I love these 5 for Friday linky parties. I really enjoy seeing the snapshots from everyone's week. I had a pretty busy week.
1. On Monday I had a curriculum map meeting--
The curriculum mapping is tedious at times and there are software problems at times. However, it's really helped me delve into the standards. It's made me really look at them and interpret them. I even volunteered to map for reading. We're adopting a new reading series...so I'll be mapping uncharted territory with the CCS as my guide.
|I do like that I can access the book online...easy planning from home?|
I do a Six-Traits writing packet. We are learning to add details to our writing. We were describing ourselves, what we like to do, and how we do it.
Left: (describing self) -->wicked awesome
Right: (describing self)--> redneck
Oh these kids.
We learned about synonyms this week. We went on a little synonym roll hunt after we defined synonym and talked about examples. You can find the idea here from Finally in First
