A Peek at the Week
October 14, 2018
Catch Your Breath Day
If you have students who you are concerned about who currently have IEP's in place, please send me their names through email. In addition, if you have students who you are concerned about, and they are not receiving any intervention at all, please send me their names as well. Our intervention team is meeting soon, and we need to make sure we have all of our students covered.
For those students who you feel need to be referred to RTI, please begin gathering work samples. We will we send out an RTI date along with a sign-up time to meet about these students.

Mindfulness Minute from Mrs. D
Beginning this week, Peek at the Week will include a mindfulness or social-emotional learning tip that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine. These exercises are designed to teach students how to be aware of their emotions and how best to manage them.
Week of October 15th - Name the emotion you’re bringing to class
As your students enter your classroom in the morning, have each one name the emotion they are feeling at that moment. If a student tells you they’re feeling sad, worried, angry, etc., find time during the morning to chat with them about why they’re feeling that way.
Mindful Quote of the Week: "You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf."
Remember to include MAP data for grades 1-5 in your target growth spreadsheets. If you need help, please let us know.

The Process Manual
Please make sure you are designating a spot in your classroom to put up your standards for the week. This has to be in the front of your classroom visible for your students. The purpose is geared toward making your students aware of what they will be learning throughout the day/week. You do not have to include the standard number and it needs to be in kid-friendly language.
