A Peek at the Week

Reading All-Stars Reading Log
More information about the power of PLC's:
*Assessments are not common formative assessments until the team looks at them together.
*Differentiating instruction based on scores on CFA's is paramount to ensuring student learning.
*Analyzing scores on CFA's to determine which teacher(s) had the highest percentage of mastery yields good information. What teaching strategies were used? What did you do different that may have made the difference? Team meetings allow time for discussion about teaching strategies, analyzing errors to determine what needs to be retaught, and discussion on enrichment for students who mastered the standard.
Happy Valentine's Week!
I am so very grateful for all that you do for our school, each other, and your students. You keep loving BIG even when you are exhausted. Have a Happy Valentine's week!
Word of the Week: Ponder
Do you need a classroom volunteer?
Use this time to communicate to your parents what is needed for your class to move forward in preparation for state testing and/or the following grade. We have to maximize the time we have our parents in front of us, so be thinking of how you will let them know how they can help. Display student work and target parents who you may need to have conversations with in order to help their child. Be relentless in pulling everyone in to help move your kids forward.
