Peek at My Week

I'm sitting here at school in a big mess! I've recently changed some small groups around and need to get myself far more organized! Luckily my BFF Target has so many cute things to help me accomplish that! :)
I haven't linked up in awhile, but I'm going to today!

        In Math, we are continuing learning division facts through fact families. Our next couple of lessons included word problems. My kids struggle so much with word problems! They can never seem to figure out which operation to use! Any suggestions?! On Thursday and Friday, we do review groups. Where 2 groups are in a center, and 2 groups are with teachers (myself and my coteacher) for reteaching and enrichment. I hope to get some new activities made today for my groups. I'm thinking an I have, Who has? game and some QR codes!
          In Reading, our basal has an expository nonfiction text called If You Made a Million. In small groups, I will be using the leveled readers and doing some math related things. It's quite a difficult text for 3rd graders!
         In Science we're continuing to learn about adaptations. I think I'm going to assign students an animal and have them research that animal in the computer lab and library books and write a paragraph on the animal.
          In Social Studies, we're almost finished with our Unit 2 presentations on geography and how it affects communities.
           We will also be doing a fun project for our school carnival's auction.
A great example of a classroom project! All students participating, each students fingerprint identified in the key below, creating a contemporary, universally appealing piece with a whole lot of sentiment!   "Kindergarten Class Auction Project - Chicago Skyline -- finished!"
I found this class auction idea on Pinterest. It is of the Chicago skyline. I want to use a landmark in our town...
I can't wait to see how it turns out!

We started a new month for our Homework Club(read all about that here)...check out how many kiddos get a punch for week 1!
11 out of 21! Including 1 student who did not have a single week last month! Compare that to week 1 last month...
8 out of 22!

We're improving! :) Remember you have through today to enter the Rafflecopter for your chance to win a copy of my newest product!

Have a wonderful week!

  1. Homework is always a tough subject to manage. I have found that every year I assign less and less -- and yet my students still learn the same amount. I'm glad it is improving for you. Spring is always the toughest time of year for homework completion in my school.

    That is such a cool auction idea! I think I saw something similar to that on Pinterest too. Love it!

    Thanks for linking up!
