This week I made LOTS of head way with both my English as well as Spanish students. They all need help, but in different scales to say the least. I had two readers come in this week. (Had to catch up on the fact that I didn’t have one last week)
Grade level chose Weather as our hallway decoration. I think we did a fantastic job. The kids pitched in a lot and most of all they all loved it.
Please note the rain drops coming down. Get your umbrellas!
I think for my birthday I’m going to cover the building in bow ties, just because it’s wrong.
We’re spotlighting our math skills this week. We pick a strategy to focus on and try to use it as much as we can. We write about it, talk about it, use it and most of all learn it.
Many schools use Accelerated Reader, but my school takes it to another level. We had a kick off to get the kids excited about AR and earning as many points as possible. The school puts out a goal a long with a prize. This year they’re having a school wide picnic with all kinds of fun and games. Let’s see how the kids do.
The goal is 35,000 each grade/class has a part to contribute. I have to get my students to each earn 66 points. That’s a lofty goal considering everything. We read tons of books each week, but getting them to stick is going to be tricky. I’ll keep you posted.
And yes, there were bowties this week as well.
Week 3 is in the books. If this was your 1st or 3rd week, how did it go?
I’m looking for a few guest bloggers. If you’re interested, please let me know.
