From the Bookroom....

Everyone's heard of a "blog"....but have you heard of a "Glogster"?

A Glogster is basically a digital posterboard per se... It would be a wonderful way for students to use technology to showcase their learning about a topic. I think it would be awesome to make for students to use independently that would accompany their learning on any topic. You can insert photos, videos, audio, etc! I personally, would like to make some that correlate to specific standards!

AIMSweb is very similar to DIBELS and will measure various components of Literacy as well as Math in grades K-8. TThe Literacy part will look almost the same as DIBELS and the Math part will look almost the same as the Fuch's.

AIMSweb will be used for Benchmark assessments as well as Progress Monitoring assessments. Some portions will be on the computer and some will be paper-pencil. Teachers will be able to input students' data and print reports for parent meetings as well as track students' progress across various measures. Below is some info on AIMSweb Assessment "Recommendations by Grade". This shows which assessments will be given at each grade level.
