A Visit from the Superintendent and More

Posted on

On Tuesday the Superintendent of Schools, Traci Davis, visited the classroom and got to see the students involved in Word Study. It was an unplanned visit—or at least I did not know about it—and it was great to see the kids engage Ms. Davis and be able to outline classroom goals and procedures without any advanced preparation on my part.

We finished our first OUT and students are currently working on their culminating assignment, which involves writing a poem—a poem with a lot of evidence from some really complex text. When they are done, I’ll be posting in our hallway and I encourage you to take a look. Based on the drafts I’ve seen, the work is outstanding and it demonstrates the amazing aptitude of your children.
