The Book Study Teaser

We will begin our book study January 19 in lieu of a data meeting. We will read together for the first 20-25 minutes and then take part in some discussion activities. If anyone would like to lead a discussion activity, please let me know. If you didn't pick up your book, stop by soon. Almost out of the Mindset book.

The "Day of" Series

Up Next...Day of Play!

Since the Day of Code was such a huge success and ideas for other types of events have been offered, LES will take part in what will turn out to be a "series" of special event days this year. Since it is the first year, we will only have 4. It all started with the Day of Code. Our next one will take place on February 3, 2016-The Day of Play. Ms. Pileggi and I will be sharing more about this event at the faculty meeting on Monday. Later this year, we will take part in the final two; "Day of Making" and "Day of Reflection." If you have ideas for more "Day of" events, please let me know. In the future, we could try to make this a monthly series.

Lesson Plans & Artifacts

Lesson Plans: In your lesson plan folders in Dropbox, please add a separate document entitled "Feedback." When I check your lesson plans, I will write the date and provide specific feedback for you. Please have this done by January 15 at the latest.

Artifacts: I will do a quick check of artifacts the week of February 1. This is not the last time to upload but will provide a check point so you do not have to do it all at the end of the year.

Fun stuff to try in your class...

Have your students self assess their exit slips...
