Happy 10th Week of School!

Please read the district & campus news below. As always, let me know if you have any questions or would like to meet.



ELAR Cluster Planners: The upcoming ELAR clusters are being revised and will be put on Eduphoria soon.

3rd Grade

  • Cluster 4: Consider Text Structure is now available. Please view the video.
  • This cluster should begin on November 2nd.
  • There are 4 mentor lessons for this cluster.

Reading Process Fluency Pre-Assessments: Each team has already met or will be meeting soon to discuss the Reading pre-assessment process. Analyzing the results from the process fluency pre-assessments in reading would be a great activity to do during Collaborative Learning. We can use the data to plan for upcoming WIN Time, mini-lessons, and small group instruction.


Region 10 has just compiled new STAAR Resources: STAAR Analysis Tools Google folder

  • Reading and Writing Test Analysis: This resource takes each STAAR test question and provides the correct answer with an explanation of why it's the correct answer. It also takes the incorrect answers and explains why students may have chosen each one.
  • Test Analysis Study Guide: This new resource is a professional learning structure to help you analyze test questions. It provides specific guiding questions and examples to structure collaborative conversations for teachers.
  • Reading and Writing Question Stems: This resource is the STAAR STEM Resource which now includes how the TEKS were assessed for 2013, 2014, and 2015.
