I am so excited to link up with for the first time.
Although I did not use my GOOD camera this week, I do have some things to share.
1. After visiting Maria Walther's Classroom last week I was excited to return and dive into some Poetry. I have always used Writer's Workshop in my classroom but never quite felt comfortable teaching Poetry. I know, I know it's not in the CC but I see it as enrichment. I guess the most important thing I learned is that with teaching poetry simple is best. We have also been reviewing adjectives so each student made a poem using adjectives to describe themselves.
CRACKS ME UP!
Mrs. Funk I'm sorry for the badness I done. Do you forgive me yes or no? He wrote, circle yes or no but crossed out the OR NO. How smart is that? This little guy is one of those that makes you so mad sometimes but it doesn't last long because of the adorable things he says.
3. We took ITBS last week so as a reward for working so hard our PTO bought the students DILLY
BARS, alright I had one too. I could resist the opportunity to integrate a little learning into our fun reward. I will link up a copy next week because I forgot to put it in my Dropbox.
4. On Friday's we always meet up with our friends in third grade for some peer tutoring, sometimes students read together, work on math facts, spelling, or a fun activity like we did today. Since we only have about one more meeting with our third grade friends we made friendship bracelets today.
5. It was field trip week for my daughter so on Wednesday I took a personal day and went with her on her 3rd grade field trip to the St. Louis Arch. I am telling you what she was one excited little girl and it couldn't have been a more beautiful day.
Now off to check out what everyone else has been doing this week.
