Growth Mindset...What does that mean to you?
I think it is important for us to arrive to a common understanding of a "Growth Mindset" and determine the benefits this has for the students we serve daily. Some may receive this training at home and some may not. If our calling is to teach the "whole student", we should not ignore the importance of training our students to believe they can improve and provide them the skills to do so.
Please watch the brief talk from Carol Dweck and bring your top three take aways to our PLC meeting this Wednesday.
Thank Mrs. Hare and Mrs. Kress for the fun filled Dr. Suess week!
- TELPAS online testing begins this week. Please make sure you discuss with your students the purpose for this test and expectations.
- Maximize every instructional opportunity. Be prepared daily for greatness.
- First grade teachers- Please make contact with Mrs. DeWitt regarding how to use the DRA/EDL reading inventory with your students. DRA/EDL will provide you with a more comprehensive reading level for your students and will allow you to track their progress. All First graders should be reading above a level 16 by the end of the year.
