I've been a SUPER slacker blogger lately. The beginning of the school year always drains me. I really do LOVE my new set of kiddos. They are so sweet, still super talkative though. I started Class Dojo this week and that fixed the problem for most. LOVE it!
So, what's been going on in my classroom this week?
In reading, I started Daily 5 last week. We are up to 15 minutes in reading and writing. Read to Someone is at 5 minutes. I've been following what the sisters have told me to do, and it's really been working. I can't wait to get all of my centers up and running and turn them loose. I know they'll do great.
We've been talking about bullying this week. We learned to tell the person to stop, walk away, and tell a teacher if it's still bothering us. Check out these pictures. I love how mean I look in one on the right.
In WORD, we've been practicing some first grade word wall words. We played Ghost Writing this week. This game is always a hit with my students. They "write" the word on their partner's back and their partner has to guess which word it is. So much fun!
I hope that everyone has a wonderful day!
