Roald Dahl! I completely get what he’s saying. This type of thing is very important for children to read (or have read to them)

This page in ‘The Twits’ struck me as incredibly profound when I first read it as a child. It has stuck with me my whole life and has often influenced how I initially perceive people. Roald Dahl had a gift and I’m so thankful he used it, as his books kept me entertained many many many times :)

    Reflecting on my new assessment practice and taking some advice

    classroomcollective:

    So before the year began I really wanted to improve my assessment practices. I wanted to have an easy and detailed way to track all my notes, thoughts, and my students goals.

    I came up with this method:

    I made a new spreadsheet or sheet as Google calls them for each of my students and a new tabs for each strand. I loved how organized it was and as I started using it this week I loved it even more.

    BUT then, I began documenting all my students work and opening up different sheets and tabs for each of the students took forever.

    So I’m adapting and following advice from Joel Frey, and Kimberly Pollishuke. Thanks guys for taking the time and commenting on my post!

    I’m creating a form for me to use to make notes about my students progress and to conference with them and make new goals.

    Here is what it looks like:

    I’m excited to try it this way and hope it is easier and quicker to use!
