Problem Solving

An IC friend of mine shared this video she took when she was on a learning walk at another FISD school and I just had to share it! I thought you would be interested in seeing the level of thinking, organization, and understanding that this little Kindergartner in the video displays!

From C&I:

We are excited about the professional learning scheduled for the spring! Teachers are bringing an example/artifact of how they have used the ELAR cluster pre-assessments to create CFAs. They will be sharing ideas and reflecting on our learning with these guiding questions:

Please be prepared to answer the following question about your artifact:

  • How has this artifact allowed for targeted differentiation for students?
  • What is the evidence of student learning from your artifact?
  • How is student growth measured and celebrated with this artifact?

In case you missed it...
