As our district works on Excellence for All - Pierce Elementary strives to create life long learners and responsible citizens.
As a first grade team we have been discussing Quality with our students. We asked them to define quality students, quality classrooms, and quality work. In addition, we asked them what a quality teacher would look like.
We created quality working levels. Students strive to be at a Level 3 each day, both in the classroom and on the playground. Students decide which level they are at daily and color their monthly calendar accordingly.
These definitions helped us to set our standards for Excellence within our classroom and create our mission statements. We are always looking to do our best!!
Our first grade students are learning the importance of data collection. Each week students graph their spelling scores. Their goal is to improve between Monday and Friday. Also students, should try to improve their scores throughout the year. We graph our class totals as well. We graph Monday and Friday. It is great to see the progress they can make in one week.
