Peek at my Week!

Guess what time it is!

It's time to link-up with Mrs. Laffin's Laughings, to tell what's happening next week.




Social Studies

I love teaching Social Studies! 

This week we're starting a new chapter on the Puritans and the Massachusetts Bay Colony.  During vacation week, I worked very hard to create an interactive flipchart.  Creating this flipchart turned into an enormous undertaking, but the final product contains so much information, pictures, primary sources, review check-ins and video clips.  If you want to check it out, there's a link below the map.

 Math

I love geometry!

This week in Math, we'll be continuing on with slides, flips and turns while continuing to work on our multiplication facts.


  Writing

I love this writing prompt!
 
I saw this most adorable idea in a blog this week - I need to start writing this information down so I give proper credit.  Any way, the prompt was to write about something that has been said to you 100 times.  That got me thinking about what I say to my students 100 times:

*Write your name on your paper.

*Make sure you have 2 sharp pencils.

*When we line up:  "Single, straight, silent."

*Remember that sentences begin with a capital letter and have an end mark.

*Indent when you start a paragraph.

Here are 2 examples of what my father used to say - probably more than 100 times, too:

*"It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice."

*"Patience is a virtue."

I think I just went off on a tangent, but I just couldn't help myself - thanks for reading along!

Have a wonderful week!

  1. I think the two things I say the most to my students are "Shhh....." and "You're either part of the problem, or part of the solution." I swear, I am a broken record some days....

    Thanks for linking up!
