Video Progress Reports Rock!
It took many days of sitting and recording to take a deep dive into every student's reading, writing and math progress. I used Screencastomatic and my assessments files to give parents a comprehensive picture of strengths and weaknesses. The feedback was very encouraging but I need a nap. Check out the sample video below.
Reading is Improving!
The first part of fourth grade I focus on getting my students excited about reading. The two charts show our STAR reading assessments from the beginning of the year (August) and our most recent test in January. We have made progress. We moved from 49% proficient or advanced to 68% proficient or advanced. More work still needs to be done but a little celebration is in order.
