For the month of September we are focusing on the thinking strategy 'Activating Schema'. This thinking strategy helps students refer to their background knowledge on subjects and apply them to new skills or information. As we head into the beginning of our 2nd grade school year this is so important as we've been out of school all summer.
Don't forget that we don't have school this Friday, September 14th due to an Assessment day. This gives us the chance to grade our benchmark tests as well as our DRAs and Math Assessments.
As always, in you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
