Room with a view

Not only do I work in a room with a view, but I work in a school that has a view that we need to start the year with accurate information to inform teaching and learning.
Today, tomorrow and Friday our school is engaged in using assessment tools to gauge where every child is at for Literacy and Numeracy. This wonderful opportunity will lead us into a differentiated program from Monday next week. In Victoria we are fortunate to have access to online assessment tools/interviews for Mathematics, English and also a tool called the Fractions and Decimals Online Interview. Our teachers are taking running records, recording sound and letter ID's, vocab test and some other items from the Observation Survey (Marie Clay). As we assess we also have an opportunity to talk to parents and start to forge relationships and connections between home and school.
