January Cheetah News
I hope you had a wonderful winter break and were able to spend quality time with friends and family. I had a full house during the entire break. Both of my daughters came home as well as some other family from out of state. We spent a lot of time playing games, laughing and enjoying each other's company. If getting through the holidays wasn't stressful enough, we decided to also lay new flooring. So I didn't have the restful and relaxing break I was looking forward to. Hope you were able to rest during your break.
This month marks the end of this grading period. Teachers will work on writing report cards on January 24th, and they will be sent home in Wednesday folders the first week of February.
This month in 3rd grade we have been using an AVID strategy called "One-Pagers" to assess our students at the end of some of our units. The students are able to demonstrate what they have learned over the course of the unit, most recently our fossils unit, by creating a poster with some very specific requirements. Some of these requirements could include a labeled picture, a border, multiple facts, etc. By using these One-Pagers to reflect on what they have learned through the course of the unit, they are practicing both summarizing skills and following directions. Included below is a picture of a fossil One-Pager from Mrs. Hill's class.
