Because of the new Common Core Standards that were adopted a couple years ago, lots of changes are being made in the way teachers are teaching various subjects. I am excited about teaching kids more about reading like detectives and writing competently. We collaborate more and learn from each other! Watch this video to see one person's opinion about where good ideas come from.
Furthermore, Math sure seems different! I am not a Math teacher, but my daughter is in 6th grade and I see the changes. Watch this video to understand the changes a little better.
In room 1, students work independently; they work in pairs; they work in small groups. They present their ideas in a variety of ways. Here is a video of students (posted with parent permission) participating in Reader's Theater in order to help them better comprehend the character's personalities.
I LOVE teaching your kids. We are all learning so much together. I must be doing something right. This sign was taped to my door last week:
And HERE are this week's GUEST BLOGGERS
Who is this famous person?
This person was in a movie called Aladdin and was in Aladdin King of thieves. He died of suicide. He was a comedian. He was also in the movie Patch Adams. This man died on August 11, 2014. He was born July 21, 1951. He is one of my favorite actors. His family was really sad about his death. When I found out, I was devastated. He is an only child, but he does have a half-brother and a half-sister. He was born in Chicago.
Question of the Week
I asked my mom “What is your favorite football team?”
She said “49ers”. Did you know that the 49ers won 5 Super Bowls? Did you know Joe Montana led the 49ers to 3 Super Bowls? Did you know that the 49ers have been to 6 Super Bowls and won 5 of them and lost 1? Did you know the 49ers have 14 hall of famers? Did you know that the 49ers were the first team in San Francisco? I like the 49ers because they are our home team. All in all the 49ers are an awesome football team.
1. I’m a Christian, I love God , and I like to sing worship music. I go to New Life Church!!!!! It is a Pentecostal church! I love my Pastors and I love the church members, and reading your bible and praying every morning is very important.
2. I love school, doing work is awesome. I get sooooo bummed out when the school day is over, and when each period ends, and I also love getting on the bus every morning almost not getting a seat and having to sit with someone I don’t know feeling awkward the whole ride.
3. I’m allergic to Mosquitoes.
