Individual Goal:

-I would like to streamline my Team Goal and Individual Goal this school year. Although we are working on this as an EY team, I feel that much of what we are learning along the way will be applied directly in the individual classroom as well.  For example, when we chose the shorter version of our standards as a whole EY group, I will be directly using those throughout the school year.  For each chapter that we review of “The Power of Inquiry”, I can directly apply components of our discussions and take-aways in the classroom.

-From the 7 C’s, I would like to work on adding more visuals to my whole group lessons.

Strand: Clarify

I can explain in a variety of ways, and when you are confused, I will help you understand.

I provide orderly, structured explanations when introducing new ideas, including illustrative examples.

 

Team Goal PK4:

Review of EY Standards for EY3/EY4

In-depth study of Inquiry through Book study and school visits

Comment:

This year is an interesting year, as we move spaces, and then move spaces again when the new facility opens.  We are reading Kath Murdoc’s, “The Power of Inquiry” and are doing an all EY book study, and are each in charge of facilitating chapters.  We, the EY team, are working together to shorten and clarify our standards.  Potential visits to schools in different countries will help support these areas of study and development.
