One thing I am looking forward to this month is a little getaway we are taking to celebrate my husband’s birthday.
I have been scouring Pinterest and the internet to find new project ideas for Mother’s Day. What are you all making this year?
In a dream world, I would get a full day (without students) to get completely caught up on some projects that have been put to the bottom of the priority list. Then, I would take another full day to get my crafty fix with scrapbooking.
Summer Bucket List
Family Adventures – Now that my daughter is 2, I want to take her on some little adventures and mini field trips (zoo, aquarium, etc.).
Common Core – Next year we go into full implementation even though our curriculum does not align very well. I want to become more aware of each standard and what it really looks like at second grade. Not to mention my grade level team is putting together some resource binders for next year, too. Thank goodness for a team with a common goal!!
Book Study – I loved doing the online book study for Guided Math last summer. I’m interested in doing another one, but not really sure which path I want to travel down as far as topic. Anyone planning or thinking about an online book study, too?
My happy thought for the day…30.5 school days to go and yes, I am counting down!!
Thank you so much to Patty for helping me proof this one. This is a 40+ page file on rounding. Rounding to the nearest 10 and 100 is in the 3rd grade common core, but my second graders still have to successfully complete ballpark estimates as part of our math curriculum. If you are looking for some extra rounding practice, click on the picture below. This will be on sale for the next few days, too! Hop on over and check it out 🙂
Head over to Farley’s blog to see what other bloggers are up to!
Just finished up a book companion for Amazing Animal Journeys, a Level 3 National Geographic Kids text. This book follows the migration of zebras, red crabs, and walruses. If you already own the bundle, be sure to grab this latest addition.
I love this book recommendation table from Learning on Leighton Lane! ❤️❤️❤️I love this book recommendation table by @learningonleightonlane!!! She painted a thrift store find with chalkboard paint and used chalk markers to do the writing. ♥️ Her class “librarians” choose books for the table and kids may take and read any book they find there! Such a perfect way to celebrate reading!!! ... See MoreSee Less
Books have been a constant in my life since I was a young reader. I'm so glad that it's my turn to share my love of books with others. ❤️❤️❤️Books have meant so much to me my entire life. I love how books can change our perspective or strengthen our beliefs. I love how you can pass joy by sharing a book you love with someone. I love how more recently, educators and publishing house are realizing the importance and significance of representation in children’s books. I’d like to point out however, that BIPOC folx and LGBT+ folx and differently abled folx have been begging for representation for....ever. In a well know idea from Rudine Sims Bishop, books should be mirrors and windows for our students. I love this graphic by @grantdraws What have books been for you? #thetututeacher #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers ... See MoreSee Less
