So here I am today (Saturday) linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday, instead of doing those plans that I need to finish. Haha!!!
1.) We had family pictures taken this week, so we could send Christmas cards out. Here's picture I took on my phone of one of the proofs online.
2.) The Elf on the Shelf joined my classroom this week. I have a group of 3rd graders and a group of 4th graders so they each named him & they are keeping an elf journal while he is visiting with us. They have to write about where the elf is sitting each day and what he did, if he was up to any antics, then write about how it made them feel & why, and make a prediction on what they think he is going to do the next day. Here are some pics of what he did each day.
3.) Does anyone else's desk look like this when they are trying to do their plans?
|8 tabs open as I try to search for different resources and activities|
|Piles and papers everywhere as I consult curriculum & take notes of things I need & as I print|
4.) As you know I teach 3rd & 4th grade Resource room, so my guys reading levels are below grade level & some of them well below. So we are working on grade level skills as well as foundational skills. Here's one of my guys working on a short vowel sort I created, Sort the Shorts.
|Check it out in my store by clicking the link above or this pic.|
Here are the coupons I created for them, they are the only things that I done. Click the picture for your free, editable (the blank section is where I wrote a note to my kiddos. That's why I made it editable in case you wanted to put a little note from you to them in there), copy of them.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!
