The Knights News 12-1-2014

now Our Kids, Meet their Needs, Up the Mountain to T-2-4!

I am sure that everyone enjoyed their time off!  The next 3 weeks go by so fast!  It is really hard to believe that in just 3 short weeks the first semester will be over.  Please make every moment count!

Each of the grade levels determined what ELL strategy they are going to focus on these next 3 weeks!  I know word walls is one area of focus!!  Our ELL students will succeed with your help and attention to their learning needs!  The kids at NMS are lucky to have teachers that are working so hard for their success!  Keep pushing them, using the ELL strategies, and monitoring student success!

Lesson Planning – As you plan your daily lessons – please keep in mind for each lesson the “input” that you are going to deliver to your students.  Your attention to detail for this section of your plans is critical.  You are the expert – you know what you want them to learn that day – so pay close attention to how you are going to deliver that instruction.  This is where your planning it critical – As you create your daily plans – really think through and write down what you will say and do to deliver the instruction – nothing should be left to chance.

Thank you to the ELA department for all of you turning in your writing samples on time!  Nice job!  Social Studies your writing samples are due on Monday, Dec. 1.  Math Department your writing samples are due on Dec. 8!  Thank you!
