Happy Sunday, friends! Last week was CRAZY and went by SO fast… 4-day weeks are always such a whirlwind! I’m checking in to let you see what we’ve been up to!
We are all about verbs right now. I have made this valuable verbs chart with my classes in the past, and it’s always a hit! We will continue to add as the weeks go on!
As we were reading our word wall one day I noticed that we had A LOT of verbs! So, I pulled out dot stickers and we marked them as a class. I’m hoping to go back and do this with the other parts of speech as well 🙂
In math we are all about the money! We are going pretty slow with this because it’s always a challenging concept. This week we will continue using activities from my money unit 🙂 OH, and I absolutely LOVE these large magnetic coins from Educational Insights. We use them every.single.day! My kids love coming to the board to count money!
Speaking of math… this past week I started to follow up on some of my struggling students. It’s time to move some of them through the RTI process… are they making success in the programs that we have them in, or do we need to figure out something different for them? Well, with the paperwork, I often have to answer questions… what do they know? What do they need help on? So, I wanted to create a notebook that could house some QUICK math assessments on a variety of skills.
There are 40 math assessments in this unit. The good thing about this notebook is that I can use it with ALL my students- struggling or not and get a better grasp of their strengths/weaknesses.
My plan is to use it with page protectors/dry-erase markers, BUT they could certainly be printed out for the whole class to complete using pencil/paper.

Directed Drawing Tip: Have students draw on half sheets of paper, index cards, or something similar. Then they don’t take up quite as much space. In this pic, my students worked together to retell the story, then we added both of their drawings to the display!
