WINTER WONDERLAND December 9th
It isn't too late to share your thoughts on the "Let's Dream" Google form
Offer funds for supplies/ materials for creative classroom projects that would: 1- encourage reluctant readers to read by giving them a purpose for reading- hands on projects that require reading to make something or follow directions 2- reward kids/ classes for successful reading days in cav-time 3-help kids make connections with what they are learning to real life situations Funds could be applied for like a "donors choose grant" with a quick turn around and then projects cold be posted on twitter or some other social media.
Put your thinking cap on...
When: Lunch, We will provide a pizza
Who: a few representatives from each grade level
What: Find out what they like, their ideas for improvements,
and lay the groundwork for student leadership
Please send us the names of students that you think will
speak their opinions, be able to think of positives and
suggestions, and would represent Cavazos well
PBIS or SEL Tip of the Week!
Classroom Tip of the Week!
Cav Time Check In
So, your students are reading either a text with you, with a partner, or they're reading on their own. You might be concerned or finding that even though when you're conferring with them, they know what's going on in their books (not fake reading), and they seem to pretty much like it (there's a good chance it's a just-right book for them), they might be getting a little listless or must more easily distracted. This is super normal and would/does happen to any of us, even with a good thing, if we find ourselves doing the same thing over and over again. So, in an effort to minimize the possible fatigue, we recommend adding in some strategies to respond to what they're reading! See below for a couple of great ones & let Cayton know if you need some help or suggestions!
Gimme 3... Is a New Feature meant to have you pause, reflect, and generate 3 ideas to the topic and share with someone.
