Think Tanks

We're running full throttle now with our Think Tanks and small group instruction during Tier Time. I LOVE the great ideas that are coming from your collective brainstorming and the activities that our kids are doing during that time. I know this is new and I know it takes time. Hang in there - it will be worth it! Please do not don't allow yourself to feel overwhelmed. I can help. I can cut, I can copy, I can pay for supplies, and I know people. People that would love to help you too, so please let us help.

HOT OFF THE PRESSES: Think Through Math is up and running!

Pod Championship Points

Continue to promote and encourage students to earn points. It means a great deal to the students, so we want to make sure we record all of the points each day/week. If you fall off the wagon just one week, it can be hard for your pod to recover. Remember - you can award 5 points/day per class for participation, good citizenship, or just overall awesomeness.
