Happenings in the Ethridge Den!

Bobcats! It's all about relationships! April 23

A Peek into Ethridge Classrooms

My happy place is in your classrooms! Many times I see teachers creating memorable moments for students that are engaging and motivate students to work collaboratively to complete complex tasks. I hope you enjoy the pics below!

New to Lead4ward Instructional Playlist

Spent some time last week with kinder, first, and second discussing the importance of differentiating for our high achieving students. We had great conversations! Second grade shared that they utilize the learning continuum for these students just as they do for their intervention students. The continuum provides information on skills that these students are ready to be introduced to ensuring that all students are making progress and demonstrating growth. Ms. Beibas also stated that she was able to locate important vocabulary that students should be introduced to based on RIT scores!

The nine squares lead forward strategy below would be a wonderful strategy for these high performing students to analyze a text or image to identify facts, make inferences, and draw conclusions.
