Rise and Shine
Heather went tonight and put up one of her creations to capture the golden feathers. It is a better visual to see how many feathers are being collected per house. Please remind students to put both their first and last names on their feathers. They will crumple their feathers and drop them into a tube as they make a wish. I will explain this tomorrow during morning announcements. Thank you Heather for your amazing ideas! You are such a runner. :-)
Thank you for all that you are doing to prepare our students for state testing and the next grade level. As our students take the field test, your hard work and determination to help our students is showing. Please make sure you talk with your classes about any issues you see during field testing after they finish with the field test. This is a great opportunity to make sure you answer any questions they have after seeing the TDA and clearing up anything that you may need to address before the real test.
I want you all to know that the implementation of the writing plan is working! As I have visited classes I am so impressed by the writing I am seeing. Take a look at this writing from two students in Mrs. Kyle's class. How impressive! I have no doubt that the consistency among grade levels will help our students as they hear the same language year after year. Our writers in grades 3, 4, and 5 are showing out on the field test as well. I am thrilled that we are producing great writers here at CGE!
