It’s almost progress report card time – a big deal for teachers as well as for parents and students!
In the latest edition of “Teacher, Teacher!” on CHEX Daily, I chatted with hosts Teresa Kaszuba and Mike Judson about this report, and what it all means.
A couple of other important notes about the progress report:
- There’s only one checkbox for Language (on the Term reports Language is broken down into Reading, Writing, Oral Communication and Media Literacy) and one for Math (whereas on the next report you’ll see it divided into five different strands). This can make it tricky for teachers, because sometimes there’s a huge difference between how a student is progressing in Oral Communication compared to Writing, but we only get one spot to provide a checkmark.
- Kindergarten students do NOT receive this progress report. Different boards, schools and teachers may have their own ways of reporting, but the formal Ministry report starts with students in Grade 1.
Once you have the report card, the next logical topic is the parent/teacher interview…and I’ll be talking about that when I’m back on CHEX Daily in two weeks!
