First I want to tell you a few things that I'm pumped about. Last week I had three lovely, lovely ladies visit my classroom. They came on their DAY OFF to see
if I was a big fat faker, my class in action... HA! It was so fun to spend the day with people who are as passionate about teaching as I am! Thank you girls!!!
This is an open invitation... come and visit us! We would love to have you!
Speaking of visiting! This week I will be at the Missouri Early Learning Conference
(listening... not speaking... WHEW!)
I would love to meet up with any of you who are going!!!
I am super excited to see Matt Glover for the first time and Debbie Diller for the ump-teenth time!
Also, this week, we will be launching these two new units! Kim's unit will take the students through the process of talking about characters, settings, and other story elements...SMART unit!
Our Unit 3 will introduce the students to procedural texts. OH! BOY! I actually started this unit on Friday and they. do. not. know. this. genre. However, I know that if I trust the process, I will see wonderful gains. I also think this type of writing will help the students write in a sequentially during other genres.
Here are my lessons for next week.
Have a great week! Hang tough on Wednesday!!!
