Teaching above the test: Thinking app Please wait for a few moments while it loads. My idea for creating this "app" came while observing my students. I only need to say "Compare" for them to start drawing circles in their notebooks. I figured that, if they have several strategies and organizers available to them I would get the same result when I mention any of the other thinking skills. All strategies are taken from How to Teach Reading Skills Within The Common Core, where they are explained in depth. Bibliography: Bellanca, James A., Fogarty, Robin J., and Pete, Brian M.

ActiveGrade - Getting Started - What Is Standards Based Grading? ActiveGrade relies heavily on Standards-Based Grading (SBG)--a system of reporting student proficiency in a number of specific learning goals (or standards). Rather than give students one grade on a test that assessed multiple skills, this system gives students a number of scores that represent their proficiency in each of the skills assessed. The idea is that at the end of the class a student has mastered the essential content necessary for the next level. Use the Starter Kit Workbook to follow along with this introduction to Standards-Based Grading. Download the Starter Kit Clicking the button below will automatically download the PDF file you can use to follow along with this SBG intro. Download Traditional Math Gradebook A traditional gradebook will average a series of scores on various assignments and tests, then calculate a final overall assessment of a student's performance without delivering an accurate picture what the student has learned.

Miss Giraffe's Class: Short A Activities and Resources (including freebies!) Short A is usually the first phonics sound you teach in kindergarten and first grade so I figured it'd be a great sound to show you teaching ideas and resources for! I constantly get asked, "What do you have for [insert phonics sound here]??" in emails and questions on my TpT store so I thought it'd be fun to SHOW you! :) Not to worry if you're already done with short a - all of these ideas and activities you could do with other phonics sounds and most of the resources I share I also have for the other phonics sounds as well! This is a long post but it's filled with pictures and I promise if you read through it, you'll find great ideas and some awesome FREE stuff along the way too!
