Student and Parent Input Survey

Emily Pfeifer is sending an Input Survey to her students AND parents so that they may reflect on her teaching and offer her feedback. This is such a great way to keep doing what works and modify what doesn't. Here are examples of her surveys:

Dreambox will be available for students over the summer!

Where are you with the Social Studies curriculum?

1st Grade: did you teach the new Social Studies curriculum? If not this year, next year!

2nd Grade: did you teach the now required new Social Studies curriculum? You did!

3rd grade: did you know you are getting a new Social Studies curriculum for next year? I am here for support and would also love to co-plan a lesson.

Yes. I know. I need to stop thinking into next year and enjoy summer first.

End of Year Emails...

Everybody: 2016-2017 Class Lists

The class lists are placed on the Shared Drive in the 2016-2017 Articulation folder for you to organize lanyards/OneCards for next year’s teachers. The official lists will come out on Thursday. Please try not to leave the spreadsheet open too long so that others may access them.

Homeroom Teachers: Fly-Up Day Letters

If you still have your Fly-Up Day letters, one suggestion was to have them on desks for when students come for Sneak a Peak or sometime during the week back to school. If you have another idea, or you don’t have them anymore, that’s okay too!

Math Teachers: Dreambox

Students will have access to Dreambox over the summer! Please spread the word.

ELA Teachers: Vocab and Spelling City

Is getting renewed for next year.

Everybody: Materials

Please continue to check to make sure you and your teammates will have all of the materials you will need for next year. I sorted through some 1st and 2nd grade guides in the hallway. We have a few incomplete sets, but also some complete sets of teacher guides.

1st, 2nd, 3rd Grade

Social Studies Curriculum

1st (it was assumed you were teaching it this year), 2nd, AND 3rd grade will be teaching the new Social Studies curriculum from BCPSOne next year. Professional Development is being offered to 2nd grade on August 18th about this, but not for 3rd. I can work directly with 3rd to go through the new curriculum when we come back.

Apology for the Constant Emails

I truly despise sending out email upon email for the end of the year. Its the battle between sending out premature emails or waiting until the very last minute to send out one succinct email.

If there is a better way, please let me know!! There are so many pieces to wrapping up the school year. Thank you for understanding and being patient though!
