My schedule seems to be running smoothly. I am enjoying teaching at the middle school level. I have nice classes. Here are pictures of some of my lessons:
I use the Read 180 program and I began the unit on disasters. I gave the students the word cut up as the first part of the lesson.
We started a web as we read the unit. I asked:
"What words come to your mind when you think of disasters?"
The kiddos will add to the web after reading each text.
In my other class, I began a writing unit.
Some students struggle with responding to comprehension questions.
First we talked about different types of writing.
Responses first on post it notes, then additional answers after a group discussion.
I bought a few items from TPT on Cyber Monday.
I found a great unit and this mini-poster.

each part of RACE.
We are reading Edgar Allen Poe

I decided to treat myself to my first gingerbread latte this week and I love all the designs I have seen all over the internet. Here was the cup I was given:
