|Boss in his barn boots. Not sure what he's planning...|
If you are not a teacher, you might wonder what is going on at my house, but if you are then you smile and nod. You know, because the same thing is happening, or has happened, at your house.
I'm going crazy trying to pull everything together. The kiddos come back Aug. 8, but work officially starts July 31. I really want my stuff done before the year's to do lists start rolling in. Help!!
I have managed to complete a few projects:
Do you know that Weather Chart that has been going around Pinterest?
Well, I finally made mine with the help of Rowdy in Room 300 (click the picture to grab yours). I also made my own weather graph that matched so my kiddos would have a weather graph in their Calendar Journals. You can grab your copy here. I also put together my Calendar flipchart complete with math stretch templates and problem of the day.
Then staying on the subject of Guided Math, I created a teeny tiny Guided Math book to keep me organized during small groups on conferences.
I've got my Weekly Schedule in there (because I need a little road map when planning), a Quick Planner for Math Workstations, and Guided Math Lesson Plan that I grabbed from Thinking of Teaching. Click on over to grab your own copy! I also made a conference sheet to take with me. I wanted one sheet that could hold all of my students so that I could have all my info in one place. Click here to grab it for yourself.
Now I'm working on finishing up my Pirate Communication Folders that I grabbed from Jodi Southard from Fun in First. At $3.00 they are a steal and completely editable. She has several styles. My teaching partners purchased the Peace Communication Folder because they liked mine so much. Check them out here.
But for the best news...I was nominated for another award. I can't believe it!
Thank you so much to Katherine at Blessings of Teaching for making my day. In all the craziness this was great! This award is named for the German word "liebster", which translates to "beloved" or "favorite" and is given to a "new and upcoming blogger."
