Tomorrow is one of my teammates birthday!! The rest of the fourth grade team chipped in to buy the supplies to make a school supply cake. Me being the crafty one made it, and I had to share it with the world!
Hopefully she doesn't stumble on my blog before the morning. I am waiting to share with my teammates that I started blogging until after her birthday so I could make this post!
This week we are working on poetry using some AMAZING resources from TpT. Last week we were using I'm Lovin' Lit's interactive poetry notebook! I just love all of her poetry notebooks! The kids really love them too, cutting and pasting while getting some extra time to talk to each other is amazing in their books. This week we will finish up the pages we didn't get to yet and then moving on to poetry centers. We use Reading A-Z to read two of their poetry books: How Long? and Why Do I Care?How Long? is about measurement, something my 4th graders need more help with. Why Do I Care? has different poems on the different school subjects and explains why they are all important.
Thankfully in math we have covered all of the standards! Now it is review time. My students have a really hard time with division, so that will be the first thing we hit. We will be using Movie Madness from Teaching with a Mountain View and other division centers from a kit we have in our school from Lakeshore Learning.
In Social Studies we are beginning our biography reports. The students had to get a book on any famous person of their choice. This week we will be reading our books in class. In science we are working on learning about the moon. We will be using Jessica Scott's Phases of the Moon Interactive Notebook. Can I just say thank God there I found her because she covers all of the NC science standards!
I have decided to start this blogging thing! I love looking at other teachers’ blogs and getting some awesome ideas and figured I could share some my teaching with the world.
I moved to NC in July 2013 to teach 4th grade at a charter school. I love, love, love my school and being in 4th grade. 4th graders are a crazy bunch, but I love talking to them and being able to hold a conversation with them. This year has been wonderful seeing my students grow, learn, love, and laugh.
I can not wait to start sharing with everyone!
