1.) I'm still super overwhelmed with everything. I'm trying to get ahead yet I'm still behind. Right now I feel like I'm in survival mode & not teaching the way I want to because I'm trying to stay afloat with all this curriculum & trying to make it work for my kids, who are classified & very below level, like 3rd & 4th graders reading at 1st & 2nd grade reading levels. Plus I'm in a constant state of worriedness because I know my first eval is coming soon since I'm non-tenured.
2.) Here are some pics of my kiddos, on different days, doing some centers.
|Reading, with their "special" reading glasses, sorry they're hard to see since I had to cover their eyes.|
|Making Silly Sentences with Morgan from First Grade Fresh's Silly Sentences for Work Stations pack|
|They're having fun making silly sentences & practicing picking out the subject & the predicate.|
|Having fun practicing recognizing sight words with my Sight Swat game.|
This was Labor Day at the annual carnival we go to, he just loves the rides.
4.) My room is finally just about complete & I will have a reveal soon & I'm going to try & blog at least once a week. I've got to get better again, so I can come out of time-out. :)
5.) Ok, it's movie time with the hubby, we're watching World War-Z. Yay! You know I love Zombie (like) movies!!!
Have a great weekend, we all deserve a little R&R!!1
