With the warm weather in the Northeast, I have been out taking flower pictures. I am amazed at how much flowers change on a daily basis. I wonder how closely we look at our students each day or at least each week to see the changes in them.
Do we notice what new skills they have? Do we notice areas that need nourishment? Do we see them as growing in the standards? Do we keep track of their growth and areas of stagnation through a spreadsheet or other program? What can we do to help them grow more? Do we provide them with digital water and nutrients of exemplars and think alouds?
