Growing Juntos

Week at a Glance 5-16-16 to 5-20-16 Last two days with students!!! We have made it!

ZIS Vision: One Child, Two Languages - Unlimited Possibilities

ZIS Mission: We will provide and assist each student with a well-rounded and differentiated education that is centered around the immersion of the Spanish language and cultures to prepare them for a global society.

Instructional Focus: CO (the what) /LO (the how) --> Comprehensible Input (manipulatives, visuals, hands-on, videos, linked to past learning, linked to student's background, etc.) --> Student Artifacts (PLAN WITH THE END IN MIND)

Also, CPA/Grade-Level Meetings:

1)what do you want them to learn?

2) How do you know they learned it and what does mastery look like?

3) What do you do if they got it?

4) What do you do if they don't get it?

Once you have that handed in to me, please arrange your sectioning cards to match the list you currently have and then bring them to my office by the end of the day Wednesday, por favor. All class rosters will be complete by Wednesday, with sectioning cards, etc. Also, I would like to meet with Humanities on Wednesday to look over the lists for your POV, as well. All possible changes will be presented to any affected teams before anything is finalized. I just want to make sure that all voices are heard and all sides seen. :-)

    · 2 grades per week for Reading

    · 2 grades per week for Math

    · 1 grade per week for Social Studies

    · 1 grade per week for Science.

    · 4 grades per quarter for Specials subjects

    · Grades from library projects will be infused into the grade book of the subject it is covering as needed.

    Have a GREAT WEEK! You are the best of the best, and I am blessed to be with such great professionals like YOU! This is the best school in the nation!

El Orgullo de Zarrow

This Hand I Hold

This hand I hold I touch it now
For all eternity,
And the knowledge that I share
I give from me to you.

In hope that all you do and say
Reflects the lessons learned,
And all the awards that you receive
Are ones that you have earned.

I am your present teacher
And your true friend,
But when the year is over
My thoughts of you won't end.

For in my dearest memory
Forever you will be,
And when you go I hope that you
Will take a part of me.

This hand I hold I touch it now
For all eternity,
And the knowledge that I share
I give from me to you.


ALL my best,


Zarrow International Elementary School
