Tiger Tid-Bits

  • Mr. Gee and Mr. Eytchison's Passion Projects are centered around the turmoil in Syria. Students selected this project after watching CNN News. They have decided to host an Art Show coming soon. What a wonderful way to teach compassion and empathy to students.
  • Big thanks to our SME Social Committee for our fun October events scheduled.
  • PAW Prints is back in action- Traci Molloy, Jen Burrows and Katie Yarbrough will be advising this group. We can't wait to see what the first production will look like.
  • Thank you for the flexibility in your daily schedules during our CELDT testing. We are the last school, let's help our CELDT Testers end on a positive note.
  • Becca, Hollie and Sandra are our Illuminate ROCKSTARS! Thank you for making our training an effective and productive afternoon.
  • Look at our TKers! They are already learning how to read and showing great progress. They are even using the computer keyboards and mice now! WAY TO GO!


  • Reminder to ask your students to take off sweaters during this heat. I see so many outside wearing thick sweatshirts.
  • Students need a pass to come up to your rooms before, lunch or recess time, don't forget to give those out to students.
  • Need ideas on how to teach that math strategy? Check out https://learnzillion.com/ a free resource.
  • Need help with classroom management? Check out Class Dojo. It now has a Dojo Class Story you can publish to when fun things happen in your class. It is a great way to communicate with families on their child's behavior, as well as share the positive. It now has a translation option. See Rebekah or Becca for more ideas.
  • Need a new way to reward students without food? We now have a Wii available for your use. Check it out with Jamie, room 116/

Habit 2 — Begin with the End in Mind

Have a Plan

I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision. I look for ways to be a good citizen

Hour of Code 2015 - WORLDWIDE

Ever wished you could see into the minds of your students? The Smithsonian Science Education Center (SSEC) and FableVision invite you to do so (in animated format) through the new, free web series, Good Thinking! The Science of Teaching Science. We're delighted to share this creative teacher resource, that's sure to "move the meter" in and out of your classroom.

Good Thinking! stars Ms. Reyes, the intrepid science teacher, and a cast of colorful characters that spring to life from classroom objects to help her explore the "conceptual ecologies" in her students' brains. One such character, Gummerson, sums it up well: "Children need to find ways to make sense of the world around them - we all do! And those ways of thinking are called mental models."
