Providing efficient mechanisms facilitating the collection and storing of student progress by the end of the 2018-2019 school year.Objectives (SMART format)
Houghton Mifflin’s Big Day for PreK, the current curriculum used in our Pre-k classrooms, iscorrelated to the Florida Early Learning and Development Standards for Four‐Year‐Olds (2011). These standards will serve as the foundation for data collection and assessments to determine student progress throughout the Pre-k Program.
Each whole-group, circle time, and story time lesson provides an integrated learning opportunity and introduces children to new vocabulary, concepts, and skills. Big Day for PreK provides intentional instruction in all learning domains: Social-Emotional Development, Oral Language and Vocabulary, Emergent Reading, Emergent Writing, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Physical Development, and Technology. Big Day for PreK also includes innovative Web-based technology to strengthen the home–school connection and provide teachers and families with online access to resources and literacy-building activities.Professional Development
The professional development training for the new data collection system will be administered in a blended learning environment – a combination of face-to-face meetings and online resources and training. Best practices used in the classroom will be shared through collaboration amongst other educators and leaders using Canvas.
We will continue to implement and support a digital tools system that assists district instructional personnel and staff in the management, assessment and monitoring of student learning and performance.
A key component to digital tools is the implementation and integration of a digital tool system that assists district instructional personnel and staff in the management, assessment and monitoring of student learning and performance.
