As part of the peer walk-through initiatives by the the Piedmont Middle Instructional Leadership Team (ILT) Ms. Barone, Ms. Adornato and I walked through sixth grade Tuesday morning. In the space of an hour, just minutes in each class, this is a snippet of what was going on.
From quiet rooms with zen like atmosphere, to rooms buzzing with excitement, from test prep tips to virtual field trips to Florence, from an exercises in expanding one's individual perception inspired by Dead Poet's society to EOG fact reviews If I had to choose a word to describe sixth grade, I'd say "amazeballs" is about right.
The six grade and eighth-grade teams today each showed one aspect a fabulous test prep, as seen in the two photo collages.
Eighth-grade teachers went the extra mile and created goodie baskets for their almost grads in honor of their hard work during their prep rotations, where they ran special review sessions to make sure students mastered their core content.
Sixth grade teachers Mrs. Lyttle and Ms. McCarthy got their students ready for test day tomorrow with a yoga relaxation lesson for their students to help them focus and get a good night's rest. Thanks to all the teachers and students who've given their best and worked so hard this year.
You're prepared and you have a lot to be proud of! Now take a breath, get some rest and enjoy the test.
