Wow! It is November...already?
Where has the school year gone!
It seems like this school year is passing by so quickly for me...and I can't seem to fit everything in that I want to... or get caught up for that matter. Ugh!!!!!
Anyhoo....it is that time again.
You know...Currently time.
Currently with Farley.
I thought I would at least take a moment or two for my little blog (who I have been terribly neglecting) to share what is CURRENTLY going on in my neck of the world.
So here goes...
Outside of teaching....did I mention that I have a family? Yes, I have a wonderful husband who is so supporting of the astronomical amount of time I spend at school this year. I have a intelligent/handsome son who is in middle school and a beautiful daughter who is in 2nd grade.
Does anyone feel like it is difficult these days to balance the expectations of home and school with all of these common core expectations?
I know I am currently living for the weekend because that is the ONLY time I really have to do laundry, clean house, and spend time with my family. It seems that during the school week, I am so swamped between teaching, meetings, parent/teacher conferences, lesson planning, etc. etc. etc. I come home and literally FALL into bed completely exhausted.
I keep searching for a happy balance...but I haven't found it yet. I am sure it is out there...let me know if you have found it and please give me a clue of it's location. LOL!
Enough of that!
Here are a few pics for you of what I have been doing in school...(unfortunately, I can't remember if I already shared these...blame it on the STRESS...so if I already did...please excuse me).
These images are of some of the Math Workstations that I have been using for the month of October. Not sure at this moment where I got them from but I am sure I can search it down if you are truly interested (just let me know).
My students have been working on fluency to 5 and after giving assessments last week, I had 100% mastery. I am so proud of them! Now we are moving on number through 10.
Of course, I have to go in to school tomorrow to change out my math workstations. If I remember, I will take pics and share the new workstations.
If you have stuck with me for this long post, thanks for reading!
Oh, and don't forget to link up with Farley and tell us what is currently going on in your life.
Until next time...
