The Greatest Show is 2018’s installment of the M-Games and focuses on helping each and every student set a personal best on the end-of-year SAGE test. The event is broken into two parts. Part 1 runs from February 15 to March 21. Part 2 runs from March 21 to May 19.
We kicked off the games by having each student review his or her performance on the end-of-year SAGE tests in Language Arts, Math, and Science over the last three years. Based on those numbers, students set a personal-best goal.
To prepare to achieve a personal best, students work on a weekly progress chart designed to help them perform to their best abilities. Students keep organized through a daily use of their personal planners, enhance their reading fluency and comprehension through daily reading, increase their math fluency through IXL practice, keep organized with weekly binder checks, and meet school expectations to be curious, respectful, accountable, and zero-quitting. Each Thursday, students summarize their performance on these five indicators using the attached Google Form.
Students who complete at least four of the five indicators in the week are eligible to participate in the week’s M-Games reward activity.
Not only do the M-Games focus on a student’s personal best, but they also set the stage for our school’s personal best. By setting a school best on two of the three indicators (Language Arts, Math, or Science), students qualify for the M-Games STEM Rising Festival on May 18th. If the goal is achieved, students will have their choice of twenty-four different activities during each of the five periods that include games, a movie in the auditorium, teacher-generated activities, a color battle, and a dance in the gym.
