I caught a bad cold so I’m not operating at a very high level of efficiency, but here’s what I’m trying hard to enter into the gradebook and data systems on Saturday and Sunday:
- Reading and Writing Benchmark scores
- AIMS web fluency scores
- Grades for four different diagnostic and getting-to-know-you activities we did in the past 6 days.
Of course I’m also studying, reading, and planning for/honing next week’s lessons. I’ve signed up for some lab times in the next few weeks so I can’t wait to get started on Study Island, Tween Tribune and some other fun online activities.
Next week will be a READING week for periods 5 and 7. It will be a WRITING week for periods 2 and 4. Mastery class will continue working on reading skills and hopefully study our CSAP scores. We are still on non-fiction, launching Writer’s Workshop, and topic sentences. I will be starting on sentence types, text structures, and expository writing types.
No, I don’t have a life outside of work right now. Does any teacher who has just changed positions and started a new year? My friends give me a hard time about it—but the job simply has to get done and besides, I love my work. Thank you!
