1.) This week, we started working on my new complex text read aloud plans for How People Learned to Fly. I paired that with the matter and movement chapter from our science basal. The kids really liked what I’d put together for the first several days! :0) It’s always nice to see them get excited about what I make! 🙂
2.) This was my story on Tuesday…
So not cool! 🙁 Had a fever when I came home from work on Monday, so, I just called it a wrap and wrote up sub plans.
3. On Wednesday, I got a chance to train other K and 1 teachers on what a reading block looks like for common core and what the reading block would look like. We have a team of teachers at our school, one or two from each grade level that does research on common core and then train others.
So much fun! 🙂

4. Today was my formal observation…and it went really well! 🙂 This meme captures part of what happened today! 🙂
5.) Last week, Daina & I started teaching the kids a song we wrote to the tune of Gangnam Style.
The kids are absolutely obsessed with it! 🙂
Did I make this meme for me & my teaching bestie? Oh yes, I did! 🙂
