Just a Normal ACRONYM Kind of Day

Typical Day as a teacher in public education. :)

This morning I had to get to work earlier because I had a parent conference. Our goal is to have one with each child's parent. After the meeting I quickly documented my meeting on my February PTC Log. My co-worker had AM duty and sent my class down at 7:30. They quickly unpacked and began their morning DOL and DMR. Next came Morning Meeting. I took lunch count and attendance on STI. We then moved into the SF reading series with Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 instuction. I gave them some DEAR time to boost their AR scores. I needed to PM my S and I kids to see how they are progressing towards their DIBELS benchmark. Next we had to take the Think Link assessment which is a great indicator of how they should so on the SAT10 and ARMT. I checked the math at home multiplication logs of a few kids which was a recommendation from BBSST. I got a date for an IEP meeting that had been changed. We moved into math by beginning with a POD which they are getting much better at doing. After lunch was a quick stop by the nurse's office for a round of ADHD medicine. Then on to AL History. During my planning time and the kids PE we had grade level meeting to finish discussing ARI information and what we are working on for the ADAW. I had PM duty outside. After school, I uploaded grades onto STI gradebook and tidied up my room to do it all again tomorrow.

I'm glad I don't have to do that tomorrow...whatever all that was anyway.

Sounds like "just another day" doesn't it? It does seem crazy to read it though. I can add one more acronym to my day though...I took up a PSP! :) Hope you're having a good week!
