Happy Thursday! Well, today was the last day of the month and tomorrow we'll welcome the season of spookiness and I, for one, can't wait! While not my favorite season, Fall is certainly up there fighting for that top spot each year. I love the crispness of the air, the pumpkin spice everything, and the excitement on my son's face when he changes his mind about what he wants to be for Halloween for the 346th time since the summer ended.
Today the class took a look at the results from their first math topic test. As this was our first assessment, it allowed me the opportunity to walk the children through the process that they'll take after future assessments. In the coming days, they will be working to make corrections to the problems that they had missed. I have also shared a Google Slide with them to help with reteaching the material from our first topic. Between tomorrow and next Tuesday, the children will be working during their WING periods with me for one-on-one coaching, small group reteaching, and independent practicing with the goal of walking in Wednesday morning even more prepared for their retake.
Between now and our retest date, if your child has free time at home I will be sharing several IXL practice exercises to continue to strengthen those weaker areas. I appreciate the help between home and school to ensure that your superstars are getting everything they need for success!
