My Class/Enter Scores/Book C/Content Mastery Reteach when necessary; record retests on same sheet Enter scores into VPORT when entire unit is finished, including reteaching. What do you grade on VPORT? VPort is used for data management, not grading students.

Scores entered in VPORT can also be added to your grade book: content mastery, writing, technology participation points, etc. What do I do if I have trouble adding a new student to VPORT? I added a new student, but could not get her into V-Port. She has a password too. Call or email Customer Service. I call often!

Hazards of silo teaching Recommendations to keep up with pacing? Perky pacing of first unit is dependent upon fidelity of the previous year. For example, unit 13 takes forever when fidelity is inconsistent at feeder schools. Sharing

Language! blocks for 9th graders? Love it! Printing notes to add to binders (Royal Oak) Lexiles for parents? More reading Google Lexile Measures at Home (PDF) Awesome document Students self rating? (Lamphere) Suggestions for flipping back and forth between IT and ST? Where do Sortegories and VocabJourney fit into the lesson? In my classroom, each activity in Sortegories needs to be completed with 80% mastery before continuing with VocabJourney.

Both can be done at home, I dont worry about students getting help to get on the leader board. Implementation with less than 90 minutes per day, 5 days a week limits, or even restricts, class time for these tech tools. How can teachers monitor progress on Sortegories? View class progress: My Results/Sortegories/Unit Number View individual progress: Number/Student Name My Results/Sortegories/Unit

How can students monitor their own progress on Sortegories? means completion at or above 80% Means completion below 80% How do you incorporate VocabJourney? Whole group: long enough to get them hooked. Provide parents with usernames and passwords. Have students share Reward high how flyers like Hannah, Megan their success,

points work, tricks to and Kyle. the game. Good for students with vocabulary and comprehension goals/deficits. Elementary Implementation Stories

We used to go to the lab once a week and children choose between Sortegories between VocabJourney. Now that I started Daily 5, it is an option to choose Sortegories/VocabJourney as a rotation for word work. I utilize VocabJourney for at least 10 minutes a day in computer lab and/or using laptop carts. I do use Sortegories for reteaching 3rd graders. One student, in particular, has decoding problems, no fluency and has a DRA level of 10! I use the Sortegories for their Sound count, Sort it and Build it. I use my classroom computers for Vocab Journey and my students do it for 15-20 per day. I also use the Sortegories on my student computers as it comes up in the lessons (a few times a week). LOVE it all! L! below grade 3? Success? Thoughts? How do you access the individual

student scores on Vocabjourney? My Results/VocabJourney/(Scroll down)Student Performance/Student Is there a place in Vport to record fluency activities? Record Fluency in 3rd and 6th Unit of each book. For example, in Book C fluency is recorded for units 15 and 18. My Class/Enter Scores/Book C/Unit 15/ Interactive Text How good is the data if the book is not completed within the year?

End of Book Content Mastery should only be given when all six units of instruction have occurred. At end of year, progress Indicators can be administered regardless of book completion. Districts that are interested in Benchmark Assessments (governed by the calendar, not pacing or completion of a book) should see Benchmark tip sheet at What is Benchmark Testing? How do you get the older students to participate with the phonemic awareness drills?

Teach expectations; accept nothing less Honor the learning environment Close the door; allow students to close the door Pause when visitors enter

Allow students to lead when appropriate Perky pace Since language is processed in left hemisphere, students use right hand Students move from their left to their right Student cross their midline to activate both hemispheres Leave them hungry for more; 10-15 minutes per session no more! Do Reversal! It is a favorite year after year. Many kids start out hating drills, then loving them. Leave them hungry for more.

Consider Growth vs- Fixed Mindset Test your own Mindset at Do you believe that effort = success? If yes, teach students to believe. What does a negative lexile score mean? Lexiles match readers with text. Texts below 190L are considers BR or Beginning Reader. Lexile scores accessed on VPORT may show a negative number. The negative lexile number is used for research and evaluation purposes and should not be shared with students.

For more information, see Assessment TE: Converting LRS Forms A and B BR Lexiles to Research Lexile Measures. How do you use and store file folder games? Label each folder with Unit number, Lesson Number and TE Page number. Make 4-6 copies of each folder Store folders in paper box in unit number order Color code according to Books A-F. My colors are blown due to 3E and 4E. Students work in groups of 2-3 Use for word building, reteaching, Differentiation of instruction

Lets Do This! What are your needs? Make and Take Time to input scores/review, analyze data Hands on help with smart notebook Activity Requests: Chain It

Dictate words from TE or Unit word list BME= beginning, middle, end (sounds or syllables) Have students chain words (partners or independent) Use words with prefixes, suffixes and roots Form, inform, informed, informing, conforming, conformed, confirmed, etc. Change cat to dog in as few moves as possible Only

real words are allowed Step 6 masterpiece sentence? Book A Unit 1? Video: Vport/Support/Video/Step 6 Tips and Tricks? High expectations for all Messages to students:

Show me, dont tell me. Use your own brain. Listen with your eyes. Low tolerance for learned helplessness, excuses, passiveness Make kids aware of their data; keep it real, but respectful High Engagement with a perky pace Use ITW activities and / or document camera.
