Our Staff
Programs currently being implemented at Brader Elementary School are directly linked to the Brader School Improvement Plan that is focused on student
achievement. The use of a balanced literacy approach to reading instruction provides a systematic, multi-method, multilevel instructional program. The
essential components of this balanced literacy program include 90 minutes of reading instruction with a whole group guided reading lesson followed by
small, flexible groups focused on need and Writers' Workshop. Intervention and/or enrichment is provided to all students using some of the following
programs: SOAR to Success, Quick Reads, Reading Assist strategies and Explicit Phonics Instruction. The use of best practices for math education
includes using multiple methods for problem solving, using manipulatives, operations and computation. Trailblazers, a standards-based math program, is
utilized across grade levels. Smithsonian kits are used in classrooms for science instruction.

Enrichment Services - Ìnstruction in Literacy and Math is provided for students in grades 1 through 5 that extends beyond the grade level standards. This
instruction is provided by the Enrichment Teacher in a pull out program two days a week for each subject area. Students receive high quality programming
that stretches their thinking to exceed grade level standards. Students also participate in various competitions such as Meaningful Economics and the 24
Math Challenge.
Environmental Program - The Brader Environmental Committee provides for hands-on environmental science learning by maintaining habitats (wetlands,
butterfly garden, bird sanctuary, forest and meadow) on the school grounds and providing instructional materials for the environmental curriculum. These
learning environments were developed collaboratively.
