Character Trait for September: Responsibility, so maybe we won’t do this. I haven’t heard from Chick-fil-A and I have to admit defeat. How about if you send me kids to the office that have done something great? Maybe a principal positive referral form? Student council could maybe create something…
SHE'S UP TO ELEVEN STEPS! YOU CAN DO THIS KATE!!
So ROAR was the winner (Reach Out And Read) Might have to change the “reach out” part if they start to reach out. The writing vertical team said YES to this idea. On Fridays while vertical teams are working students need to read silently. This is difficult for K and 1 so for them we would like to see them read themselves for 15 minutes and then the teacher could read to them for 15 minutes. Marci will be looking for some simple comprehension sheets so you can conference with students. This would be a great time for book groups. Relax and read!
I am still pouting-I wanted OSCAR time-we could have Red Carpet Readers! Maybe next year :( You do have to admit BARF would have been really funny. :)
Fluency in grades 4-6:
Like CPS Science on facebook. I think maybe they are on twitter too?? @CpsScience is that a twitter thing?
Elizabeth told me about the science guy in Columbia that writes science articles for the Columbia Tribune-check them out.
Text vs texting!!
Writing Vertical Team Meeting:
Science Vertical Team Meeting on Friday
I did change some of the “subs” for the teams, I needed to fit sixth grade in the concept. Cordwell and Campbell do breakfast duty so they come to your rooms a little later. At this meeting I want Elizabeth to talk about what she learned at her conference. We will talk about ways to integrate reading skills into science, how we can add more hands on activities into our science curriculum.
Rodriguez/Piening-can someone tell her when you see her in case I forget
