Five for Friday on Sunday!
Hey y'all! I've got some exciting news....my blog will be changing from 'Winging it in First Grade' to 'Winging it in Fourth'....I've accepted the 4th grade reading position at my school! I am definitely going to miss my firsties and my first grade team though. What's cool about 4th grade is that I'm moving into the classroom that I did all of my student teaching in. I am super excited about this new adventure! I feel like there aren't as many upper grade blogs as lower primary grades & am hoping to help close that gap.
Thank you Doodle Bugs for Hosting the Five for Friday Linky Party!
Texas Rangers phone case...my birthday is at the end of the month...hint hint! Haha!
2. I've been on an avocado kick lately so this yummy Avocado Tomato Salad will soon be one of my favs!
3. Santan Learning Center Interactive English Notebook Since I'll be teaching 4th grade reading I'll make and investment in post-its. I also saw a first day activity where you have 6 questions to ask the students (about creating a positive learning environment), each student answers on sticky notes & then we do a gallery walk & have a discussion.
4. Teaching with Blonde Ambition posted an interactive notebook she sells on tpt with a kind of personal anchor chart for each standard. I'm trying to figure out how I will set up the readers notebook. I think I will let them decorate the cover with magazine pictures for motivation, maybe divide the notebook into 2-3 sections, make a personal dictionary, vocabulary, set reading goals, record books read. How do you set up a readers notebook? I would love to hear any tips & tricks you have!
5. The Gypsy Teacher Whole-Brain Teaching Rules in Chevron I plan on implementing Whole Brain Teaching this year, so these cute rule signs are a must. Do you use Whole Brain Teaching? How do you like it?
Tomorrow I'll finally be going up to school to pack and move things to my new classroom, yay! Enjoy your weekend! Toodles!
