A Siren Call - SOLC #3
Nursing Carrie this weekend
was a joy
But the better she felt
The more that stack of papers to be graded
that was sitting on our kitchen table
kept calling my name:
Do you see us over here waiting patiently
The writings, musings, and thinkings we contain
will give you a better insight into
each and everyone of your students.
Come read us!
Come read us!
Come collect information on Evernote
where you capture what you really know about kids
Take pictures of their final products
then compare those to where they began.
Think about all the information you can share
with your students to help them be
thinkers and learners and readers and writers
for a life-time."
So I finally heeded the siren call of those papers
I just couldn't stay away
Anxious to see the growth students have made
Using a fine-tooth comb to find areas
on which to work with individuals
Some results were surprising
(never a good thing when formative assessments
have happened frequently along the way)
Many results were confirmations
of what I already knew about those children
But all results mattered
and will guide the learning in our classroom
as we begin a new week.
Thanks to Ruth and Stacey for hosting us again for the Slice of Life Challenge. Head on over there to find out what other "slicers" have to say each and every day.
