Fall is my absolute favorite season, not only because of the beautiful falling leaves and crisp weather, but also because my birthday is November 10th and my anniversary is November 7th :) The holidays are amazing too! For my anniversary, my boyfriend and I will have been together 3 years (but it will continue through forever). I am excited to do something special!
Here is my CAFE and Daily 5 Chart.. we are going through it like crazy! As fourth graders, they are definitely understanding all the concepts and accepting responsibility for their reading and writing.
My word wall has words on it!! My kids helped me pick out the best words to put up that are difficult sometimes, but also interesting :) They could've gone on and on all day!
A parent gave me a care package of crayons, markers, glue, scissors, index cards, etc. I was so excited!! It's so funny how we teachers get so excited over things like this. It definitely is the little things, and my parents this year are the sweetest!!! :)
Two days ago we were in the middle of recess and an idea popped into my head for a bulletin board "We are a TEAM, Hands down!" with our hand prints.. so we went with it. A lot of my lessons come from my head and creativity rather than right from the book. We had a little more down time than usual so I had them working quietly and then coming over to participate in this poster. They loved it, and we do so much every day to make us feel like a true team community.
Here is just a silly picture of me during my break :) I am so happy it is the weekend!!
