Focus

As we enter the 2nd semester of school more and more, the one thing we have to continually do is focus on our goals.  We can't, even more a moment, take our eyes off the goal. And our goal is continually improvement and forward movement.

How do we accomplish that?
- We continue to develop lessons that challenge and have deeper questioning.
- We have high quality work for students to complete.
- We make sure students have an opportunity to work/collaborate with their peers.
- We have consistent consequences for poor choices.
- We work from bell to bell (don't waste minutes)
- We show up every day ready to give our best

and so many more.

As a campus, we have made great strides forward and the worst thing we can do is think "whew we made it off the list, we're good!".  We still have a lot of growth (in all areas) that we are trying to accomplish.  Let's keep our focus on the prize, ask for help when we need it, and keep looking for solutions and not complaining about mistakes!

Nesloney Out

I will be out three days this week attending a training of Principals for Scholastic.  They're helping us design new literacy practices for parents and students. They're also supposed to be providing us with ways to get even more literature in the hands of our Title 1 schools and some summer reading initiatives.  I will have my phone on me and can assist as needed.

Monday

All IAs will need to report to their normal spaces.  The only change is that Pavlock will now be helping 5th grade teachers all day tomorrow and Puentes will as well.  The rest of the IAs will work with the same grade levels they have on other Inservice days.

The 100th Day is actually Tuesday, but we will be celebrating it on Friday to coincide with House Games!  Dress up 100 years old or 100 of something! Best dress-up wins!

Hard Hats

Benchmarks/PLCs

HUGE shout out to Marylee for organizing her first ever big set of testing! Make sure you find some time this week to give her a hug or pat on the back for her hard work! Organizing testing for multiple grade levels is no joke, and we always find ways to improve!

Also, give a huge thank you this week to Jennifer Short for the hard work she's put into PLCs and organizing those and pushing our thinking. It isn't always comfortable to be pushed outside our comfort zones and be asked things we think are obvious or haven't been asked before, but it's so necessary!

TELPAS

There is a LOT going on with TELPAS this week.  If you have ESL/Bilingual Students Marylee has emailed you all the info. If you haven't received anything from her let her know!

In closing...

It's when we're most exhausted and drained that we have to dig deep and find our strength.  We cannot lighten our teaching or show up 1/2 hearted. Our kids need us and they need us at our best every day. It isn't easy, but as we all know teaching is the hardest job out there, and the most rewarding. So press on! And let us know how we can support you!

Recognize Your Value

Recognizing Your Value


BY MADISYN TAYLOR
Change your thinking to knowing that your life matters, and that you are important.
It can be easy sometimes to buy into the illusion of our own insignificance. We may see large corporations or institutions, celebrities or successful people in our community, and compare ourselves to them, thinking that their fame or material power affirm how little our own lives amount to. But nothing could be further from the truth. Every single one of us matters tremendously. Our very existence affects countless people in countless ways. And because we are each essentially a microcosm of the larger universe, our internal experiences affect the whole of life more than we could ever imagine. The world simply could not exist as it does now if you, or any one of us, were not in it. 


Perhaps you are aware that on some level you believe your life does not matter. If this thought resonates within you, maybe it is time to explore why you feel this way. You may have formed self-rejecting or belittling beliefs as a child to keep yourself safe or to help you make sense of confusing situations. You may have felt unseen or unheard and decided that there was something wrong with you, rather than with the attention span of the people around you. Spend some time looking into where these feelings of insignificance first took root, and see what changes you might be able to make in your life and in your heart. 



This one belief in your own unimportance could be limiting you and impacting your life in enormous ways. When you shift your perceptions around your own ability to affect your life and impact the world, you may discover wonderful parts of yourself that you had long ago forgotten. There may even be exciting new parts that you never even knew existed. When you gain awareness of how much your life really does matter, new sources of energy can emerge and your sense of connection with the world is renewed.

MORNING DUTY

We really need your help with morning duty.  If you are stationed inside, there MUST be a teacher at the cafeteria door where kids line up for breakfast from walking in from outside.

The other indoor teachers MUST be walking throughout the kids sitting in the gym. Not standing along the side, back, or by the door.  We are having a lot of issues in the gym in the morning and need teachers being vigilant, and most importantly on time. Morning duty starts at 7:15am.  Meaning we need you in your station at 7:15am.

Benchmarks

Benchmarks are on Thursday/Friday. With the way the state would like us to start treating STAAR, we are going to keep this day as normal as possible.  You will keep your same lunch and recess and camp times.  More info may be coming.

Progress Reports

Please make sure you are keeping up with grades as our next set of progress reports will come out next week!

In Closing...

I always think about our perceptions of things. One of the most dangerous things we can do as educators is sit behind closed doors and talk about others negatively.  This week is National Random Acts of Kindness week.  I challenge you to take the time to show someone a random act of kindness with no recognition back to you!  If we want things to be better, we have to start by celebrating each other. That takes all of us!  We can sit and complain (whether behind closed doors, out in the open, or online) or we can vent and then sit down and work to find solutions! Together we make this school the best it can be.  We aren't perfect by any means, but we are moving forward! And it takes all of us, working together, to keep this ship moving in the right direction!

This video to me is a great reminder of how easy it is to say one thing when you think no one is listening, and then say it again when the person is standing right in front of you! What a great, hilarious, reminder of the power of our words and when we choose to say them!

Reading Changes Lives

Again and again, this year especially, we've talked about the wonderful power that lies within books. That they're more than just words on the page.  For some of us, we've still yet to find that book that helps us believe that reading is truly transformative.  Over the last two years, I've spent many days and had many conversations with thought-leaders in the field about this.  I was a voracious reader from the 5th grade (because of the Animorphs book series) until I was in college.  But then it died out a little. I lost my spark.  Recently though it's been reignited and I can't stop. 

My best friend, Travis Crowder, just wrote a gorgeous blog post for Ethical ELA called "I Read for Me, I Read for My Students" and it is a beautiful reminder of the power that lies in books.  I encourage you to check it out.

Over the last few months, as I've read books like "I'm Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter", "Far from the Tree", "Ghost Boys", "One of Us is Lying", "Dancing Home", "The Sun is Also a Star", "Dear Martin", "The 57 Bus", and so many others, I've been deeply reminded about the power in books.  About the empathy that can be built. When I've read about characters from different religions, ethnicities, sexual orientation, abusive homes, foster care/adoptions, runaways, deportation, brutality, and so much more, I not only feel my eyes more opened to the world around me, but I feel my heart opened to those who are different than I am.

Today I encourage you to pick up a new book.  A book that might challenge some of what you think you know about someone (or a group of people).  Not a professional development book, no.  But a book with rich characters, diverse stories, and a challenging idea.

You might just find that it helps you connect with your students (and others you meet) unlike ever before. 

(and if you need help finding the right book, let me know! I'd love to sit and book talk some books with you!)

Love Projects: 3rd Grade Selfies (WOW This would be GREAT to do with our students)




In Closing...

If you're not book talking books at least 2-3 times a week to your students (and allowing them to do the same) you're so missing out on sharing great stories with your kids.  If you're not sure where to begin, or how to do a book talk, let me know! I would love to come into your class and book-talk 10-15 books to share with your students to get them hooked.  Reading is what changes lives.  Reading is what gives us an escape, new friends, fantastical voyages, and so much more.  And when we help someone find a love for reading, we not only change their lives, but also the other lives they come in contact with.

Matt de la Pena shared a special read-aloud of his new book "Love" for World Read Aloud Day. If you'd like to share with your students.

Staying in Pain

Staying in Pain

BY MADISYN TAYLOR

Pain comes and it goes. It is just one component to the grand cycle of life. And when experienced as such, pain can serve as an important teacher. It is when we get stuck in our pain that it becomes detrimental to our well-being and development. If you notice that you feel closed-off, resentful, heavy-hearted, or that you try very hard to avoid being hurt again, there may be a part of you that is still stuck in pain.

We can get stuck in our pain for many reasons. As children, it was natural for us to cry, throw a tantrum, and let the experience move through us. By fully feeling our pain in this way, our emotions would wash us clean, leaving us open and available to new experiences.

With age, though, we might have determined that expressing emotion was no longer appropriate, and so we developed a variety of coping strategies to deal with our discomfort.

We may have learned to stuff our feelings down or to run away from them. Perhaps we began thinking that staying closed and unwilling to try new things would keep us safe from heartbreak, safe from rejection, and safe from failure. We may have even gotten so used to being in pain that the thought of being without it scares us. But, if we continue to hold onto it longer than necessary, we are expending a lot of energy that could instead be channeled into making our life experiences more positive.

If you notice that you are continually connecting with the same familiar patterns of pain, consider embracing your feelings and letting go of your hurt. Whether your pain is from childhood or from an experience last week, see if you can give it room to move. When it does, you will reconnect with a wonderful source of your own vital energy.

Pain can serve as one of life's great teachers, but it is important to move through it and not become stuck in our pain.

In Closing...

I will always remember what Ron Clark told me when I was feeling like I was doing everything in my power to please certain people.  He said "Todd, you can buy every person a Ferrari, and someone will still complain that theirs isn't red".  Wow, powerful right? It still stands as my reminder that we can't please everyone. We're going to upset people with our decisions, we're going to hurt people's feelings, and some people just like to wallow in their perpetual negativity.  BUT that doesn't mean we stop trying to understand where they're coming from, and it doesn't mean we give them any less empathy. We just don't let their negativity control our emotions.

Worthiness

Worthiness


BY MADISYN TAYLOR

Our worth of being on the planet at this time cannot be judged as we are all worthy and essential to being here now.
The issue of worthiness may come up in many areas of our lives, as we ask, often unconsciously, whether we are worthy of success, love, happiness, and countless other things, from supportive relationships to a beautiful home. In the end, though, it all comes down to one thing: our willingness to claim our space in this life as humans on this planet at this time. When we no longer question whether we are worthy, because we know that we are meant to be here to fulfill a particular purpose, a purpose that no one other than us can fulfill.

There are no replacements who can take over and live our lives for us, no other person who has had the experiences we have had, who has access to the same resources and relationships, who carries the same message to share with the world. Our purpose may be large or small, and in most cases it is multi-leveled, with important actions taking place on the interpersonal level, as well as in terms of the work we do in the world. Small acts of kindness share the stage with large acts of sacrifice, and only through accepting and honoring our place can we know what we are called to do and when.

Ultimately, we are all equally, exactly, completely worthy of being here in this life. Moreover, we are all essential to the unfolding plan of which we are each one small, but important, part. If we suffer from low self worth, it is because we have lost track of understanding this truth, and allowing it to guide our actions in the world. Seeing ourselves as part of something larger, as beings called to serve, is the ultimate cure for feelings of unworthiness. In the end, it's not about evaluating ourselves as worthy or unworthy, so much as it's about accepting that we have been called here to serve and taking the steps required to listen and respond to what our lives are asking us to do.

We are raising money to build up our playground (with equipment, a chicken coop, butterfly habitat, gardening, and more) and also a potential rock wall in the gym!

Staff Meeting

We will have a staff meeting at 3:45pm Monday. It is important all staff is there for the beginning part with Boosterthon People and then all certified teachers will stay because we have to talk about SLOs (Student Learning Objectives per TEA and part of T-TESS this year). This meeting will last until 4:45pm so we can get this work done that is required of us by the state.

Stories from Webb

I am so excited about the book releasing on Wednesday!! The Navasota Examiner had a great little article in their paper this week about it.  Mrs. John C Webb also called me on Friday to let me know how proud she was of everyone who took time to share their stories, and for all who are putting in their time every day to serve our kids.  She said that her husband would be proud and she wanted us to know that.  If you'd like a copy of "Stories from Webb" and you don't want to wait or don't want to order online, I have them for $20 in my office!

UIL is taking place on Tuesday at High Point.  We will have quite a few kids competing and a lot of different staff heading over there.

Storytelling

Storytelling

BY MADISYN TAYLOR
Most cultures use storytelling to pass down family history using the power and energy of the human voice.
Ever since our ancestors could first communicate, we have gathered to share our stories. We have passed along creation tales and tragic stories of love lost. We have repeated accounts of real heroism and simple stories of family history. When our forebears lived closer to the land and to each other, the practice of storytelling was imbued with ritual and occasion. Members of the tribe would often gather around the fire to hear their genealogy recited aloud by an elder or master storyteller. Listeners could track how their own lives, and the lives of their parents, interwove with the lives of the other tribe members, as everyone's ancient relatives once played out similar life dramas together.

As a custom, some cultures' storytellers repeat the same tale over and over because they believe that each time you hear it, you come to the story as a different person and view the plot and characters in a new light. Hearing the story over and over is a way to gauge where you have been and where you are now on your path of personal evolution. It also helps the younger generation learn the stories so that they can pass them to forthcoming generations.

When we hear others tell stories, we can laugh at their humorous adventures, feel the thrill of exciting encounters, see parts of ourselves in them, and learn from the challenges they face. Though most of our formal traditions of storytelling are lost, it does not mean we have to be without. We can begin new practices in our own families of listening to one another, of honoring our own journey, and witnessing the journeys of those around us. We can revive the fireside communal by gathering around the campfire or hearth with family and friends, sharing in stories. By building new practices of storytelling, we give ourselves and the ones we love an opportunity to draw ever closer in our shared human experience.

Week at a Glance

Monday - No School
Wednesday - Writing Vertical - 3:30pm - TP Room

Stories from Webb

The book I wrote, with contributions from about 50 of YOU, is up for pre-order!!!  I can't wait for everyone to get a chance to read the book come January 24th.  I loved the little story that started this blog post, because I so believe stories have power.  I will tell you, the people I got to endorse the book were ranting and raving about how powerful your stories are.  And within the first two days of just PRE-ORDER we were in the top 400 books on Barnes and Noble, and the top 5,000 books on Amazon (which is HUGE). We're also the #1 New Release in one of Amazon's book categories, which is exciting!  So, share the news, and keep sharing your stories. They're needed.

Walkthroughs

This week in walk-throughs we're going to be looking at what questions you ask your students, and using those questions for a TP activity soon!  Question deep and challenging!
