingOur brains are wired for spoken language, but they are not naturally wired for reading.

Some people are still able to pick up reading and writing with ease, while 20% of learners really struggle with this process.

Dyslexia literally means difficulty with language and it can cause major education delays and destroy a bright student’s confidence in themselves and their ability to learn.

Are you interested in learning how to help struggling readers overcome these obstacles and reach their potential?

Savannah Dyslexia Tutoring is excited to announce that they are hosting Orton-Gillingham Training in Savannah Summer/Fall 2016 instructed by Sheila Costello M.S., Accredited Training Fellow, Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.

Orton-Gillingham is considered the “Gold Standard” in teaching reading and spelling to dyslexic students. Orton-Gillingham is a multi-sensory, structured, prescriptive and diagnostic approach to teaching reading. It has been successfully used with thousands of dyslexic students for more than 70 years.

This 60-hour course offers participants the opportunity to learn an effective approach for teaching children with language-based learning difficulties. The training prepares teachers to instruct diagnostically and prescriptively, either individually or in a classroom setting. The course will follow guidelines set by the Orton-Gillingham Academy of Practitioners and Educators for Associate Level certification. These guidelines also require a practicum, and for those who intend to seek certification a practicum is available following the course.

Dates:
June 6th- June 9th, 2016 (8AM- 4PM)
September 9th 2016 (5PM- 8PM) & September 10th 2016 (8AM- 3PM)
November 4th 2016 (5PM- 8PM) & November 5th 2016 (8AM- 3PM)

For more information and a registration packet please email welshcasey@gmail.com

About Musical Explorers

Originally designed by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI) as a music education program that provides historical, cultural and geographical knowledge about the various communities of New York’s five boroughs, SMF’s Musical Explorers was adapted in partnership with WMI to apply similar lessons and learning practices to the Georgia coast and South Carolina Lowcountry.

In advance of each semester, trainings for local teachers are provided to give an overview of the curriculum, introducing vocal warm-up exercises, musical vocabulary and a variety of other basic musical concepts.

A 100-page teacher guide with accompanying student guides (including Georgia and South Carolina Standards/Common Core Capacities), videos and audio samples is distributed to each participating classroom annually, along with a complete web-based version for homeschoolers, parents and teachers using computers and interactive whiteboards.

Robotics

Build Robots. Build Friendships. Build Confidence.

Sylvan Learning of Savannah Robotics for Kids uses fun, hands-on projects to get your child’s creative juices flowing. Your child will learn how to build and program robots with LEGO® bricks and software — all while making friends, developing new skills and having a great time with STEM. For many kids, robotics class is a highlight of their week.

To fully engage and challenge your aspiring engineer, computer programmer or scientist,  Sylvan Learning of Savannah has several kids’ robotics programs available:

Grades 2-4: Robotics 101 and 102

First timer? Your child is welcome at Sylvan Learning of Savannah. He or she can jump into Robotics 101 or Robotics 201 without any prior experience. Sylvan teachers are happy to adjust to your child’s ability.

How Sylvan teaches kids robotics each week

In each Robotics for Kids class at Sylvan of Savannah, your child and a buddy work together to plan and build a new robot using LEGO® bricks, letting their creativity and imaginations loose. Along the way, they learn science and engineering concepts, such as how pulleys, levers and motors work.

As the kids’ robots take shape, they experiment with LEGO® Education’s award-winning WeDo™ software. They discover how to apply computer programming concepts and find new ways to get their “bot” moving.

Then, kids challenge other teams to friendly games or take part in imaginative play.

At the end of each robotics class, your child enjoys a wrap-up activity to reinforce the STEM skills he or she learned in class.
