I am writing to you from my home (and in my jammies still!) on our first snow day of the year. I always have mixed feelings about missing a day of school, but it does look pretty messy out there!
We are finished with the first half of first grade. I am currently working on finishing assessments and entering the numbers (based on the Common Core Standards) and the symbols to grade learner qualities in the report cards.
I believe the report cards will be available for viewing online on Thursday, February 11th.
I am so proud of the students. They are such hard workers and have shown so much growth. I want you to understand that as the year goes on, the specific standards which we assess get more in-depth and rigorous. You will not see the verbiage change on the report card, as the standards that are written represent the major "domains."
For example, in reading, within the "Foundational Skills" domain, one of the standards is to "read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension." As the year goes on, our benchmark for grade-level text increases.
There are many specific standards to consider before I decided on one, single number to enter.
Enjoy the snow day!
Go Broncos! Go Panthers!
