May 2016 Resources: Integrating Writing and School Showcase Sharing!
It's been a great year working with you in the K-1 Sub-Cadre professional learning sessions! Our team is looking forward to the final session in May where we will have the opportunity to participate in school showcases and wrap up our year of learning together. Schools were provided a feedback form in and were asked to complete, print, and bring to the May session with the K-1 "showcase" of choice. We will be providing time for schools (5 minutes each) to present (talk and share) to the group as part of the session and will ensure space is available at the hosting schools for displaying work.

Sub-Cadre Feedback Form and Showcase Sharing Overview
  • Do you Tweet? Throughout the year, we have been posting pictures of our sessions, classroom walk-through best practices, and interesting ideas on Twitter at #BCPSK1. Please invite your Kindergarten and first grade teachers to post pictures of their classrooms, centers, bulletin boards, projects, and anything else they would like to share. We will highlight these postings during our May sessions to enhance collaboration and continue the sharing. Don't forget #BCPSK1!
  • Teachers and administrators who attended all five sessions are eligible to receive 18 inservice points as the course closes in mid-May. We will be contacting participants who missed one session to provide an option for "make up work."If you have any questions about sessions, make-up work or inservice points, please email Lori Canning at

Kindergarten Complex Text: Butterflies
This New York City kindergarten class of English language learners demonstrates Lily Wong Fillmore's guidance in how teachers can support students in acquiring and using academic language and working successfully with complex text. These ELL kindergartners have engaged in a unit studying butterflies where academic vocabulary, language structure, and keys to unlocking the meaning of complex text have been deeply embedded into their daily learning.
