Nurture. Collaborate. Own
We will be doing awards for the 9 weeks in classrooms this year. We are hoping this allows for you to be more flexible in the time you want to give them out. You are welcome to invite parents if you would like, but it is not required. More information to come on what awards are to be given.
Inspiration for Your Week
Kudos Korner from the Admin Team
Great job, Kyla for all your work scheduling translators!

From Opportunity Room to the Classroom
Tameika Hairston is making leaps and bounds in her students lives.
Parents were bought to tears as they express their gratitude for all that she is doing for their children. Way to go!
Media Center News
Book fair was a great success! The media center will be returning to normal operations on Monday. Regular kindergarten checkout and story time will begin too.
Teachers, If you have sensitive details about one of your students, please do not include the child's name in the email. You can add the student initials but never include the name.
We are still finding numerous spot in the classrooms. Please call the front office as soon as you notice a spill.
"Word study involves"doing" things with words-examining,manipulating,comparing, and categorizing-and offers students the opportunity to make their own discoveries about how words work."
Words Their Way
Journaling Journey (Continued...)
Provide students with feedback in their journals.
Ways to provide feedback:
- Provide feedback on the mastery of a standard, skill, or strategy
Ex. I love the way you have used area model to find the quotient!
Ex. Mickey Mouse, you have really come a long with your strategy of partial quotient. Excellent job!
- Provide feedback on the expected performance or behavior
Ex. I really like the way you've used your graphic organizer to provide at least 3 supporting details for your main idea.
- Use concrete symbols
Ex. Stickers, Stamps, Check Marks, Smiley Faces, etc.
Thank you for all of your hard work during Parent Teacher conferences and working with translators!
Please continue to collect signatures for your Title I documents and return all signature pages to me in your yellow folders! Thanks so much!
