Some topics that my kids need a little more practice in are fractions, line of symmetry, word problems, measurement, and then I think we will be good to go with math..
I also want to incorporate technology to help them practice and I came across Math Slice, which has online tests for students to practice for grades 3-5. Check it out: http://www.mathslice.com/mathmocktest.php
I also want to tell you that there's still time to enter Teacher's Notebook's Tablet for the Teacher!!! You can enter once a day until January 31st! How sweet of Debbie and Steve... they are just amazing and so sweet. Please consider opening up a store with them if you haven't done so already.. They are the nicest people and you receive 100% of your profits!! Only $20 to start a membership :) I will never forget when Terri from Terri's Teaching Treasures bought my membership for me when I didn't have any money.. I am just SO freaking blessed with wonderful people. (That means YOU, Sara Ventrella!! My angel!!)
For Social Studies, I introduced DBQs for the first time to my class :) I do not know when they start in "full force" (probably 5th or 6th grade I imagine?) but I figured that my kiddos could handle them, and what better than to start with the Revolutionary War.. I loved teaching about this war.. if only my kids could field trip to Saratoga (for the Battle of Saratoga).. I don't think we can afford a whole bus for my little old class and have them pay. Maybe I will look into it though for a weekend trip and meet the kids up there or something with their parents. With only 7 students, I can do a lot with them!
I started a 90 Day Challenge this past Monday to lose weight and feel great :) I have a beachbody coach Monica, since I started Insanity last year. Well, I did complete Insanity and it was terrible (but worthwhile!) and then winter and Christmas came, and so did the weight. So, I am determined more than ever to be successful and eat right, exercise, and lose lots of weight. My overall goal is 25 pounds, but my goal for the 90 days is 10 pounds (but also gaining tons of muscle from Insanity again!) I am doing the program 4 days a week, instead of 6-7. I am extremely busy with working and my other jobs to make ends meet, and I need time to hang out too.
I want to feel great about myself again :) Wish me luck!
