Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

I just wanted to take a moment and say THANK YOU! I know that this year has brought many new changes that have been overwhelming! However, you all are such an awesome faculty and staff and have embraced these changes. You have rolled up your sleeves and are doing what it takes to get it done. With all the changes, one thing remains the same--- the reason we are here.... OUR STUDENTS!

Thank you for everything that you do on a daily basis to ensure that our students are getting the best that they deserve! :)

Research shows you can't meet the needs of all learners in whole group. Therefore, you meet with your reading small groups daily. Why not meet with math small groups daily?? Here are a few blogs that give you some ideas of how to set up math workshops in your classroom. You will be amazed at the difference it makes in your students! In the past, I've seen the benefits of this in my classroom and it's great! Take a few minutes and check these sites out!

Great things are happening around our school! Check them out!

I love seeing all of the student work around the school! Let's paint our walls with student work! Don't forget when displaying student work in the hallway it needs to be age appropriate and standards based. The standard should be listed and there should not be any worksheets posted.
