🤝PLC News🏫

  • The latest PLC News--

    Math/Science -The math and science PLC team met on Friday, April 29th. The Common Assessment for 4.OA.A.3, word problems, was discussed.  The team shared a website called Tang Math for summer review and practice. Classifying Triangles and Quadirlateral Gizmos were shared and explored for classroom use in the future. New science websites were also shared. 

    Reading/Writing - The PLC team met on Friday, May 13.  This week we celebrated the improvement of students' cursive and independence on inside/outside circle activities  (centers/teacher small group). We discussed the results from the latest CSA (Common Summative Assessment) on RL.9 (compare/contrast theme & topic).  We noticed the students did not clearly show their learning on the assessment.  Teachers did a reteach by modeling for students and having discussions with small groups of students regarding mistakes.  The assessment was given again and students did much better at showing their learning of the content.
