Today was full of adventure! We covered the Letter Bb, rhyming, addition, handwriting, math centers, space (planets), and too top off everything Mrs. Ayala lost her phone :( I am just not sure what happened, the only thing I can think of is that it grew legs and just walked out on me LOL. Hopefully one of the kids doesn't come tomorrow and say OOOPS! I took this by accident, that would be funny.
The highlight was when the kids used the new clipboards that I got over the weekend. It just so happens that last week in our curriculum one of the suggested activities was to "Write the Room" with clipboards, but I was disappointed because I did not have enough for a small group (my biggest group is 6 students) so I modified it and just had them write in thier journal at an independent table. Well TARGET has some really cute small ones in their dollar section. I tried it out today, the kids loved it, they felt so important walking around the room with their little clipboard and pencil, I was amazed at how many words they wrote down! Even my kids who do not like to write did so well.
I would like to try and do this activity consistantly, maybe on wednesdays or something. We shall see.
It's funny that now I have started this blog and I encourage students to visit the site, they all want their picture taken :)
"Mrs. Ayala aren't you going to take our picture?" ( So I rush to pull out the camera :)
I am a currently an Instructional Facilitator in Harlingen Tx, and I love my JOB! I have found some awesome resources on various blogs and thought I would broaden my horizons and create one of my own. I love researching for upcoming lesson and themes and I love creating my own word & powerpoint documents to use in my classroom. My goal is to provide as many resources that I can for teachers to help their students be successful and provide differentiated instruction. I love collaborating and sharing new ideas! Sharing is Caring:)
HI to all my parents who are visiting my blog. I enjoy working with all of my students everyday! It is a very fulfilling moment when I come around the corner in the morning and see their excited faces, what ever I had going on in the morning or the day before gets erased with those excited learners :)
