LTN STUDENT GROWTH CELEBRATION!!!

DON'T BELIEVE ME JUST WATCH

Students will finally get to meet Flashlight the Owl

Greetings Teachers!

The Where to Start Word List data is in and we are excited about the growth we've seen since the beginning of the year! As you've heard, I will be hosting a series of parties for our boys and girls who have demonstrated growth this year. As you are also aware, we have quite a few assessments to consider when determining student growth (Star Math, DIBELS, SRI, Write Score).


So in order to simplify things, we will utilize the WTS word list as the entrance criteria for this event. All students who have moved two or more independent reading levels, as measured by the WTS word list, will be invited to this celebration of effort and perseverance!!!


Here's the Plan:

  • All two or more movers will be escorted to the cafeteria by select grade level teachers. Remaining teachers will continue their instructional day with those students who did not move two or more levels. This process will be similar to the PBIS event process for classroom teachers.
  • Music, drinks, dance contests, prizes, and much more will keep our boys and girls fully engaged in a celebration of SELF. We want our students to better understand the relationship between effort and results. This will set the pace for our final leg of our journey from MOY to EOY.
  • All students who have demonstrated any form of growth will receive a treat for each data source. i.e, - H. Blackman showed progress on DIBELS, SRI, Write Score and High Frequency Words, he would receive 4 separate treats!
  • Teachers will have to submit a request for a specific amount of treats, based on the data you have on individual students. This request must be emailed to Mrs. Freeman by COB Tuesday, February 16th.
