MERIT / GROW
In grades 3 through 5, MERIT features an opportunity for students to receive assistance in the area of math. GROW (Grasping Reasoning Operations and Whole Numbers) assists students on improving number sense, algebraic thinking, data and measurement, and fractions. All work is on grade level and aligned with ELCA standards. Students have embedded review and added time for practice, and use the ALEKS adaptive software program in conjunction with the ELCA curriculum and IXL. In addition, students are given multilayered help--visual, kinesthetic, auditory, and other hands on experiences.
Low student/teacher ratios help with individualizing instruction for each student based on their needs with a 7:1 ratio in GROW.
