Happy happy Saturday! I have now heard from three of my upcoming students. Those postcards have made it into their hands. Hooray.
I worked Friday in our classroom, and it is as finished as I can make it! Woo Hoo!
The clipboards are completed!
Every adult who saw them loved them! I sure hope my students enjoy working with the clipboards as much as I enjoyed making them.
The team points board is up!
Mr. Smith, Mrs. Hogan and I work as a team with our team points.
Each table has a number 1-6. The students who sit at table 1 in my room also sit together at table 1 in Mr. Smith's room. We award team points based on work habits, attitude, organization and behavior. At the end of each two weeks, Mr. Smith and I combine our team points. Each student from the team with the most points wins a surprise prize!
The anchor charts that I displayed in the first blog entry, "Setting the Stage" are now all in their designated locations. There are still a few more in the works, believe it or not!!!! But here they are.
|Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening = Literacy|
See below regarding our classroom library!
|Common Core asks us to provide evidence from the reading to support our opinions.|
Beware the ISTEP Lady... What does she look for in your writing?
|We will add book titles to this board as we find books with these life lessons.|
Until next time...peace be with you! Mrs. T.
