I know...2 blogs..1 day...
The world must be ending...NOT REALLY!
I have a few moments..
baby sleeping. :)
I haven't blogged about my class in awhile.
I AM SO PROUD OF THEM!
We have been working on writing..I mean REALLY working on writing!
I work at a TITLE 1 school, low parent support, high NEEDS!
ANYTHING I want mastered...is done in my class!
(Yes I give homework...but only practice...might get done/ might not)
My day includes EVERYTHING!
Just wanted to share my MORNING!
We have pullout interventions from 8:30-9:45
That means every 20 minutes ( yes every 20 minutes )
6 kids from my class are leaving
6 kids are returning ( having MISSED 20 min of instruction)
We do Daily 5 (sort of) from 8:30-9:45
I move them ( timer ) because I want them to have practice at ALL stations!
While they are at stations...
I do Guided Reading / Writing Conferences / Assessments
( not every day...a "Mixture" of sorts)
1. Technology Station ( 6 laptops)
2. Writing...I used to use a daily prompt...now FREE WRITING
3. Reading..Independent or Partner ( stuffed animal or real person)
4. Word Work...Spelling always first..then games
9:45-10:00 RECESS (Daily duty either AM or PM recess)
We do have a "CORE CURRICULUM" which we do whole class after recess.
Anthology, Decodable, Grammar, Comprehension,Phonics,etc..etc..etc..
Wanted to share some writing..
(of course my "high" kiddos...
you can only see my "beginning writers
if you can READ..
