We will celebrate the successes teachers have had with implementing the ELAR cluster pre-assessments and the utilization of that data in developing common formative assessments. Teachers will need to bring (1) an example of how they have used the ELAR cluster pre-assessments to create CFAs and (2) a technology device.
*Please see the attachments to this email for samples from other campuses. These are great examples of what to do with Pre-Assessment data and how to turn them into CFAs! I have also attached how one team uses the prompts for guided reading.
Keep up the amazing work that you are doing with Exemplars! :)
Have you added a new Kagan structure to your problem solving or mini-lesson lately? Here are several to try with your class!

Soil, sand, and gravel has been delivered to all campuses this week.
Please remind teachers to look through their science lab equipment and talk with other grade level science leads before ordering supplies from the store. Please read through lessons before ordering so that you know how much of given supplies your team might need.
