Hello! I’m a first-time elemchat-er working on a Reading Specialist master’s and looking forward to hearing from other educators. How is everyone at the end of the year?

That was the great thing about this training that it wasn’t just sitting in front of a computer but that they were expected to work together to solve problems and really find their way around the programming process.

I really enjoyed reading about Modeling Comprehension because, especially in science I think harder concepts that I already know and understanding just come naturally do to practice, but being intentional about explaining why and how I think is so important

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking over the past year for class and at school about intrinsic/extrinsic/autonomic motivation. What’s most effective for you to encourage intrinsic and autonomic rather than extrinsic motivation? What doesn’t work for you?

This is one of the trickiest aspects of student learning, and I do not have it figured out. I think so often kids are afraid to fail - they don't think they can do it. So I try to create an environment that values others & their thoughts.

I'm currently reading 50 Instructional Routines to develop Content Literacy by Fisher, Brozo, Frey & Ivey (2015). It is a great resource for formative assessments!

Me too!! Questioning the Author is a new one to me, and I'm excited to use it! The goal of QtA is three-fold: 1.) construct meaning 2.) go beyond words on the pg 3.) relate outside experiences from other texts. Love this!!

I went to a workshop on how to create digital escape rooms! It was really great!

you have a social word such as “happy” and next to it you pick an academic word such as “jubilant” so that students can connect to the academic vocabulary with their social language. But I’d like to know more about it.

I definitely think there's a balance. I do get irritated when technology is pushed just for the sake of it being technology, even if it doesn't really relate or foster student learning. All technology is not inherently beneficial.

I try to encourage the to do better than they did before and to focus on growth. If you can get kids growing, then everything else will fall in place.

Talking to the kids about how they are doing and what they think you and they could do better helps.

It was for all grade levels but the training really focused on the elementary side.

Yes! That's why I love the phrase "not yet" during student/parent conferences: Does Joe decode multisyllabic words? Instead of answering no, I answer, not yet. We're always working toward something. And this lets Joe know I believe he'll get there.

It can be but I try to keep my technology use to a minimum anyway.

I just went to an amazing training this week about teaching computer science in the classrooms. How do you feel about making that a piece of the curriculum?

My science teacher friend had a great Biohazard escape room she created last year coordinated with a live-stream “lab” (a biochemist who volunteered time) the kids got to contact—it was an AMAZING experience for the students.
