Wow! What a busy week! It was a short week, but we were just working away learning all we could in the time we had. I squeezed in a
long informative meeting even!
We are working, working so hard in my K groups on learning our names. For whatever reason, it seems the letters are having trouble sticking, but we ARE making progress! Yay for that!! We will still be building and writing our names most days this coming week because we are not ready yet to move on. My ABC chart gets a work out every day as we read that thing ALL the time. I keep them in plastic sleeves to protect them from the little fingers that run across them all day long.
We will be using the name poem Birds in a Tree. It is a freebie! If you missed my post last week, click here to pick it up!
My classes are still on making connections between texts, so we are continuing with the theme of respect- which is also our character word for the month. I like to do a read aloud on Tuesdays to introduce or review my comprehension skill . That is why I have Farmer Duck in the plans for several grades. If you have not read that book, it is a GREAT one!
Second and Third Grades are moving along too. We need to do some review over our short vowels though. I hope we can spend a couple weeks on that and then move on quickly to a silent e long vowel review. It is a constant push to keep moving forward with our skills!
Last week, due partly to the meeting, my third graders didn't get through everything I had planned. So I had to move it to this week. Teachers have to be flexible if nothing else, don't we? I hate not to stay on schedule, but life happens.

RtI is starting soon for us. I will switch over to posting RtI plans. Does your school start RtI soon or have you already begun?
