Alternate Curriculum


Dear Parents and Family, Your child’s classroom is using Unique Learning System® as the classroom curriculum. Unique Learning System provides monthly units that teachers are able to download from the Unique website. Each month there is a new topic built around a theme; such as school, plants, weather or even a story book. Some of the materials are presented in multiple levels so children of various abilities can actively participate.
 
Unique Learning System has six grade bands; Preschool, Elementary, Intermediate, Middle School, High School and Transition, so that learning is new as children progress through the years. These grade bands are designed specifically for children with special learning needs. All grade bands are set up in a three-year cycle of new units. In that way, your child will have new learning materials even if he or she is in the same classroom setting next year.

Materials have been created with SymbolStix™, which is a graphic library of symbols to help children who learn best with picture supports and for children at this age to expand their vocabulary. Unique Learning System has several tools that will help the classroom teacher monitor your child’s progress within classroom learning. The primary goal of Unique is to give each child a way to participate, learn and succeed in the classroom. Please feel free to ask your child’s teacher if you would like to see the materials and lessons.
