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
It’s always a huge sigh of relief when that last kid is gone on the last day of school. Time to breathe a little easier!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.
Why, with cake and ice cream in bed, of course!
