Victory is not at the finish line – it’s being at the starting line.
This is a short week. Students are off on Friday; teachers have professional development at school. Additionally, I will be out on Thursday for a Multisensory Group meeting. A substitute teacher will cover my class and I have no worries because our student teacher, Ms. Cargould has fit right in and is well-liked by the students. She is a natural teacher. We are very lucky!
So – we finished the MAPS testing and are ready to tackle new material in Math. Geometry!
In Science, the 4th graders are studying Electricity. In Social Studies, Regions of the United States is the focus. [check Mr. Perez’ blog. We join his 4th grade classroom.]
It’s amazing how fast our school day goes and I always have parts of the lesson plan that just don’t get done. I always expect to write everyday. The students have cursive workbooks for 10 minutes daily practice and we have a computer program (FASTTMATH) which is also meant to be a 10 minute daily routine. I want to read aloud and have thoughtful discussions. I want to have time for field trips and learning games! So you can imagine how I feel with THREE days to teach this week!!!
Thanks so much for reading my blog. I also plan to post some pictures this week!!
