I am lucky enough to have a classroom and I spent three days cleaning out the classroom and organizing things. I even found a supplies request from 1969! LOL.
The closet before and after:
Every shelf was loaded with old books and manuals!
I removed a shelf & added a spring rod
Now I have a spot for my coat and bag.
I am teaching main idea and details to grade 4.
I started with a lesson on visual text:
In grade 4, I had mystery main idea bags.
Students loved this activity!
We then moved onto nonfiction texts.
The students will do stations at the end next week, so I can assess their understanding. I am hoping they think it's fun and do not realize I am testing them. LOL
I did some inference work with the 5th graders. I will take some pictures this week to share!
I have a lot of students to service and I am still trying to find a plan book templet that I like. My schedule is different everyday, so I feel a bit disorganized when planning.
My husband saw this on Facebook. I thought it was funny:
It's been a busy and nice first two weeks! I am so glad it is a three day weekend!
