What's going on with Teaching and Learning at MWE?

DRA, OS, and Math Assessments

Just a friendly reminder that your DRA and OS Assessment should be entered into Eduphoria by October 6th. Please also either give me your DRAs when you are finished so that I can make a copy of your students' FFI pages, or make a copy of each FFI page and bring to your next 3-week meeting. We will talk about how to use the FFI to plan small groups and inform instruction. I will also be giving you little cards for each of your students to put their BOY DRA level. These need to be finished in the charts in the office by 10/13. I will put the cards and an example in your box by the end of this week. For Kindergarten and First Grade only, your Kathy Richardson data is not due on Eduphoria until October 30th (only the first assessment).

3-Week Meetings

At your next 3-week meeting, we will discuss DRA/OS data and Math Assessment Data. Please bring your FFI sheets from your DRAs and your data sheets from your unit math assessments. Dates are 10/8 for 3rd-5th teachers and 10/15 for K-2nd teachers.

Teaching and Learning Curriculum Web Site

Check out the following link to see a web site for parents to see grade level curriculum and resources they can use. It is a work in progress, so if you have any ideas for what needs to be changed or information/resources we can add to the site, please don't hesitate to send them my way. I plan on giving parents a flyer with a QR code and link to the web site when they come for P/T conferences. It will also be linked to the regular MWE web site.

Grade Level Newsletters

If your grade level does a newsletter, I would love to get a copy of it.
