#5thchat is for people interested in chatting about topics in education, especially as they relate to Grade 5. The goal is to connect people who enjoy learning & sharing, plus supporting & creating partnerships worldwide!
We have an RTI plan we follow...collecting data, sharing information between other teachers, and then recommend "testing". The classroom teacher is expected to manage their classroom, unless the student has an IEP through Special Education. #5thChat
We have a data coach that helps us collect and filter useful information, but we are ultimately responsible to know our students and check on their behavior, even when they are in other teachers classrooms. #5thChat
As a college student, I am not currently working in a school. When I do begin to teach, I hope to have regular meetings to discuss things with my fellow teachers and some sort of database to keep in contact. #5thchat#edit2000mane
#5thchat A3 - We spent time at our last meeting going over the tier 1-2-3 interventions at our school. Tier 2 is about becoming a little more intentional about tutoring, homeroom and intervention time to get some results. Making it more official than standard options.
#5thchat A4 We call them DBRC behavior check forms for our kids. Think of it as a more detailed vesion of a check-in form. Behaviors are focused on being safe, responsible, respectful. Takes time but we are getting results. The back end data input is fantastic. @EmergentTree
I would start with a phone call, just to get the parent up to date. I would try to set up a time to meet with them. You don't want to come across harsh or upset. It can be hard to understand emotions through phone/email. #5thchat#edit2000mane
A7 as a mom to a high flyer (math), it was important to me that all kids had intervention time to meet them where they’re at. He was able to do a math group with students a few years older and it has helped keep him motivated and interested even 5 years later #5thchat
I learned a lot from this chat. I enjoyed hearing from experienced educators. I realize that it's okay not to know the answer. You can always get advice from your fellow teachers, as well as ask questions to more experienced teachers. #5thchat#edit2000mane
