One Class at a Time: Hawthorne School

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - Hawthorne School kindergarten teacher Mary Beth Jourdonnais has been searching for ways to enhance her literacy centers.

Recently she learned that Republic Services and KPAX-TV is going to help her with that goal. Jourdonnais is this week’s winner of a $250 One Class at a Time grant. 

She will be upgrading her classroom with Daily Five -- a literacy instruction program which includes reading, listening to stories, writing and word work. 

She says enhancing the fundamentals helps her differentiate various reading levels and abilities of her students. 

KPAX General Manager presented Jourdonnais her award.

“I hope to purchase more materials such as letter stamps, stamp pads, magnetic letter tiles, and some book bins," Jourdonnais said.
