Well we packed and cleaned and packed some more yesterday. We threw out 5 garbage bags of stuff we no longer needed. It was awesome. Mr. Roboto (aka hoarder of everything) was great! He got rid of tons of stuff. It was a very productive day! Just have to do it...8 more times before we are ready to move.
I'm trying to stay positive and constructive. So, we woke up early this morning, cleaned the house and we get to reward ourselves with a trip to Michaels. I'm so lucky to have a guy who likes going to Michaels! He doesn't follow me around and ask we can we leave. We walk in...go to our respective areas and find each other when we are ready to check out. TRUE LOVE!
During this past school year, I didn't spend a lot of time working on sentence structure with my kids. We did a couple of mixed up sentences every now and then...but nothing substantial. So...I thought I'd create something that I could use every month either at a literacy center or with my small groups. Here's a few pics.
I'm hoping to add more to this packet as time goes on. Different themes and differentiated sentences.
And as a thank you...I'll give this new creation away to the first 3 people who comment!
I am working on a little something that I am VERY excited about.
I have so many goals/must dos for this school year...It's hard not to get excited. One of my goals is to improve my guided reading time. I'm going to make a schedule...A REALLY specific schedule. I'm also going to reorganize my small group activities by skill/focus.
I also need to update my pacing guide for the new year.
AND...I really want to get my writing center activities refocused and organized. I feel like my kids go there without clear expectations...which leads to chaos and frustration.
LOTS TO DO! But, as soon as I get this gem finished up...I'll be sure to share.
Today's Bargain of the Day is...
I love these Count the Room activites! So much fun...and only $1 today!
