I kind of fell behind with updating there, didn't I? I have just been so busy with teaching and my other classes that posting slipped my mind!
This weekend I am spending time putting together my Teacher Work Sample for Professional Block that covers the four day Text Structures unit I will teach next week. I'm kind of worried about it because I feel like I have trouble communicating text structure. Fortunately, it's just a review for the students - they've had it before. This work sample may kill me though, because I still have to write lesson plans, too! If anyone has good text structure ideas appropriate for lower-level fifth graders, I'd LOVE to hear your ideas!
I can't believe this is the last week I have with these kids. I'm going to miss them all - from the two gifted kids that have a vocabulary bigger than mine, to the trouble-maker who was suspended last week, my sweet little stuttering kids who I think are the most precious kids I've ever talked to, and everyone else in between. Who knew that 45 10-12 year olds could steal your heart the way these guys have? I love them so much!
They take their state science test next Wednesday, so it will be nice to have a mid-week break :)
(well, I'm not Mrs., but I let it slide. This made my day!)
