Tales of Caffeine Drinkin', Paint Slingin', Glitter Lovin' Teacher
I am so excited to link up with Sugar and Spice for my first Wordless Wednesday post – clearly I am already breaking the rules! 😉 Here’s how it’s supposed to work…
I’ll try to get it right next time!
One of the biggest struggles I encountered as a first year teacher was trying to get everything prepped for the day during the morning! Oh my goodness, I would run around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to make copies, get supplies out, etc. Due to my after school coaching job, it was near impossible to get anything done after my kiddos left for the day. Since deciding to take a year off from coaching and the season officially coming to an end, I have found myself feeling much more calm and organized. This morning the only prep work I had to do was pull out my F&P testing kit for centers. Oh and of course stop by Starbucks! Wednesdays are short days at my school, so between library, specials, recess, and lunch we are lucky to squeeze in a little reading and math time.
Ok ya'll... a little food for thought 💭I used to DREAD small groups in my classroom... tell me I'm not alone.I didn't know what I was doing, my kids were all over the place, I didn't have enough time.I went into my literacy block each day with this HUGE sense of dread.Once I figured it all out, it quickly became my FAVORITE time of the day... so i wrapped up all my favorite tips and packed it up for you to help make it YOUR favorite time of the day too!My Guided Reading Academy is open until tomorrow, and I want YOU to join me! It's a great 6 week workshop where we will meet, discuss all things small group literacy and you will leave being the Small Group Reading Ninja that you were mean't to be!Check it out and join me here:www.theteachingtexan.com/success...
