There's always more that you can do in any area of life, and deciding how you're going to move forward is an important consideration in light of this, a consideration I perseverate about daily in my blog.
So as I think of it today, I am pushing myself forward to focus in on the following efforts:
Analysis and Completion of Recent Math Assessments
I have found that a deep understanding of my learners leads to better teaching, hence this weekend I'll do a deep dive into student assessment data to note where children are at now and who and where I can lead forward in the days ahead. A few children did not have a chance to complete these assessments, and they'll do that on Monday.
Mixtures and Solutions Lab
Students will engage in a wonderful mixtures and solutions lab on Wednesday, and I have a lot to do to prep the materials and ready the classroom for this inviting task.
Progress Report Completion
There's a bit of work to do to complete the Progress Reports that will go home on Thursday.
I hit a few snags with the online learning related to special ed again, so once again I decided to not get the PDPs in that way. I hope to take an upcoming MTA professional learning class or a summer math study in this area to complete this needed task. I will also present at the 3/22 ATMIM conference so I have so prep to do in that regard. I've got some grants to write and research with colleagues too.
Back on the teaching/learning track after a great big idea share with my Professional Learning Community (PLN) on #satchat this morning.
