*Play-doh may contain wheat, which could cause an allergic reaction if ingested in those sensitive to wheat gluten or with Celiac disease.
Students will be assessed using the initial placement assessment, mini assessments throughout the unit, and an end of unit one (part 3). Students will also participate in activities during the three classes per week that allow for data tracking by the teacher.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents will be given a letter at the beginning of the unit that outlines what we'll be working on and how they can help their child practice at home. These additional practice times with parents are not required; but, highly encouraged as the student will greatly benefit from it
