Accomplishments

Sometimes I *might* take a few photos... I always have my phone on me :)  I ask the students if I can  take a photo of their work because after all, it's their work.  BUT sometimes, they are so proud of their accomplishments they ask me to take a photo.  For some, it's no big deal, however, with some of the more shy students, they are a little leery.  It is the look or twinkle in their eye that makes me ask them if I should take a photo.

 We were doing iPads and this little froglet did this all on her own.  She is ELL (English Language Learner) This is a fabulous accomplishment for her and I was so excited for her.
This is part of our morning work.  This was a favorite of mine just because they had to write about a frog.  Their sentence was "Frogs are poison."

Summer Shares

During the year, I feel like I never have time during the school year and I'm not even teaching full time!! I take zillions of photos when I'm in a classroom.  The students all give permission for me to take photos and will find me when they want me to take a photo!!

So as you've noticed that I just share random photos from whatever we were doing.

I'm busy over at kinderpondjr.blogspot.com where we have Tot School for my 2 year old.

I will continue to share photos but I also wanted to see if you were on Periscope.  WHAT???  You don't know what Periscope is? It's like a video conference where teachers chat about all different sorts of things- from personal to showing off their classrooms!



So I'm on there-- I have yet to turn the camera on... I've not yet been given a "shout out" to share my 3 facts. *hides now*  I share when I'm in a Periscope and it's something that I might think you will find it interesting.


When you join in a session, you tap on the screen to "give hearts"  It's like showing that you had an "a-ha" moment or liked that thought. :) 

Periscope is connected with Twitter, so if you need to direct message me, you can do so there!

Periscope is relativity a new thing and teachers have recently taken it over and *might* have crashed it a few times.

As a side note- if I can't comment and only give hearts, I probably won't share to my followers.  And unless it is maybe a FF or a dollar store/spot Periscope, I probably won't even watch.  It's all about interacting with your followers. #realtalk!

Some years, they draw randomly, 
some years they make pictures!

Write the room

For Daily 5 we combine classes and each room does a different rotation.

Here are half books with children's names and photos in them.
In the upper right corner you can see the recording sheet--
where they draw their friend and write their names.

 Here is the "sh" word family sheet that is another option.
