School Data Sheet

Just a reminder, please update your information on the online data sheet. Please add in you iReady scores, MAP scores, and F&P levels as you have them. Below are tips for data entry.

Some people have been having difficulty editing the data sheet. It is easiest if you do not filter by teacher. The columns should be frozen so that you can easily view each child's name. I have tried to sort every list so it is in teacher order for you already.



Coaches' Corner

When athletes want to improve their performance, they “go to the tapes” and watch hours’ worth of recordings of themselves practicing and playing. They also study their opponents by doing the same thing. When politicians want to improve their message, they watch recordings of their previous speeches. One of the most tried-and-true methods for actually seeing and evaluating what you do is to watch yourself doing it. So, one fantastic method you could employ to make yourself a better teacher is to watch yourself teach.
