i_teach_KWe have a winter break scheduled that we use to makeup snow/flood/ice days. After march though we have to make up at the end #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1327791923/100_1877_normal.JPG

HLizee@hechternacht Regina, Sask. It was -36 C with windchill this morning and kids still went, indoor recess however. #kinderchat #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1542064460/Profile_pic_normal.jpg
11
ncingiserHi all. No snow here in CT. There was a bit in Upstate NY as I visited my grandparents this weekend. #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1670280837/NikkiFaceSC_normal.JPG
12
hechternachtI love this time of year when we have such a range of temperatures! Is Amy the coldest w minus a million? @HLizee -36!??? #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1663092778/kteach_bigger_normal.jpeg
13
pattymcn@MauiMickey wow we don't get snow like that here #Kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/686489242/Mrs_normal._McNichol
14
ncingiserHoping this #GoogleEarthPP description will remove the "incomplete" from my #kinderchat report card. It's a start. http://t.co/vzJuhsjghttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1670280837/NikkiFaceSC_normal.JPG
15
Fr_Immersion98@HLizee Yuck!!! Good luck with that! #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1665153888/photo_normal.JPG
16
ncingiserThe question w/ indoor recess is whether we try to let kids release their energy or keep things as mellow as possible. #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1670280837/NikkiFaceSC_normal.JPG
17
Fr_Immersion98@CarrieMarshall1 Had one last Thursday. @toddormiston, other colleague & I reorganized our room. Was the best day! #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1665153888/photo_normal.JPG

i_teach_KSue from southwest Washington state. #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1327791923/100_1877_normal.JPG

hechternacht@GlobalTechEd Wonderful post!! I have to keep up better w your journeys! Amazing! Want to show kids! #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1663092778/kteach_bigger_normal.jpeg
20
ncingiser@melikahb But in trying to have them "get it all out," does it raise the energy level for the rest of the day? #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1670280837/NikkiFaceSC_normal.JPG
21
MauiMickey@Garrioch Whoa, that's wild!! How was your driving today? #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1503730429/IMG_1210_normal.jpg
22
hechternacht@josepopoff @Matt_Gomez and @MissRalston have the high w 70F so far! #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1663092778/kteach_bigger_normal.jpeg
23
pattymcn@Kindergarten113 we read all we can find on compare contrast snowy day inference. Letter for Amy write letter or invitation gog #Kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/686489242/Mrs_normal._McNichol
24
josepopoffLowest temperature does not get under 13C in average. No snow, just rain. My country's bathed by the Caribbean. #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1748581129/image1326314713_normal.png
25
MariaK@i_teach_K I'm organizing a collection for the food bank. Each grade level 2 bring in 100 items 4the food bank. #100thday #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1099467705/me_3_normal.jpg
26
CassieKelley1new report cards here, finally online #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1599439129/small_pic_normal.jpg
27
MauiMickeyOur usual report cards use an awful web-based program called BCeSIS. Think tech from 1996...that NEVER works! #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1503730429/IMG_1210_normal.jpg
28
mathmurddue to job action, no report cards this year. I made up a continuum, highlighted where child was, and what was next #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1165453991/3049_normal.jpg
29
Matt_Gomez@mpowers3 paper portfolio. Hope to get permission to try @evernote for last conf. #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1492274692/image_normal.jpg
30
ncingiserWe do video portfolios. We learn lots about the kids in editing. Also so powerful for parents to see what their children can do. #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1670280837/NikkiFaceSC_normal.JPG
31
mathmurdRT @hechternacht: @happycampergirl agree! <3 portfolios- though! : writing about a kid often gives me a new view #kinderchat << agreehttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1165453991/3049_normal.jpg
32
CarrieMarshall1#kinderchat we use C-Consistent; D-Developing; and N- Needs Assistance. It's all so vague, though.http://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1646655758/IMG_0751_normal.jpg
33
edexplorer@happycampergirl not symbols but letters like I for independent B for beginning C area of Concern. Sorry! Not ABC #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1678126075/P1010651_normal.JPG
34
Garrioch@erocklewitz that must be difficult. #kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1616687972/Photo_on_2010-09-25_at_15.39__2_normal.jpg
35
Matt_Gomez@melikahb the playground is not scary... unless it has 23ft of snow or alligators. The kids were born to play :) #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1492274692/image_normal.jpg
36
mathmurd@Garrioch @MauiMickey have not yet logged into bcesis this year - best side effect of job action #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1165453991/3049_normal.jpg
37
CaraSJohnson#kinderchat we have new report card this yr and will be tweaked for next yr. Uses symbols + proficient, / emerging, - not yet masteredhttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1292124486/profile_pic_normal.jpg
38
Kiwigirl58@CassieKelley1 #kinderchat two schools here in Seattle use novice, apprentice, practitioner and scholar as their 4 delineations of masteryhttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1296339670/sos_twitter_PROFILE_PICTURE_normal.htm
39
GarriochRT @mathmurd: @Garrioch @MauiMickey have not yet logged into bcesis this year - best side effect of job action #kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1616687972/Photo_on_2010-09-25_at_15.39__2_normal.jpg
40
hechternachtRT @Garrioch: I dont enjoy the time that it takes to write report cards but I enjoy the reflection for each student individually #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1663092778/kteach_bigger_normal.jpeg
41
happycampergirl@edexplorer Ok, this makes way more sense. Sorry I was so dumb! #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1250196140/pouty_face_normal.jpeg
42
HLizeeRT @Garrioch: I made a bingo chart and date stamp the square when the child reaches the outcome, for my records only :) #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1542064460/Profile_pic_normal.jpg
43
mpowers3RT @matt_gomez Regardless how u "report" key is proving to parents u know their child. If u do that u win #relationshipsmatter #kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1579458135/Screen_Shot_2011-10-09_at_1.30.14_AM_normal.png
44
hechternacht@gallit_z Kindergarten #ece def has unique perspective on education and learning! Great model under-used, unknown to many #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1663092778/kteach_bigger_normal.jpeg
45
pattymcnWe also have to turn in retentions for next before this report card goes out #Kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/686489242/Mrs_normal._McNichol
46
edexplorer@pattymcn We aren't allowed to retain. #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1678126075/P1010651_normal.JPG
47
happycampergirl@epicschoolchats @mpowers3 @Evernote I blogged about Evernote here: http://t.co/2O2lfZMw might help! #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1250196140/pouty_face_normal.jpeg
48
Margee78@Matt_Gomez I did nothing but test last week :( #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1123291555/cropped_pic_of_casey_normal.jpg
49
Kindergarten113@HLizee I need to be in your district. Retention is very common in my school especially in K. Because is a 3 DRA and not a 4 :( #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1553680403/Photo_on_9-21-11_at_5.47_PM_normal.jpg
50
MauiMickey@mathmurd @GetUpStandUp2 Below basic is a terribly demeaning category. :-( #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1503730429/IMG_1210_normal.jpg
51
Matt_GomezTools like @evernote have the power to give parents a glimpse into the room (and learning) #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1492274692/image_normal.jpg
52
pattymcnYes we have set guidelines they have to meet in order to go to 1st grade reading level and writing #Kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/686489242/Mrs_normal._McNichol
53
HLizeeRT @Fr_Immersion98: As a parent I've decided I don't much care about grades in elem - more about personal growth! #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1542064460/Profile_pic_normal.jpg
54
pattymcn@Kindergarten113 we have to be DRA 4 #Kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/686489242/Mrs_normal._McNichol
55
hechternacht@edexplorer @happycampergirl is our evernote expert #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1663092778/kteach_bigger_normal.jpeg
56
edexplorer@pattymcn really? I think kinder is better time than 3rd. #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1678126075/P1010651_normal.JPG
57
happycampergirl@carriemarshall1 Entry age is not relevant on its own. FIT between entry age and expectations for K is EVERYTHING. #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1250196140/pouty_face_normal.jpeg
58
MauiMickey@Matt_Gomez @HLizeeI As long as the parents read your blog. I still wonder how many visit mine. 1 mom said she'd never seen it. #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1503730429/IMG_1210_normal.jpg
59
Garrioch@Kindergarten113 you are right, I do love Alfie Kohn:) #kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1616687972/Photo_on_2010-09-25_at_15.39__2_normal.jpg
60
Kindergarten113Development Reading Assessment #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1553680403/Photo_on_9-21-11_at_5.47_PM_normal.jpg
61
mpowers3RT @carasjohnson: Our rc went out after Christmas break but we are doing Dibels assessment now. Anyone else Dibel? #kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1579458135/Screen_Shot_2011-10-09_at_1.30.14_AM_normal.png
62
MariaKSo consumed w assessments now 4math and literacy it seems that teaching is put on hold until after report cards. #kinderchat.http://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1099467705/me_3_normal.jpg
63
mathmurd#kinderchat the level of disengagement on the part of parents can impact amt of detail in portfolios - some want simple, short - pointformhttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1165453991/3049_normal.jpg
64
MauiMickey@HLizee That's great! And I do have parents who comment regularly and thank me...but those would be involved/informed anyways. #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1503730429/IMG_1210_normal.jpg
65
MariaKI'm surprised that so many are talking about reading levels for K. Kindergarten is the new 1st. Saddens me. A race to be TOP! #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1099467705/me_3_normal.jpg
66
mpowers3Great idea! RT @carriemarshall1 Parent teacher interviews. anytime you can talk 2 parents gives them opp 2 see what it's all abt #kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1579458135/Screen_Shot_2011-10-09_at_1.30.14_AM_normal.png
67
Matt_GomezParents will focus on grades/testing when allowed to, but always prefer real learning. Challenge is showing that learning #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1492274692/image_normal.jpg
68
josepopoff@Kindergarten113 @Garrioch I am presently reading The Homework Myth. #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1748581129/image1326314713_normal.png
69
CaraSJohnson#kinderchat breaks my heart that we have to retain if not rdg & writing @ grade level. Will prob have 3 retained this yr.http://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1292124486/profile_pic_normal.jpg
70
MissRalston@MariaK I feel that way more and more each year. :( #Kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1354714731/196431_10150154641857269_617822268_8254640_8272162_n_normal.jpg
71
mpowers3RT @hechternacht Find methods of assessment change based on income? ie rich schls- video portfolios, poor schls "below basic"? #kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1579458135/Screen_Shot_2011-10-09_at_1.30.14_AM_normal.png
72
jasonkleinPretty interesting to see tweets from #SCDebate #kinderchat and #notonthetest at the same time. I'd suggest that there's LOTS of overlap.http://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1543111989/JasonRedWallStanding_normal.jpg
73
MauiMickey@Fr_Immersion98 It takes time to get them used to coming to the blog. :-) #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1503730429/IMG_1210_normal.jpg
74
GetUpStandUp2@Garrioch We are close here in Seattle, WA, but we are in #Gates backyard - #edreformland - few get luxury of @AlfieKohn. #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1726487986/Get-Up-Stand-Up-Get-Up-Stand-Up-Levine-Bruce-E-9781603582988_normal.jpg
75
Kindergarten113@happycampergirl Well generally supporting HW...Robert Marzano sighted research that supports and refutes hw #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1553680403/Photo_on_9-21-11_at_5.47_PM_normal.jpg
76
Josse_Fonseca95RT @josepopoff: Well, I am actually starting to decrease HW, flipping some instruction has helped. Agree on family time. #kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1745149079/meeee_normal.jpg
77
josepopoff@edexplorer Sorry, I replied with the #kinderchat hashtag but did not mention...my mistake...:Shttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1748581129/image1326314713_normal.png
78
MissRalstonOur parents start asking for homework a few weeks into school! #Kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1354714731/196431_10150154641857269_617822268_8254640_8272162_n_normal.jpg
79
Garrioch@happycampergirl love it, FIND YOUR INSIDE VOICE, that is happening in my room tomorrow:) #kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1616687972/Photo_on_2010-09-25_at_15.39__2_normal.jpg
80
HowePrincipal@MauiMickey I don't think thus initiative expects it either, just trying to catch kids who struggle early. #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1687583876/twitter_profile_pic_normal.jpg
81
Fr_Immersion98@MauiMickey Will see some parents tomorrow as we're skating. Hoping to hear if any are reading. I'm sure they are. #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1665153888/photo_normal.JPG
82
CaraSJohnsonRT @MissRalston: Our parents start asking for homework a few weeks into school! #Kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1292124486/profile_pic_normal.jpg
83
Kindergarten113@Josse_Fonseca95 My families and students are getting really frustrated with hw. With this, eventually they won't like school:( #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1553680403/Photo_on_9-21-11_at_5.47_PM_normal.jpg
84
ncingiser@happycampergirl Read to your children is what we recommend when parents ask for homework. #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1670280837/NikkiFaceSC_normal.JPG
85
CaraSJohnsonSame here! Some say "not enough" RT @MissRalston: Our parents start asking for homework a few weeks into school! #Kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1292124486/profile_pic_normal.jpg
86
HLizeeif I assign homework it is often like find as many things as you can that start with the letter . . . or find two patterns #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1542064460/Profile_pic_normal.jpg
87
acinvestsIt's surprising how even the notion of grading and evaluating even comes to play in K. How times have changed... #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1608778602/yt_avatar_normal.jpg
88
pattymcnRT @hechternacht: @happycampergirl most homework is busy work- adds frustration to home- should be learning as family together #Kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/686489242/Mrs_normal._McNichol
89
mathmurdRT @ApplesAndABCs: @MissRalston thats how it is in my school too.. we give a page a night #kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1165453991/3049_normal.jpg
90
tori1074@Kindergarten113 We use our blog ( protected) to connect with families and learn more about each other. Kids & fam love it. #Kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1740092783/image_normal.jpg
91
pattymcn@Margee78 we start reading groups in October as well we have 15 to 21 days to get set and then we have to start #Kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/686489242/Mrs_normal._McNichol
92
Kindergarten113@tori1074 do kids make comments? Or post anything? What are the roles the students take on? #kinderchathttp://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/1553680403/Photo_on_9-21-11_at_5.47_PM_normal.jpg
93
Matt_Gomez@acinvests yes a connection & a reason #busyworksucks #Kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1492274692/image_normal.jpg
94
MissRalston@happycampergirl to spend time enjoying books and stories with their kids. In 2nd 9 weeks, we do start sending home readers. #Kinderchathttp://a0.twimg.com/profile_images/1354714731/196431_10150154641857269_617822268_8254640_8272162_n_normal.jpg

melikahb@k_pryde congrats!! #kinderchathttp://a2.twimg.com/profile_images/1227523231/image_normal.jpg
97
mathmurdRT @i_teach_K: I have hard time deciding how to tell parents their kids are 'behind' when I don't really believe in beingbehind.#kinderchathttp://a3.twimg.com/profile_images/1165453991/3049_normal.jpg
