Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone has had a great day! I was up at 4:30 and out the door by 4:45 to head to the gym! GO ME:) I had my bag packed to go again after work today...needless to say, that did not happen!
Instead I picked up dinner and stopped at Target to get a few things, came home to my hubby watching Interview with a Vampire. You know I have NEVER seen that movie! I got sucked in...haha, get it...sucked in! Ok...that was dumb! I didn't get to finish it since hubby had to get to sleep...3rd shift...blah! We will finish it later this week!
So tomorrow I will try it again, going twice to the gym that is! It' s my favorite class...step...so I can't miss that!
Since we are studying verb tenses this week, I wanted them to do a fun sort for an assessment on Friday!
The first 3 people to leave a comment will get this for free! It will also be available in my stores for just $1.00!
As I was sitting down today to do some planning I was taking a look at the ELA common core standards and trying to pick out which ones I need to go over again and again before the big end of grade test in THREE WEEKS! YIKES!
One standard my students are having a hard time with is finding the author's message in a story! This is a hard concept to get. I started thinking about how I wanted to teach this. I thought about an author study and using one author and a set of their books. This way, I am also looking at themes across text from the same author (another 3rd grade common core objective!)
I started to think about what author I wanted to use, and I came up with this idea!
I LOVE this cover! I can't wait to spend more time this week and weekend working on it. I need it ready by Monday:)
So what do you think? Do you have any ideas of what I should add? Help me out and when this is done, you might get it for free:)
I am going to leave you with some pictures I promised I would take! Here are some of my kids finished posters of their metric word problems! They did a great job!
