Assessments, Grades, & Report Card Documentation
You can use the unit post-assessments for grades. You can use the checkpoints in Bridges as a grade in the intermediate grades and as report card documentation in the primary grades and for skills based report cards. During PLCs, we can build common assessments using the district blueprint and learning check items. The blueprint and learning check items are aligned to the new TEKS and to the rigor of STAAR.
Problems & Investigations and Work Places
This is where you want to spend the bulk of your math block. Problems & Investigations are your whole group & small group investigations. Work Places allow you to have students working in small groups so you can either do formative assessments as you observe student learning or you can pull small groups to work with students that need intervention or challenge.
Home Connection & LISD Student Site
To get to the LISD student site, go to the LISD homepage. On the left side under ‘Quicklinks’ click ‘Student Site’. Click on ‘Elementary Student Site’ and then choose the appropriate grade level, and appropriate subject. If you choose Math, then you will find resources and games aligned to the different strands. A lot of these resources come from the Bridges website.
Number Corner Tips
Please make sure your Learning Walk Feedback Form and QR code are completed and posted outside your room by the week of Sept. 15-19. Directions on how to do this are on my website under "technology".
Team Math Trainings and Planning
Please see your calendar for when your team is going to be having their fall Team Math Training and Planning. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with another campus and plan for the upcoming 9 weeks.
