One Team, One Dream…September 28 - October 2 Weekly Update

Curriculum Connections

  • How has the Mindset book study transferred into your teaching and student learning up to this point?
  • How have you used the mindset scenarios with your students that were provided by Mrs. Veritzan and Ms. Bernard? What changes have you seen in yourself and your students?
  • While we do not know if we are going to take ACT Aspire this school year, we will go ahead and start preparing our students as if we are taking ACT Aspire in regards to the timing aspect of the assessment. Please begin to incorporate 1 to 2 timed activities into your instruction each week. We need to start in kindergarten doing timed activities to help our students feel more comfortable in timed situations. Special Areas, Instructional Specialist, and Classroom teachers need to reflect the activities in lesson plans beginning October 5.
  • How are we integrating across the areas including Special Areas, Instructional Specialist, and Classroom Teachers?

Think about it….
