Second Time...

Second time's the charm... I passed! What a huge relief! Good luck to everyone- and if you didn't pass- take the weekend to have a little pity party (I know how you feel) and then get back in the...

Last year

I live on the Pacific Coast... last year, scores were set to be released on Saturday, but I checked the website on Friday about 7pm and they were there. Check tonight!

prediction

Everything seems to be a week ahead of schedule this year. I did my first attempt last year. This year, renewal scores came out one week earlier than last year. The letter from NB requesting that...

Swat

My kids love to play SWAT. Write the vocabulary words on the board. Split the class into teams and have one person from each team come up and give them a flyswatter ( or make one using a ruler and...

getting anxious

I looked and renewals scores are being released a week earlier this year than last year. Here's hoping the other scores also get released sooner!

No common core

There are no Common core science standards. Your state will have some, or they may have recently adopted the NGSS standards like my state of Washington has.

Grade throughout

I would rotate who turns it in each day and grade a few at a time. For example, red team Mondays, blue on Tuesday etc. then you'll only have a few problems to correct each day.

US History?

If you're doing US history...stick with a red, white, and blue theme. I saw a cute idea to put flag buntings for window valances. Schoolgirl style (Google it) has a really cute Americana theme.

my opinion

I heard from my facilitator that the graders are trained to look for evidence wherever they find it. So I would think that would be okay. I recently went back and re-read my entry 1 without the...

Thanks

Thanks for the info... after looking into it more, I realized it was just checking to see that they entered your score correctly. I thought it was a third grader. Oh well... back to work!

Score Question

So I was 8 points away from scoring my 275. Such a bummer! I was looking at the scores and on one of my entries, I scored a 2.0. If I had scored a 2.5 I would have passed. In the letter they sent...

Here's my co-workers story... I got to work and ran to her room to ask if she'd checked her score (I'm waiting for my scores on Saturday and she did Take One last year). She got on the computer and...

Yes!

I wasn't thinking about it at all until November hit. I was actually glad of the time to NOT stress. I too have a plan B just in case... but I'm hoping for the best!!

Nervous

So this was my first week in 3rd grade! I previously taught 4th for three years and 5th for two years. To say I'm feeling overwhelmed is an understatement! I'm hoping to run my math and reading...

Americana!

If you're the patriots, you could have an Americana theme... flags- red, white, and blue... if you name your teams, they could be past presidents, like the Lincoln team, Jefferson team... etc. Or...

check your entry four docs

I looked at the directions for packing the entries. It shows that you place your written comments for the first accomplishment, then the evidence... then the second commentary and evidence and so on....

random

Mine was just a random file name like NB entry 3. Since the whole thing is uploaded under your account, I'm assuming that's okay.
