Summer Reading List
The secondary ELAR coordinators wanted to share a digital copy of the FISD Summer Reading Lists. Fifth grade received paper copies of this list.
These Kinder students were so excited about their graphs.
Students in Mrs. Stephens' class work on graphing.
Perfect reading weather
Mrs. Hejnicki's class got to read outside while the library was closed.
Learning New Things
In chapter 1, he discusses how we sometimes have the tendency to take control over a student's writing and insert our own expertise rather than helping them become better writers by teaching them strategies. I loved this quote: "A teacher fixing up students' drafts no more helps them grow than a coach standing in for players in a basketball game helps those players improve." He talks about how we have to learn to bite our tongues! We have to "help students become better writers by teaching them to be reflective about their writing."
