February Break academic practice for students

Please begin brainstorming as teams some practice activities you can send home for students to work on over the break. This will not be mandatory, but an additional aid for students.

Teacher Spotlight...

This week we would like to spotlight Ms. Olusegun for her wonderful math lesson. Ms. Olusegun began her Solve & Share using the 3 read protocol. Manipulatives were out for students to use and students had a clear understanding on how to use manipulatives to solve the problem.

An example of the 3 read protocol can be found here.
