Glows and Grows
Grows: How do you avoid "over scaffolding" with your writing instruction? Do the writing pieces reflect independent thinking or are students copying teacher sentences? How do you chunk the writing process into pieces?

Classroom Room Rep
As the room representative you will be assisting me in areas such as communicating with the parents/guardians of my students, finding volunteers for classroom activities, field trips and celebrations, or by ensuring that fliers are sent home in a timely manner. There may also be times where the PTA may request help finding volunteers, as needed, for PTA events by reaching out to parent's of my class. If you are interested, I can share your contact information with the room representative coordinators, Lorena and Deepi, to send you more details.
MTSS Tier One Plan
Our Tier One Plan for behavior for Sept./Oct. is here!
Check them out! September is focused on building relationships and making bonds with students. Please feel free to share the successes you've had in this area.
October is focused on recognizing students with Paw Prides and Good News Referrals. Both are available in the staff workroom. Remember, students put Paw Prides in the Paw Pride box on the stage. Good News Referrals come back to me in the office. Students can visit and hand them in and I will recognize them personally.
MTSS Request for Assistance/SSTs
"We typically want to have teachers request assistance so that our Tier 2 MTSS team can review a case, offer suggestions, etc. before we escalate to an SST. We have few resources and a small team and so we want to make sure students really should be going to an SST before referred. It doesn't always work out but that is what we are attempting to do.
Either way, the request for assistance form is here: Request for Assistance. This form comes to me directly.
If you don't want to do that and truly want to move forward with an SST, you will fill this form out with plenty of documentation about current interventions. The SST form has changed and is shorter now. It is here: CH SST Form. This form goes to Sandi Fallon.
NWEA MAP Goal Setting
Please note that the MAP reports page has changed a bit. I think they do a better of job of previewing the reports available to you.
