I'm planning on starting off the first week of school teaching about lines.
My 3rd to 5th graders are going to do 3D line sculptures.
Our Reading Specialist gave me this book The Straight Line Wonder by Mem Fox at the end of last year and it is adorable. It's about 3 straight lines that are friends and how one of the straight lines wants to express himself and try out other types of lines. You can click on the title to find it on Amazon, it's a little expensive so maybe you can find someone who has a copy to lend you.
First week back I assign students to seats (it helps me to remember their names). We go over rules and we chat a bit about our summer. I love to gush at students and tell them how tall they got over the summer and how great they look. Soooo I'm kind of looking forward to tomorrow....... but I'm pretty sure all us teachers could use another week or two to gear up for the NEW YEAR!
Thanks for Reading! And have a great year!
