Thanks @colbysharp for the great idea for a regular reflection post!
Last week I loved:
5. We welcomed a student teacher. Liz is going to be with us part-time through January. She is observing at the beginning, but will have some teaching responsibilities as well.
4. Parent Conferences- This week was parent-teacher conference day and it was great to meet with so many families. I was especially happy that so many third graders came along to their conference- it really helps when we are all together!
3. Class Get Together- Our class parents organized a Saturday family get together, It was super to see so many families there and new friendships were reinforced. All students had the opportunity to carve a pumpkin- which was a new experience for many.
2. Multiple Intelligence Rotations- We set up a series of activities where students can experience each of the eight “multiple intelligences” and see which ones are easier and harder for them. I really like helping them to see that there are many ways of being smart.
1. Books are flying off the shelves- Not only are my students reading loads, but students from other classes are coming in nearly every day to borrow books. I LOVE that students (and teachers) feel they can borrow books from our room, because I want everybody to love books.
Coming up this week- International Day- a busy, but fun week before break!
