Welp, my goal of a weekly blog post=so far not working out for me! I don't even have much time to get this post written, because it's already 11:18 p.m., and when your day starts at 7:15 (and by "when your day starts" I mean instructional staff hours are 7:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), well sleeping by midnight is usually a goal! :)
One goal I have been keeping up with though is taking more pictures of my classroom. I never realized what a visual person I am until I noticed that:
1. When I do classroom observations, all I really want to do is look around at what is on the walls of each teacher's room.
2. I cringe at anchor charts I make that are messy and feel tempted to make them again (I've been known to "prettify" my anchor charts overnight!).3. I scroll through blog posts and stop and read the ones with pictures I like.
So, here in fewer words and more pictures is how I manage centers in my class:
|This chart shows what center students will be going to each day.|
Filled with anchor charts galore (and trust me, I know some of these anchor charts need to be re-done!)
|I recently starting adding the vocabulary charts we make each week for reading comprehension as a challenge for my higher students.|
