We are providing lunch on Tuesday. It will be delivered around 11:30 a.m. Please be sure to turn in your schedule at the end of your day. Reach out to SPED/BLock if you need their participation
Subs-Please, please, please secure your subs for trainings at least a week in advance. We are experiencing a serious shortage of subs right now. The trainings are important to attend and I hate for you to miss them due to not putting in for a sub early. If you sub job does not fill for a training, you will need to stay on campus.
Color Printers-Please be sure you are not printing black and white items to the color printers. Those items should be going to a black and white printer or preferably the Xerox machine!

Word of the Month-Citizenship
*Guided Math teacher groups are being formed, focused on students who came without the appropriate math skills, students who are not showing growth towards grade level goals, or students who are advanced thinkers and need extra enhanced learning.
Math tools are available for use on STAAR by special populations (SPED, ELL, 504, and SST). Teachers should be collecting data on students that will need to use such tools on the day of STAAR. This information is best collected as students work in the classroom and is the reason tools should always be present for students to choose. The work of teachers is to move students from accurate use of concrete tools to accurate representational drawings and/or on to the most abstract symbolic ways…only as the student is ready for such methods.
*Guided Math teacher groups have been formed, focused on students who came without the appropriate prerequisite math skills, students who are not showing growth towards Fourth grade goals for place value from billions to hundredths or fractional understandings, or students who are advanced thinkers and need extra enhanced learning.
Listening and Speaking Activities that support the Curriculum
When having students turn & talk, you could add these steps to ensure that everyone is engaged and provided the opportunity to listen and speak.
-Pose a question.
-Give think time.
-Provide students a scaffolded sentence stem. (ex. I think ___________ because _________.)
-Let them know who is talking first and who goes next (ex. Student with the longest hair goes first)
-Provide equal talk time.
-Decide on a signal to know when talk time is over.
-Teacher listens in to check for understanding.
