IHM Best PracticesCatholic Schools Week ThemeWelcome Back to SchoolGetting to Know You, Getting to Know All About YouThe adage that “You can’t teach children you don’t know” rings true.Before school begins take time to get to know your students before theyarrive. If you build a healthy relationship with each child in your class,you will advance their learning well beyond the year that they sit beforeyou. Here are some simple suggestions. Have an icebreaker activity or a paper for the students to fill out with questions. You might ask: What isyour favorite subject? What is your least favorite subject? What do you expect from the year? Is thereanything about you that you would like me to know? Have a similar questionnaire for parents. Refer to these papers at parent conference time to see if you areon target with parent expectations and student needs. Call each family on the phone prior to school opening. Write a script to be used for each call such as, Good Morning, thisis and I am very happy that I will be teacher this year. I look forward to the opening ofschool. This initial phone call will go far to develop a positive relationship. If you want to keep your home /cell phoneprivate from parents, consider making the call from school. Examine the permanent record cards of your students.Make notes such as the birth order, number of siblings, and marital status of parents. Study the standardized testresults, along with grades from previous years. Was there any significant change in the child’s performance from yearto year? If so, investigate why. It is important to note here that some teachers choose to give each child a clean slateand want to meet the child without background knowledge. This thinking may actually hinder your ability to help thechild from the first days of school. Assign seats on the first day of school. Children need to know that they belong. Having an identified seat provides themwith security. It is good practice to seat the below average children in the front middle of your class, followed with theaverage on one side, and the above average on the other side of the room. This will allow you to quickly assess if therecords you read are accurate.Remember that first impressions are lasting impressions. If the students feel that you care about them, they will learn more.Choose Your AttitudeA Staples commercial of yesteryear featured a jubilant father dancing down the stationery school aisles with hisshopping cart singing gleefully the Christmas Carol, It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year followed by hisdistraught son and daughter. As a teacher, do you identify better with the parent or children? We display ourcontagious attitude everywhere we go. Catholic Schools in the northeast section of our country are experiencingdeclines in enrollment that forces schools to advertise in a way never known before in dioceses. At one time, mostCatholic parents sent their children to Catholic Schools, no questions asked. Today in a world of high tuitions, goodpublic schools, and free charter schools that resemble Catholic Schools, parents are shopping around to get the besteducation for their children. Research throughout the years has proven that the classroom teacher makes the biggest impact on achild’s education. An excellent teacher surpasses current technology, the physical building, and the latest textbooks whenimproving a child’s learning. If the teacher is excited about learning, the children will pick up on it. If the teacher, for whateverreason, does not want to be in the school, the students and parents know. In the Staples commercial, can you better relate with theparent or children? If it is the parent, your school year is already on a successful course. If you relate better to the children, askyourself what can you do to get excited about the school year? Perhaps watching a motivational teacher DVD such as The RonClark Story, or the Harry Wong DVD Series will help. You may want to make an appointment with your principal or a colleagueto see if they have any suggestions for you. You may just need to be the actor/actress for the first few weeks until the zeal foreducation returns. Schools full of energetic, enthusiastic teachers will draw students from the surrounding success.comhttp://www.nce.org This site contains the Catholic Schools Week logo along with other pertinent information.)Hogan, Bill.

Looking for a Successful Year . . . Goals Give YouDirectionIf you are looking to have a successful school year,spend time planning out the year. By setting goals andtaking action, you will accomplish more in a year than somewill in a lifetime. Consider this triangle.PrioritiesSuccessGoalsPlansTake time to set your priorities for the year. Perhaps youwant to learn more about the Common Core State Standards(CCSS) or Understanding by Design (UbD) LessonPlanning. You may want to work in one specific academicdiscipline such as Religion, English Language Arts, Math,Social Studies, or Science. You may come to the realizationthat your classroom management or discipline needsimprovement or could be better. If you are a returningteacher, review your teacher evaluation from previous years;in what area can I become a better teacher?Once you have your priorities for theyear, set out to write three or fourgoals that will help you to attain yourpriorities. As a catholic schoolteacher, consider making one of yourgoals a religious goal. In this everchanging world of cyber-space, manyteachers will include a technologygoal. The SMART acronym, shown onthe left, may be used to validate the potential effectivenessof your goal statement.SMART GoalsS – SpecificM – MeasurableA – AttainableR - RealisticT – Time-boundAll goals should answer the questions, “Where am I goingand how will I know when I get there?” Make sure that yourgoal is specific so you know what you want to attain. Beginyour goal with an action verb that leads to a specificoutcome. Examples include:maintainevaluateevaluatewrite increase editproduceobtain compute submit reducetrain construct conduct assembleHow will you measure your goal? Consider quantity – howmuch? Quality – what level? Also consider what doesworking on this goal do to my energy? What do I finduseful about this goal. Why do I want to achieve this goal?If your goal is motivating, you will be more apt to completeit.Attainable goals are ones that are within your control. Basedon your previous experience or someone else, is it possibleto achieve this goal?Relevant goals are realistic, will keep you focused, and theydirect energy on what needs to be done.Time-bound goals allow a deadline for results. If there is anestablished date to overcome procrastination, you may bemore successful. If you really want to achieve your goals,keep them posted somewhere on your desk. Weekly, look atyour goals to monitor progress. It is helpful to share yourgoals with someone who will help keep you on tracktowards completion. Goals should take less than a year toachieve.Finally make a specific action plan of how you willachieve your goals. What specific things will you doto accomplish your goals? Here are some examplesof a total plan:Priority: More knowledge needed in EnglishLanguage Arts.Goal: By March, obtain a thorough understanding of theEnglish Language Arts Common Core State Standards(CCSS). My students will have the necessary grade levelskills at the completion of the school year.Plan: Read the CCSS. Read my teacher’s manual to see the various gradelevel skills. Plan when, where and how the variousskills will be taught. Make adjustments for the skills not covered. Write a long-term lesson plan to pace skills. Document when skills are covered Evaluate my assessments to see if they are trackingstudent progress of the CCSS.Priority: I want to teach my students how to pray.Goal: By the end of the year, children will have a betterunderstanding of prayer.Plan: Pray various forms of prayer in the morning, beforeand after lunch, and at the end of the day. Teach students the expected prayers they need toknow for their grade level. Teach students the importance of both traditionalprayer and private prayer. Teach students the four types of prayer: adoration,contrition, thanksgiving, and supplication. Teach students that the Mass includes all types ofprayers. Practice prayer with students during religion classesand at various times throughout the year. Teach students how to pray the Rosary and DivineMercy chaplet. Break open the word of the Sunday mass readingson Friday. On Monday, ask students to commenton their mass experience.There are many websites dedicated to goal setting.

HELPING K-2 STUDENTS STRUGGLING WITH READING AND WRITINGSister Adrienne Saybolt, I.H.M. asaybolt@msn.comReading: The ear develops before the eye. Therefore, children learn language first byhearing, not by sight. Remembering that phonemic awareness happens first, let us beginwith reading by offering some hearing tips.Children learn language and speaking patterns through conversation that includes goodgrammar and proper syntax. Always avoid any pattern that hints of “baby talk”!Children do not acquire good patterns by playing computer games (educational thoughthey may be), or by texting as they grow older. That is why experts tell us to disciplineourselves not to talk down to little ones. Rather never hesitate to elevate the vocabularylevel and use complex sentences as the year progresses. This is not counterproductive forstruggling learners! Another helpful technique is self-talk. The teacher thinks out loud ina stage whisper about how to construct a sentence or solve a problem e.g. “I think I needto read that again because it didn’t make sense to me”. When a child perceives theteacher as struggling through a passage or needing to practice, it eases the pressure ofthinking he/she has to be perfect the first time.As an alternate to your own voice or that of an aide when reading aloud, explore thewebsite www.storylineonline.net. This is a free web-site done by the Screen ActorsGuild where you will find famous celebrities reading children’s literature. Many of ourstudents don’t have the advantage of an adult reading to them, so this is a wonderfulresource.As alphabetical awareness grows, children will be able to apply their growing fluency ina more rapid manner. Beware though: speed is not the goal. Comprehension is the goal.As teachers we have so much to accomplish in a day that we can begrudge “wastingtime” having students reread a passage for fluency and expression. Don’t punish yourselfthat way, because the time is certainly not wasted.Do you ever feel as if you need an inexpensive gimmick to help students with their lettersounds and combinations? Here are two which I learned from Joan Aldrich Knight(Bureau of Education and Research):1) Use a plastic set of letter and hot glue the k to the n. Paint the k white (because it’s asilent ghost). Do the same with w and r, painting the w in white for the same reason.Because they never come apart it signals the eye that they travel together and make onesound. When you are working on ending sounds, glue –ed or –ing together. After yourteaching lessons, the students can work at a center building those endings on base words.2) Save the cardboard tubes from rolls of paper towels. These become telescopes andstudents go on a scavenger hunt through a passage (e.g. the Morning Message) to find allthe sounds you have been working on (e.g. –ay).Example: Today is Monday. It is raining so we must stay inside. Do you knowany games we can play?

Writing: There are always those who have trouble finding a topic. Many times we givea sentence starter or a general idea. For these learners, try giving a very specific sentencestarter. “I know about ” “I think because so that’s why .”To cut down on interruptions while you are working with another group, post all thecorrect spellings of color words, months, days of the week on the word wall. As that wallgrows, consider categories other than alphabetical order. Remember these are thestudents who have trouble reading so they might not be able to spot the word in thatorder. How about categories like family, pets, holidays? If a child doesn’t know thatgrandmother begins with g, he’s lost. At least focusing on the family category, he standsa chance. Ask the student what sound is in the middle of grandMother. That way you arehelping without spoon feeding, and the student may be able to distinguish more easilybetween grandmother and grandfather – both long words. Most of us do not spell everyword for the children, but ask them to do the best they can, and that we’ll be back soon tocheck. This temporary spelling allows them to move on instead of getting stuck trying towrite, when writing is a source of frustration to begin with!To develop a story, have the children “pass the pen” (or marker, if you are recording onchart paper). You start the story. Pass the pen to the next child who adds an idea. Keeppassing the pen until each person in the group has had a turn. You may want to add awrap-up sentence yourself. Don’t worry if the result is a silly story. The point is thatthese strugglers are getting experience putting ideas on paper.The next issue of the ABCs will pursue more of these reading and writing tips for thestruggling learners. If you have an idea which you could share to help teachers in thesetwo areas, feel free to email me at the above address. I will gladly pass them on andcredit you.

Friday was a very good trading day, and this simple method worked like gangbusters. On days when trading is less active, this method still will work well, but you may see fewer trades, and you will definitely see smaller price moves than the ones demonstrated here. But the purpose of these charts is not to convince you to trade this method. They are merely demonstrations of when and where you .
