Team: Great job on Awards Ceremony. It is very evident you were organized and ready to go. Thank you to those who worked with students on audience manner and accepting an award etiquette. It was very evident. We have completed first round of benchmark in 3rd and 4th and we will be analyzing our data to help us plan our instruction and work smarter. Thank you for all your hard work! February is busy month and this week we celebrate 100 days of school; if you created a shirt to celebrate, wear it with professional jeans.

Fundamental Five- Refresh 101

Team: great job with your written student friendly objectives. Here is a review of the F5 to help them fresh on your mind:


F1: student friendly objectives clearly posted ( I will, we will)

F2: Power Zone: to assess student learning not just on task behaviors.

F3: Purposeful Talk; are your students talking about essential questions you are asking?

F4: Positive Reinforcement; be specific in the reinforcement as it relates to goals

F5: Critical writing is still difficult to fit in, but it does not have to be as formal as we think

It can be brief (3-5 minutes) and it can happen during conference of you prefer the confidentiality. Thank you for making no excuses to support these kiddos!

Kuddos to the bathroom elf who puts weekly messages...

I love the troubles tree analogy. I want to put a tree right outside the school as well so that before you enter, you hang your troubles. Thank you for being here for kids!
