North Harford Elementary School (Pylesville, MD). This year, North Harford Elementary School was excited to expand our existing Prekindergarten program by adopting a co-taught Prekindergarten model. This model allows our youngest learners with disabilities and our general education Prekindergarten students to work side-by-side as they build a strong foundation of skills for a successful educational career. Our students’ success is ensured through a close partnership with parents and guardians and the classroom staff to maximize learning experiences for all students. These experiences build on students’ individual strengths and target specific needs as they work to become confident and capable students prepared to achieve in later grades. Prekindergarten students enjoy working with their fifth grade mentors who help them transition to the classroom each morning and work one on one to reinforce previously taught concepts such as book and print awareness and rhyming words.
