National Winners!

So, it has been awhile since my last post. Since getting back to school from Spring Break, it seems like all I have been doing is playing a never ending game of “catch-up.” Between work, tutoring students after school and completing graduate courses, there just isn’t enough time in the day.

On the bright side, when the students and I came back from break, we were welcomed with some exciting news. In our district, we use an online program called Achieve 3000. It is a differentiated program that allows students to read nonfiction articles at their own Lexile level. This program prepares students for College and Career Readiness. It is one of my favorite tools to use in the classroom. My students participated in a contest to get the most points in the school. In order to gain points, students must obtain  75% on their activities (they had to complete 8). Not only were we the winners in the school, but we were also NATIONAL WINNERS! My students were so excited and I clearly was so proud of them.

Check out our neat poster…
