"ACCESS" The new WIDA Test that replaces IELA
"There's no place like home......there's no place like home......"
We have been testing Kindergarten students at Heyburn, and the process is taking longer than we had originally anticipated.
It looks like I will be out most of next week helping to test at Rupert. (Mon. Tues. Thurs.)
I have a morning meeting at DSC on Wednesday, so I will be here in the afternoon.
The team plans to be here at Acequia to test our LEP students Feb. 29, and March 1.
I do check my email, so message me if you need anything.
Thanks for your patience and understanding!

A Fun Little Mindset Rap.......
The Growth Mindset Song by Character Lab
My Favorite "No"--It's about Learning from Mistakes!
Research has proven that when you make mistakes your brain grows! When you get the right answer, no brain growth. Why not make the most of this! Here's a clip from a teacher who plays "My Favorite No" game with her class. She is a middle school teacher, but it could easily be adapted to elementary students!
