Still in Christmas mode here.  I was loving being lazy over break, but with novel studies starting next week, the teacher part of my brain is in hyperdrive.  Glad to have a snow day to do some prep work!
Joined the Keurig club! Love this color!
Waiting on snow like... πŸ™πŸ»β„οΈ
For my FL scavenger hunt...I told the kids it’s not over when you think it is!  Out of 2 teams, the team that found the most examples got to sort theirs first on the board. When they finished, I went through each clip and checked to see if they were correct.  Every example they received correct, I handed back.  Everyone wrong went to the other team, who now had a chance to try it. (Kind of like a spelling 🐝). So the group that found the most tickets in the hunt part was not necessarily the winning team. One class even went back and forth a bit. The group with the most tickets at the very end won, but I felt like a real winner for surviving this day!! You know?!?πŸ’πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
Excited to start doing some narrative writing with my students! This week we are doing the Trapped in a Snow Globe story from @miss5th  and when we return from break, I’ll have the kids write some narratives based off of our quotes.  And somewhere along the line I hope I can fit in a personal narrative!
I am well aware that this is not a pretty picture.  However this picture represents the highlight of my day.  One of my resource students has been struggling with writing.  And so, while his peers were publishing their essays, I made this breakdown of the essay for him.  No, it’s not a cute graphic organizer. No, I don’t have trendy fonts.  Yes, it all looks like a hot mess!  But finally (FINALLY!) I think we are making some headway.  We took some ideas from his first essay and brought them into the opening paragraph.  I also wrote my own essay on chart paper on a wall across from this student.  It helped that he had an additional reference and could see my process.  He seemed to be starting to understand the organization and that 5 sentences make up a paragraph,not an essay! πŸ™ˆWhile there may still be a mountain to climb for this student, today he got both feet off the ground and I could not be more proud!πŸ’“
Needing a personal day and needing my students to get these notes in so we can do a figurative language scavenger hunt on Friday.  #wastherepreppinguntil5 #worthittosleepin
Got this #keepthequote idea from @miss.beach.and.teach Her students are adorable! And I just had to do this quote after seeing them present on it!
Feeling just as tired of doing a β€œWOD” as my students probably are.  Mixed it up by attempting a #miss5thswhiteboard question.  I definitely wouldn’t have true kids write this much every day, but it worked this Monday.  What does everyone else have their kids do upon entrance?
#keepthequote
Tried out this idea from the lovely @missbertels_ !  This reminded me of my middle school days when I️ would write weekly letters or journal entries to my teacher and loved it!πŸ’›
Hoping the extra steps will help make it a positive and productive Monday for both my sub and students. 🀞🏻
