Well hey there!! I am ALIVE!!!!! LOL
I have been a little absent from Blogland these last few months but can I just tell you how much I have enjoyed my summer!!!!! I have taken some much needed time off to spend time with family and friends and I have loved every minute of it. Thank you so much for your understanding!! :)
But this time of year I always get that little flutter in my heart and excitement about the new school year that is quickly approaching!! :) Believe it or not, as of today I have not purchased one single solitary school supply!!! I think that will be changing very soon because I can only avoid the Target Back to School section for so long!!! I am really trying to scale down my purchases since our county has decided to scale down our salaries... but that is a whole blog post in itself!!! :) I do need to purchase new material for my bulletin boards but other than that I don't "need" anything.
This year our whole school will be using the Daily 5 during our reading block. My principal saw how effective it was in my classroom this year along with a few others that I enticed to try it so she has encouraged everyone to try it! Me and a few fellow teachers will help to lead and guide our staff through this process. I am very excited for them to try it!!
I also encourage you to do a little research into what the Daily 5 is all about if you don't know! You will not regret it!!! I promise!!! I will be posting about our adventure through the Daily 5 this year and will share the documents I have made and tips that have helped me.
