Have I mentioned...
I LOVE FALL
I live in NORCAL.
We don't have the TRADITIONAL
DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE 4 ????
Summer ( 90-100 degrees )
Fall ( 80-90 degrees)
Winter ( foggy... 60-70 degrees...sometimes cooler )
Spring ( 70-90 degrees )
It'sOK...I LOVE my HOMETOWN.
And so on.
SO now that it's 80 degrees & FALL..
What's UP in ROOM 3??
We use Brag Tags on rings during the month.
They earn BRAG TAGS
following classroom / school rules
At the end of each month...
They transfer their earned BRAG TAGS from RINGS..
To string necklaces.
They get to wear their necklaces ALL DAY AT SCHOOL
( Parents are told at BTS night
to REWARD their kids for necklaces
at the end of the month!) :)
English Language Arts
Word Sorts...NO GLUE!

On each student's brthday ( or close to ),
We make a class BIRTHDAY BOOK!
We do these during MUST DO TIME!
We have a "FRAME" style we use.
Everyone makes a page.
We STAPLE together and VOILA!
CLASS BIRTHDAY PRESENT!
We sing and dance as we PRESENT ( haha ) it to the birthday student!
LAST..( whew..what a week !)
My newest & favorite time of the day!
We are doing
MATH MUST DO's & MAY Do's
( Same format as ELA centers in the AM )
KEEP YOUR ROUTINES THE SAME!
We go the the MATH Calendar ( next to ELA Calendar )
After we go through the "math board"...
We NOW ( Quarter 2) do MATH MUST DO'S.
( Approx. 45 minutes )
#1 MATH JOURNAL
Story Problem with illustrations & number sentence.
#2 Math Paper
A Workbook Page FROM YESTERDAY ( review )
#3 MATH TUB (center) with a PARTNER
I do the whole class MATH lesson BEFORE centers.
SOMETIMES we do the workbook page together...sometimes they do.
Depends on the Lesson. We have a district curriculum to follow.
( Approx. time 45 minutes )
What am I doing?
GUIDED MATH GROUPS!
I meet with 2-3 kids at a time.
We work on a STRATEGY.
They need to have independent strategies to do ON THEIR OWN!
I can't take the assessments FOR THEM!
Here is what's UP in room 3!
