Bourbon Street was hoppin'.
Loved the start of the game.
Love the Superdome and the air conditionin'!
Here is the beginnin' of the sort. I gave some of my boys my binder with the Math and ELA Common Core Standards for 5th grade and asked them to sort them. They decided to use the Post-It notes to get themselves organized. Be still my beatin' heart...I was swoonin'.
Look at this! Are they good or what? They did this pretty much without any direction from me other than me handin' them the binder with all of the standards. They made a pretty big dent, but we still have some work to do.
Now...this is where I need your help? Do I make a basket for each group of games or do I keep them in this large plastic tub with some kind of divider? What do you use in your class to house these games? All of the manila envelopes are laminated, so they are pretty sturdy. Keep in mind...I switch grade levels every year, so I need a system that will help me be able to transition into the next grade easily without changin' everything, every year. Ideas?
I've also made a new discovery.
Have you signed up for CoreStand's Core Weekly newsletter via email?
Each week they have been sendin' an email with a download to a FREE literacy template tied to a current event. The template also includes a link to a current event article on Time for Kids.
Here is an example of an article: Time for Kids: History of Labor Day
The graphic organizer has a question to answer in the areas of Reading, Writing, Language, and Speaking & Listening. Each newsletter includes a template for Elementary and Grades 6-12.
We have already completed three articles in my class and the kids really seem to be enjoyin' them. Some literacy, technology, and writin' all tied together. What's not to love?
Be sure to check out everyone else's ideas on Monday Made It. I can't wait to come home after school and catch up on the past 3 days on Bloglovin' and answer some emails from this weekend...preferably not on my phone!
