What's Happening This Month...

  • SFA has officially begun! While we are NOT connected to the SFA world, we would be happy to help support you in this new initiative. If you need help or ideas of how to make this run more efficiently or better prepare, we are here for you!

  • The next round of Coaching Cycles are beginning. We still have a couple spots left if you would like to sign up, go here ---> Begin Coaching Cycle Adventure!

  • We are continuing to support teachers in their ILC's by co-creating pre/post assessments in Illuminate, unpacking standards to identify performance scales, and modeling instructional practices.

ST Math

All of you are using ST Math in your classrooms. There have been varying ideas of what this should look like. Thanks to Stephanie Elder, you know have a few ideas about what the structure of ST Math could look like. Please use this as a resource to help you plan.

ST Math Resources

I would LOVE to begin a coaching cycle with you on how to create flexible groups during ST Math Block. Please sign up if you are interested in planning some things with me. We can create some activities for small group, games, and talk about how to use ST reports to help you decide where to begin.
