Well, it's not just the weather that has made this a crazy year. My schedule at school keeps changing. I think I'm on my 8th version of the original. Classes get moved around, interventions change and priorities get reassigned. It's a good thing I'm flexible! :)
Starting Monday, I will begin a new intervention group using the Comprehension Toolkit program. Are you familiar with this program? It helps students really understand informational text. A few weeks ago, I shared our goal of moving "gray area" kids up. This intervention will hopefully do just that.
In my guided reading groups this week, we will be working on point of view. I love teaching this topic because I get to use some really fun mentor texts!
Many of these are from my favorite genre -- fractured fairy tales. Can't wait!
We were supposed to have a day off of school this upcoming Friday, but due to the two polar vortexes that blanked the country, we now have school. :(( Oh well, spring break is only something like six weeks away. I wonder if there will still be snow....
So what do you have going on this week? I'd love it if you would link up and share your plans.
Have a great week! Stay warm!!
