Making inferences concrete with an easy mini classroom transformation. Just warming up for #rockyourschool this Thursday!
Our first (small) book raffle books have the same color scheme. The kids were pumped about these new releases! They were already asking the winners if they could be next to read the books.
Made new test shields with file folders and motivational posters. I'd love any ideas for storing them since we have flexible seating. #StartFreshBTS
Days 7-10 of #AugustTeacherChallenge with @thelittleinspirations 7️⃣ To display my standards I paperclipped 2 small pocket charts. I keep the color coded standards on binder rings and change them out as I teach new standards. Skipping day 8 since we don't do calendar time. 9️⃣ I organize most of my chapter books using @lessonswithlaughter color label system. (Such a great system!) The rest are in baskets by series or genre. 🔟 We use anything and everything in Science. This past year we used clay and animal skeleton toys to make fossils!
Skipped a few days of #AugustTeacherChallenge with @thelittleinspirations so I'm catching up! Here's a room tour pic of my favorite part of the classroom-the library. This is how my desk looks after the first teacher day. Some of my favorite social emotional books to teach with are by @mariadismondybooks and Julia Cook.
Day 2 of the #AugustTeacherChallenge is all about first day read alouds. The Energy Bus is a fantastic book to read the first week! It's lengthy so I split it up into two readings. That way I can take time to have conversations with my students about it.
Joining in on the #AugustTeacherChallenge! Day 1: Meet the Teacher Ideas- I got this from someone last year but don't remember who. Instead of giving parents tons of papers at Meet the Teacher night I give them this paper. They scan the QR code which pulls up PDF slides with all the information they need. Less copying for me and less clutter for the parents!
I got a great selection of books during my second summer library trip this week. Swipe to see three that I will definitely be adding to my library. Did you know Kate DiCamillo wrote picture books? I had no idea!
Library picture book haul #1 of summer! Let's see what books I need to add to my collection.
