On February 11, one of Yalow’s 3rd-grade teachers arranged for a donation of winter coats from the non-profit Operation Warm for 189 students. Operation Warm believes that providing children with a brand-new coat offers them physical and emotional warmth, confidence to socialize and succeed, and hope for a brighter future.
Yalow teachers hone their math teaching skills with Japanese Lesson Study—research lessons in which teachers collaborate with and critique one another to improve their teaching of Singapore math. At Rosalyn Yalow students are taught Singapore math, which balances computational fluency with conceptual understanding—numeracy—so children can master numeric concepts.
