Slice of Life Tuesday: More Reflections, Please.

“Teachers must be critically reflective about their practice to improve.” — Frank Serafini

I have poured over ISTEP scores since last Friday when the preliminaries were sent to schools. Yep, I have a LOT of improving to do!

I asked students to do some reflective work as well: I surveyed them to review and choose the books that should stay (and go!) in the classroom library. I discovered the best advice they have for upcoming 6th graders through honest “advice columns.” I observed that they are ready for summer break! (It’s ok, I am, too!)

Soon, kiddos! Soon! In the meantime, we will talk about books, we will write, and we will share our last field trips together.

Then, when the little ones are sleeping in on June 12th, I will be critically reflective, and plan for next year’s improvements.
