I am super excited to be teaming up with my friends at ESGI for a New Year, New Resources Mega Give away!
If you don’t know about ESGI, YOU MUST KNOW!  
ESGI is an online, one on one assessment tool that will make your life so much easier!
I use ESGI for my report card assessments because I can assess all 18 kids on all of our report card standards in a single day.  A.  SINGLE.  DAY!   Hello timesaver!
I  love that ESGI is so quick and easy that I can pull kids and assess them on a certain skill in just a minute or two to get data so I can continuously fine tune my instruction.
I also LOVE that ESGI generates immediate data and personalized letters to parents explaining what was tested, how the child did and what they need to work on.  And it generates personalized flash cards!
Seriously….ESGI is one of my must have tools!   It makes data, assessment and planning so much easier!!
