What is your favorite parent communication tool and why? I used Seesaw this last year and it worked fine, but I’m considering checking out class dojo. Thoughts?

I have a tentative job offer for kindergarten. They are so separated at the school I work in I’m not sure if I’d be out of my depth. Can I get some input on daily routines to help me consider the job?

Does your district hold back primary students? If not, do you think they should and if it would be beneficial? My district won't hold kids back until 3rd grade, which I think by then is too late.

Curious what testing others are using for K. We are currently using DIBELS. Looking for a good Math screening.

How do you send the message to students (and admin, other teachers/staff) that our primary grades are just as important as our testing grades? We tend to get very back-burnered come this time of year.

Started this bowl because I feel like primary is alot different then middle school and it helps to collaborate with teachers who teach the same grades. Feel free to invite whoever!
