Hey there! I am gearing up for back to school and I was preparing my resources for Meet the Teacher night. I have a fantastic set of pages that I have used every year since 2013 that I recently updated to include a Spanish version.Read more
Hey everyone! I am here today to share with you my lesson plans from the first week of school of third grade. I know a lot of us are gearing back up for school to start, and you might be looking for some ideas. These lesson plans are from when I taught third grade, but I have cleaned them up a bit and made sure they made sense. (We all know how those back to school lessons get shifted and modified as we go!)Read more
One thing I am striving for with my recent move to 3rd grade is to foster and encourage collaboration in my classroom. I see time and time again students who don’t know how to work together or how to be respectful towards their peers!
Our students HAVE to be able to agree, disagree, collaborate, cooperate, and work as a team. They can’t do that if we don’t show them how! The cards below will help you do this starting on day 1 of your school year.
Being in a new grade level, however, I know I have to take baby steps or else it won’t work for me. I created these job collaboration cards to make sure my kids are held accountable for their group work.
This little ole’ blog has sure seen some tumbleweeds the couple of months. I’ve been a little busy teaching routines and wrangling six year olds and making sure no one got lost and tying shoes and OH YEAH, teaching!
I’m sure you can relate.
So now here it is, the most wonderful time of the year.
Cue the carols. And the holiday treats!
