This week Ms. Barrick’s TK students learned about the peace symbol/sign. They read books about peace, and talked a lot about what peace looks like, both in the world around them and inside of themselves. They created bright, beautiful peace signs for their bulletin board, and will end the week with a guest from the Read for Peace project, and learn about how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. worked to bring peace to our nation.
It’s hard to believe that we’re already preparing for the second i-Ready® Diagnostic for math. The second Diagnostic is an important benchmark for understanding your student’s growth, which is why it’s so important they try their best. These results allow us to better support them in achieving their goals for the year. The most important thing we can do is prepare students and motivate them to put forth their best effort. Here are a few things you can do to help support your student: • Make sure they get a good night’s rest before taking the Diagnostic! • Talk to your student about why the second Diagnostic is important. You can say things like: o The second Diagnostic helps you find out how much progress you’ve made since the beginning of the year. o It allows your teacher and I to celebrate your accomplishments! o Try your best, and do not rush—but don’t spend too much time on a question either. o Remember, questions on the Diagnostic change based on your answers to earlier questions. You will see some questions you don’t know. That is okay! Just try your best. • Let them know you’re excited to celebrate their progress. Thank you for your continued partnership in your student’s learning.
