Parent/Teacher Conference Week

Thank you for going the extra mile and meeting with our parents to discuss their child's academic goals. Don't forget to place your sign in sheet in my box. I will need the number of conferences that were held per grade level to turn in to central offices.

Did you know??

There is an app for the TEKS. Get the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills on your phone today! All content areas are included and yes, the Spanish LA TEKS are also included!

There is an app for Lead4Ward. It includes a check for understanding clock teachers can use during a lesson, instructional strategies, thinking stems, resources, and more! My favorite is the Thinking Stems because it using higher order verbs that are found in the standards AND it includes the COGNATES in Spanish!!
