Working in partnership with the community, Eastside Elementary will provide all students:

  • A collaborative team of professionals who are committed to improve their practices, so that all students learn at high levels

  • A safe, positive, and inviting learning environment

  • An engaging and challenging curriculum focused on essential academics and life skills

  • Individualized and timely support that provides students with what they need to succeed

One Team, One Dream Inspirations

Hattie's Corner: Resources

In the chart below, identifying similarities and differences gleans an effect size of 1.32 (over 3 years of growth in one year!!!) Here is a resource to try out that will spice up the traditional Venn diagram idea https://teachingmadepractical.com/compare-contrast-activities/.

This link in Global PD is an 8 minute video on student engagement and self efficacy. Feel free to check it out! If you have forgotten your global pd login and password, let me know. https://globalpd.com/search/content/MTI5

I would love to hear from you about Hattie strategies that you are trying out in your classroom. Feel free to email Mrs. Krogman and myself, pictures and explanations of things you are trying! One Team, One DREAM!

Learning Happening at Eastside

Details for the Week


  • Be on time for your duty. Student supervision is key in the morning and afternoon!

  • SMART goals - Do the students know the goal for your essential standard? Make sure to post your goal with your essential standard in your room, so students know the focus. I think most of you for Unit 1 had an 80% goal.

  • SIT doc updating - for any students in grades 4 and 5 - needs to be completed by end of day on Friday. All staff working with these students on reading interventions will input a comment.

  • MAP Progress Monitoring will be with grades 4 and 5 They will take their test in the computer lab with Mrs. Cardin during their keyboarding time.

  • Please fill out the fall festival doc. We need all of your help! We still need 14 people to sign up to bring a sweet for the sweet walk. We need 9 people to work a time slot at the games. PTO provides a lot for our school and this is where we can show our gratitude. All school supplies that were purchased for students came from this fundraiser last year. Also, PTO supplied us with more chromebooks last year, playground equipment, and differentiated seating. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SlBXzDkz9SlP3kzsv0CaLR881cOKvwj2mTVawVzCwZQ/edit#gid=0
