Our Classroom Website

Welcome! I am glad you stopped by! My name is Mrs. Cashman and I am one of the Read 180 teachers @ Maple Avenue Middle School.  I created this webpage to share information with you.  Please feel free to use anything that you like.

Read 180 grades consist of Connect & Responds, React & Writes, Narrative, Argument, Informative, and Literary Analysis Writings, Workshop Wrap-Ups, Independent Reading work & quizzes, and Individualized Software scores.  All independent work is at the students' instructional level.  While whole group and small group work is at grade level w/individualized help, modeling, and scaffolding.
