Over the next two weeks we will be sending home the Cluster 1 CBA Reflection Sheets. We will be meeting with students one on one to discuss how they did on their CBA. We will talk about what they did well on, what they still need to work on, and we will set some goals together. These sheets will provide you with some great information on how your student is doing in math.
As teachers we will continue to plan for reteach and review with students as needed based on the data that we get from our CBA's.
