Objectives I can understand what Title I means for improving education at CGES. I can understand our current status and future goals in Reading and Math proficiency. I can identify intentional and deliberate strategies that I can use to help reach our goals.
Title I Title I is the largest federal education program. Title I is the cornerstone of the No Child Left Behind Act Title I is intended to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach proficiency on state standards and tests.
Title I at Cedar Grove Cedar Grove has a schoolwide Title I program, which provides flexibility in using Title I funds, in conjunction with other funds in the school, to upgrade the operation of the entire school.

Parent Reading Strategies Provide time and a space free from distractions to read independently. Ask your child what topics, events, or activities s/he likes. Look for books that would motivate your child to read. Let your child see you reading. Share what you have read. Keep track of the time your child spends reading every day. Be sure your child has a library card. Use technology to build your childs interest in reading.
Parent Math Strategies Expose your child to everyday math (measurements, counting objects/money, shopping) Encourage your child to construct numbers in multiple ways. For example, what are some ways that you can make 10 (5+5, 6+4, 8+2, etc.) Have your child write or describe fractions in different ways. Encourage your child to stick with it whenever a problem seems difficult. This will help your child see that everyone can learn math. Praise your child when s/he makes an effort and share in the excitement when he or she solves a problems or understands it for the first time.
