Back into Action

Students are back from holidays and we are back into action. We have been busy working hard on math with our unit on multiplication. Kiddos are really enjoying getting to learn about equal groups. Awesome work going on in this room!

We have been working on our Solar System Unit. Students worked with an awesome app called Planets. They could see planets in line from our location on Earth. and constellation in the sky that are around us. They also got to see images of all the planets.

In this year of school we have a new curriculum that during my pinnacle meeting we had to pick a Christmas movie that reminded me of how the first semester was like. I stated that it was like Charlie Brown Christmas, trying to find the true meaning of common core. So now I have to reflect about how the 2nd semester will be. I feel as though that this has been a year of learning. New grade level, new curriculum across the board and new colleagues. It has been trying at times and also enlightening. I work with an awesome group of ladies. We are working together to provide the best learning for our students. We are dedicated educators that are planning and guiding each other as we learn this new curriculum together. It truly is the meaning of what our profession is about. This is a great resources for myself and my students. When you have 6 minds working together to bring the best lessons together! I love my job and my students!!!!

  1. You are so right! The beginning of this year was quite challenging! Implementing the Common Core as well as Investigations and Lucy Calkins was tough at times. Having a team that works and plans well together makes a huge difference. Like you, I am fortunate to work with four awesome teachers/friends! Your blog looks great! I always enjoy seeing and hearing what your class is up to!
