Bird is the Word
This is What's STATpening
Thank you for all of your hard work and patience with giving the MAP tests. The student growth is a true reflection of all of your hard work with instruction, meeting your students' needs, goal setting, technology, and so much more!
We will take a closer look at the MAP data during grade level meetings.

Lighthouse Visit to Rodgers Forge and Flexible Small Groups continued...
The focus continues to be: FLEXIBLE SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION
We talked in depth about different errors students might make
and the learner needs:
- Flawed reasoning
- Partial or lack of understanding
The idea is that students can be grouped in many ways for small group. But is it always enough to just group based on scores or not meeting the standard, OR could it sometimes be more effective to find out the reasons/learner needs (above) why students are scoring low or not showing mastery of a standard and group them that way? Thoughts?!
Speaking of flexible small group instruction...
