So the last day of school last year I was asked to move from 1st to 3rd grade. I am very nervous about this jump especially with it being a testing grade and I teach in FL so we don't really know what the test will be like. Also, we are getting a new reading series... WONDERS and it looks like it is really going to challenge the students which I think they will need but parents will not be use to that. So this summer I have been trying so hard to spend time with my little one and go to trainings to learn about this new seires. I have started to make things for the series if you want to check them out ;)
You can find all of these at my teacher pay teacher store HERE
I am coming back to my blog After having a baby it was so hard to juggle everything but I am going to try to come back to my blog. I have missed it so much.. I will also be moving to 3rd grade so I am so nervous as well.. :)
We have 19 more days of school..... It is bitter sweet... At the end of the school year I always feel like I have no time to do end of the year crafts.. I want to do Mother's Day crafts and End of the Year Book, and we always do a water day :) Can't wait to post pictures.. What are your plans for the end of the year.........
WOW... I can't believe its been a year. A lot has been going on... I got pregnant and had a baby in Nov so I have not been able to post and I created a new Family blog so my classroom blog has been on the back burners but I AM BACK!!!!!!
What a crazy year it has been.. Was out on maternity leave for 3 months and then had to come back and get my kids in high gear......
Our District is adopting a new reading program called Wonders..... any teacher out there every used it? What are your thoughts with it?????
This week we just happen to be learning about USA symbols, when the tragic Boston Marathon incident happened. My heart goes out to all the families that were involved. One of my best friends lives in Boston so I pick up the phone and made sure she was ok. This week we are learning all about USA symbols. So far we have learned about the American Flag and the Statue of liberty. One of my students even noticed the flag was at half mass and we talked a little bit about this. Here are some pictures of our symbols so far. The statue of liberty was not my creation, I can't remember where I got it from but as soon as i find out I will post the site..
This week we are finishing up learning about plants. We have a little garden at our school and we let the students plant seeds and water the garden. Today we planted peas and carrots. I hope that they will start to grow. I will take pictures of our garden :) Can't wait to share
I am so sorry it has been such a long time since I have posted. Grad
school is getting the better side of me. I am finally on the down slope of it
all. I can't believe this week we entered the last nine weeks of school.. Very
sad... This month we have been learning all about Plants and Seeds. We took our
lima beans and put them in the window to watch them grow. My students thought
it was so neat. I created a Observation log so that they could look back and
see how their plant has grown. They have enjoyed this so much. I am attaching
pictures below. My goal is to post at least once a week. I am so sorry I have
neglected my blog... Happy Tuesday!!!
