I am pretty much a Pandora FREAK! I find myself turning it on and rockin' out all the time. When I stay after school, I turn on my loud speaker and bust out some singing. Thank goodness my students don't see it :)
I really love/think/want/need spring brink to be two weeks. What do you think?
My advice comes to you from my university days. The president of the university told us to choose to be extraordinary. I, like most college students, kind of blew off that advice. It has taken me 5 years to realize that maybe that president was on to something. I try to use any opportunity I can to reinforce the idea of "being extraordinary is a choice" to my 10 and 11 year olds in my classroom.
Now for the BIG, HUGE, EXCITING news!!
I finished my Common Core Aligned Poetry Unit for 4th and 5th grades! It is called "Paintin' a Picture with Poetry" and it is going to rock your world! It comes in both color and printer friendly versions and has some fabulous resources for comparing similar topics, comparing multimedia/visual representation, summarizing, comparing themes, etc. Don't wait ANY longer! Check it out at my Teacher's Pay Teachers Store
I want to give a MAJOR shout out to 2nd Grade Stuff for all of her knowledge and patience with me and I officially uploaded my first unit! Thanks, girl! You are such a great teacher, even to grown adults! :)
Thanks, ya'll for stopping by! Now I need to blog HOP a little more :)
