Counselors' Corner

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.

Custodian Closet

We are still finding numerous spot in the classrooms. Please call the front office as soon as you notice a spill.

Coaches' corner

"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

Sixth Edition

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.
