Routines and Procedures

Station Transition

Station transitions occur multiple times in a blended classroom. During station transitions, the team or group that’s coming out of the computers lines up and collects the materials ready to go into the whole group lesson on the rug. At the same time, the group that was just on the rug is now going to the computers and collecting their materials for the computers. We give each students 30 seconds to transition, after which we positively praise 3-4 students for making good transitions.

The Blended Learning Criteria for Success is a chart that displays for students the steps and behaviors they need order to demonstrate what a successful blended learning session looks and sounds like, paying attention to behavior, noise level, materials, and effort. These colorful charts are displayed in kid-friendly language, are printed in color and laminated, then tape them in front of each computer so that students can refer to them and be reminded of the blended learning behavioral expectations.

Assessment & Data
Fluid Mastery Rubric

Students self-monitor their understanding by using the Fluid Mastery Rubric.  They monitor their level of understanding of the lesson on a scale of 1 to 4 (1 being least mastered to 4 being most).  Because my students are given the opportunity to reflect and self-monitor their level of understanding of the lesson, I get real-time data on which students need targeted interventions and supports. 

 
Collaborative Student Groups
Mentor Reading

Mentor Reading is a researched-based fluency strategy used with readers who lack fluency. In this strategy, my students read aloud to each other. When using partners, my more fluent readers are paired with less fluent readers, which in this case a 3rd grader is paired with kindergartener. My students read a story that they have already read or read a story from their Kinder buddy's book box. When done purposefully and consistently, my students have become very fluent readers and enjoy reading more.

 
Assessment & Data
Blended Assessments for ELA

Our students take several online assessments which gives us more data on each student's reading development, their gaps in reading, and their strengths. These online assessments help give a more holistic approach to a child's reading development since we are using multiple assessments. Included are the assessments in iReady, the STAR Enterprise, and My On.
