Although I've been absent from my blog since school officially started, I have been plotting and planning.... just in a notebook, rather than on line. I mentioned before that I get struck with ideas at odd times (usually the shower or during monotonous activity). My thoughts are definitely sketched out, now I just need to get them down for you to read!
Next week, I'm going to share my passion, tips and tricks for word study (by default- I'm a teacher trainer in our district) with a full week of Words Their Way. I will include a bunch of pictures so you can witness the crazy that is first grade word study.
Here is my plan so far:
Monday: Scheduling and Planning
Tuesday: Open and Closed Sorts
Wednesday: Additional Activities & Practice Opportunities
Thursday: Word Work books
Friday: Game Day!
I'm off to watch some mindless TV, while reading over some student writing. Happy almost-weekend!
