Guided Reading: Part 2, Benefits of Small Group Instruction

As Ontario educators and students alike battle to keep classrooms small hère is a school which boasts of just that! It’s a wonderful opportunity our students have here because from JK to 12th Grade as we purposely have a ratio of 1 teacher to every 7 – 12 students.


Parents know their children can get more attention from teachers with a small classroom. Children can be heard. They participate, building confidence as they speak up and share in smaller groups. They get extra time as they share resources. They don’t have to wait in line for the use of classroom materials.


Our school is modernized to link us to virtual friends in sister schools so we are never alone because we align ourselves to other like-minded schools in competitive games and sports.


It’s great to be a child growing up at a Signet because small is beautiful here!
