“Success Maker”  
  Last fall, the Bais Yehudah and Bais Yaakov elementary schools incorporated a new program into their language arts and math curriculums. Through a generous grant from the Gruss Foundation, both divisions adopted an individualized computer based learning program called Success Maker. Much thanks to Mr. Joel Beritz and the Gruss Foundation for offering our Yeshiva this exciting opportunity. Grades two through five spend 80 minutes per week in the schools’ computer labs, interacting with the computer program created by Pearson, a leading curriculum development publisher. Through a variety of exercises and tutorials, Success Maker helps students advance in their reading and math skills. The software is programmed to center around each individual’s level of proficiency, so every student is able to succeed in these subjects on his or her individual level. “Both teachers and students have reported very positive results with the program,” says Mrs. Esther Gendelman, Bais Yaakov Elementary Principal, “It’s a break from the regular, traditional classroom because it is differentiated learning at its best.” “We have noticed a great improvement in our students’ math levels since we started with Success Maker,” commented Mrs. Colbert. “This is really advancing our school’s general studies program.”
