A Peek at my Week!!!!

Hey guys and dolls, how's it going?

For the first time ever, I'm linking up with Deedee over

a Peek at my Week linky!!!

FYI, she has an awesome lesson plan template that

you can get on her fan freebie page on FB!!!!

Go on over and check it out!!

Ok, this is definitely NOT what my lesson plans looked like last year,

but I'm trying to find a better way to plan. 

At my school, people usually get together and write lesson plans,

and then send them out to the grade levels. 

I don't want to do it that way, because then you tend to just get it

and not even look at what you're supposed to be doing!!! we go!!

Our reading series has 3 weeks of Start Smart, and there really isn't a small group time.

It's designed to use this time to teach procedures and routines, 

so I've been teaching center procedures during this time. 

And of course, trying to meet a little bit in small group anyway!!!

But it's not happening!!! Ah, well..........

The next 2 slides contain my literacy & math center activities. 

Some of the literacy centers are blank, because I haven't taught them as of yet. 

These are the centers that we're going to be learning in the coming weeks. 

We are an AMSTI (Alabama Math Science Technology Initiative) school,

and we use Investigations for math. 

A lof of my math workshop, which is what they call it, is chosen for me,

but I do have to add in order to cover skills that they do

not teach, such as number recognition and writing. 

Yep, go figure!!

Also, you have one day left to enter my pencil sharpener giveaway!!!

  1. Hi Angela! Are you using Treasures for reading by chance? Thanks for sharing your plans! It's taking me longer to get to groups than I expected as well, don't worry! (And it sounds like a lot of other bloggerland buddies are having similar situations this year!)
