March attendance is off to a great start with 100% of the class present today! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ I need them present everyday since we only 14 school days in March! Only 14! We have spring break and two other days off 😱 Makes me nervous with state testing April 2nd!
One of our class leadership roles is the kindness spy. This morning our kindness spy not only looked for kindness but also spread kindness across our classroom! She asked if she could leave nice notes like I do 🥰
Glow in the Dark Day was so much fun yesterday. It’s crazy how much black lights and highlights boost student’s engagement! I’m also thankful for awesome coworkers who let me borrow their black lights! This room transformation cost $0! #winwin
Starting Valentine’s Day with love notes to all my kiddos. Excited to make feel extra special and loved today! ❤️
Improving these student’s reading fluency was the goal. So I had them select books they wanted to read, practice reading with expression, accuracy, and at an appropriate rate over and over. Then they filmed themselves doing a read aloud. It was the cutest thing to watch! They took this mission VERY seriously! Their fluency has also improved 👏🏼
Our Valentine’s Day board in the making 😍 During morning choice, students are slowly decorating their valentine bags (and one decorated mine)! Next week as valentines start coming in, they’ll fill each other’s bags in the mornings with cards and goodies. I found this controls some of the chaos that can happen Valentine’s Day when all the students attempt to exchange cards!
Anyone else’s students work for conversation hearts? 🥰
I saw this Twitter and LOVED this genius flow chart to determine genre of a text! On of my favorite parts is that students helped create the genre labels! Those who are doing the work are going to be the ones understanding the most!
