Thank you for stopping by for another Peek at My Week, my weekly linky party where we all share our plans for the upcoming week. Here's what I've got going on...
Teaching with a Mountain View. The passages were engaging and offered just the review I was hoping for!
After a quick assessment on Monday, I think we will be ready to move on to point of view.
A.R.: Do you use Accelerated Reader at your school? We do, and I absolutely love it. This Friday is A.R.'s "Read the Most From Coast to Coast" Challenge.
A.R. is challenging students to take 5 million quizzes on Friday. At our school, we are challenging students to read 5 million words on Friday. Last year, we read about 4.6 million, so I think we can do it! To sweeten things up a bit, our 4th grade and has challenged our 5th grade to see who can read the most on Friday. The grade that doesn't win will clean the desk of the grade that reads the most. (Yikes, I have seen those desks and it is not pretty!) Go 4th grade!!!
To get the kids revved up for a day of reading (yes, all we will be doing on Friday is reading, reading, reading...the kids are so excited!!), my teammates and I will be preparing breakfast for the entire 4th grade -- scrambled eggs, sausage, bagels & fruit. (Hopefully their bellies won't be so full that they fall asleep reading...)
