Teachers Make Pensieves to Help Track Student Growth


Prekindergarten through fifth grade teachers joined together recently to create pensieve – or pensive –  which will help them keep track of student progress in Daily 5 and math. The notebooks also include strategies that teachers can use to further support students.

A ‘pensieve’ is “an object in which something may be sorted, drained or separated…’Pensive’ is derived from French and originally from the Latin ‘pensare’, meaning ‘to ponder’, and in common English usage means ‘thoughtful’ or ‘reflective’; thus a ‘pensieve’ allows for the sorting of thoughts or memories.”

A huge thank you to SPA for supplying all the materials needed to make the pensieves.
