Millard Public Schools “The more a teacher has invested in teaching, the more he or she tends to stay in teaching” (Shen, 1997, p. 87). Studies have indicated that inexperienced teachers lead to lower student achievement (Freedman & Appleman, 2008). constructive criticism;
they are to assist not assess
collaboration Retention= * psychological support
* instructional assistance
* better understanding of educational politics
(Good & Bennett, 2005) One of the six main reasons teachers leave the field of education is the feeling of isolation and lack of community, therefore it is mandatory for survival in the teaching profession that educators become a part of many different learning communities.

"Effective induction of beginning teachers must be linked to a vision of good teaching, guided by an understanding of teacher learning, and supported by a professional culture that favors collaboration and inquiry" (McGlamery, Fluckinger, Edick, 2006, p. 42). Teachers are members
of learning communities
We the people
of Mrs. Kowskie’s classroom…

ourselves, others, their property, and their opinions.
Are by being in the classroom on time with all materials and completed work
Come to every class with a good attitude, have fun, and do our best
And are responsible for ourselves and our actions.

November Newsletter

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We have just finished up “Oh, Yuck!“ by Joy Masoff, which concentrated on note taking; the students have gained great information that will transfer to many different texts. They have completed scrapbooks that are fantastic and most of the students seemed to enjoy this text; we are looking forward to the next.
During the month of November, the students will be reading “Curse of the Pharaohs” by Zahi Hawass. This novel concentrates on the Power Strategy: Content & Specialized vocabulary. This power strategy will probably take us through most of November. At the end of the month, the reading team has discussed breaking up the power strategies and reading differentiated novels. Your child will have up to four novels to choose from. They will be chosen by your student based on interest and reading level. Although the novels are student selected, the reading teachers will have the final say in which novel group your child will be placed.
Once again, the 20/15 club is available to all students. Please involve your child in a literacy rich environment and get them reading daily. I would also like to emphasize that you should be receiving the fluency readings every Friday as this is a wonderful routine to bring you closer with your child.

I hope you have a great beginning to your holiday season.
