How might we communicate our students’ progress utilizing a comprehensive and balanced assessment system?
One of the goals of our Academic Resource Research and Design Team is to create and implement tools that allow us to share student progress as they continue to develop their key executive functioning skills.
Over the next few months, we will be using tools like these to share and monitor student progress.
Our Head of Middle School, Chip Houston, challenged our team to accept the Blogger Challenge! Each team member was encouraged to cultivate their reflective practice by publishing 10 blog posts between June 6-17.
This marks my tenth blog post! I have chosen to focus my entries around our summer learning experiences. This has proven to be a “win win” for our family…. Not only was I focussed on strengthening my reflective practice, but we were also actively participating in learning experiences (math fact fluency, games, exploring the environment, tinkering and reading). Not only has blogging become more of a daily practice, but we have also become intentional about focusing on learning experiences each day.
We plan to continue to explore, read, tinker, figure and reflect throughout the remainder of the summer!
Thank you for the inspiration @mbstruble! Math is everywhere! Yesterday, we had the opportunity to explore the covered bridge at the Roswell Mill.
Our running list of everything we could identify….rectangles, circles, hexagons, obtuse angles, triangles, line segments, intersecting lines, parallel lines, acute angles
What do you see?
After 7 days of using the Reflex math fact fluency program, the boys are still pretty engaged. It continues to be their top summer learning option of choice each morning. The program is designed to “unlock” new games, as the students use the program consecutive days (which is a great motivational tool). I love that they are getting so much math fact practice….. over 2000 problems solved this week.
