How are you all doing out there? We finally got our 3rd teacher and have cut our grade level size into a third for each of us! Hallelujah! Let's hope this gets us on the right path so that we can roll along in the right direction!
I had planned to get started with this last week but with switching kids, finishing up testing, etc., I just decided to wait. So, now...I know what I will be doing for the next 2 weeks. Good ole <I can teach this with my eyes closed> Henry and Mudge! You can always rely on Cynthia Rylant's books in a pinch! So, I bet you are wondering why I want to rely on an old standard?
I am going to be using this freebie by another good friend, Jen of The Teacher's Cauldron. It is already prepped and ready to go from last week!
After being departmentalized for the last few years and only teaching literacy/science/social studies, I am going back to a self-contained setting and will be teaching all subjects! So, I am having to get back into the math mode.
My friend Lyndsey had this on her blog and it made me cackle! THIS is exactly how I feel!
I know that I am going to be using an interactive notebook that was created by my friend Yvonne Crawford. She is so awesome. Her work amazes me because I expect her to be more of a literacy person because she can speak a kajillion languages...so as she keeps rolling this math out, I just sit in awe!
My friend, Missy Squirrels, introduced me to this book. Does anyone use this? Should I get it to help with my math lessons and centers? Please let me know if you have any information about this! I am trying to decide what to do!
