The purpose of this grant is to purchase Veratiles sets for each grade level to support independent and differentiated learning activities for students.

Benefits of Program

 Versatiles are a hands-on skills practice with a self-checking answer system. In the multiage classroom there are numerous opportunities for students to practice skills independently while other students receive direct instruction from their teacher. During these independent activities, it is important for students to be able to self check their work for errors. Versatiles provide students with instructional visuals, across various strands of standards with an explicit method of checking their work independently or with a partner.

Success of Program

Versatiles provide engaging, screen-free alternatives to traditional skills practice. The Self-checking answer system creates a safe learning environment that increases student confidence. Both the literacy and math versatiles sets include Flexible, reliable, low-prep classroom solutions for each educator to provide differentiated support to students.  The skills and knowledge featured in each grade level set are aligned to state and national standards.

  • Literacy Foundations: Phonics & Fluency

This grant aims to supply a Veratiles set for literacy and math for each grade level. Each grade level kit supplies 24 student activity books (4 copies of each title, 32-pages each), 8 answer cases, and 1 teacher guide. The purchase would supply the K/1 classroom with the grade K math and Literacy versatiles, and grade 1 math and Literacy versatiles sets. The 2/ 3 classroom would receive math and Literacy versatiles for both second and third grade. The Yuba classroom in fourth and fifth grade would receive math and Literacy versatiles for each grade level. The Resource specialist would receive a differentiation versatiles box that features grades 1-6, for both literacy and math. The Reading Intervention teacher would get a differentiation box for grade 1-6 for literacy.
