Aloha friends and Happy Easter!! I hope all of you are enjoying your day with loved ones and eating a few chocolate bunnies or Cadbury eggs along the way!
This was a three day weekend for me and since I had an extra day I decided to join Deedee's Peek At My Week Linky.
I have admired everyone's plans for awhile and finally decided to share my own. This was no small feat let me tell you!!
I love that I can look at this and quickly get a snapshot of my week!! If you click on the pictures it will take you to the Powerpoint in Google Docs. I could not make it into a PDF file because then all of the links wouldn't work. So my cute fonts don't look as nice :(
I WILL figure out how to do this for next time!!
Once I started creating I realized how many wonderful resources I use that have been created by other teachers.
Each week I have a Star Student, but this year I called it Surfer of The Week. My friend Tanja from Journey of a Substitute Teacher had this great pack. It is perfect for my students to share out about themselves.
The rest of the class writes a nice letter to our Surfer. I place them up on our Surfer of The Week board and then turn it into a nice book at the end of the week.
For my Daily 5 rotations I am using Lori's Writing Through The Spring to place in my Writing Center and my Sunshine and Rainbow literacy centers will be in my Word Work area.
On Fridays we always read the latest issue of Scholastic News. This week I got some exciting news from Scholastic News. One of their representatives contacted me and asked me if I would like to be a 2nd Grade advisor for them.
Basically I read each issue with my class and then fill out a survey letting them know my thoughts on it. The editors may also contact me and ask for my opinion on some of their issues throughout the year. The best part about it is that I get paid in Scholastic Gift Certificates! More books and resources for my class? Yes please!!
Writer's Workshop is all about Rain this week, since we have had A LOT of it lately!
I was so excited to find a new Earth Day resource from Anna over at Simply Skilled In Second!
She makes some amazing resources and you need to check her out if you haven't already!
I am also using a new addition Scoot Game for my Intervention block from Gina over at Beach, Sand and Lesson Plans.
Finally this week we will be starting with our Beach Bucks. The kids are just so excited they cannot stop talking about their money and jobs!! They will get their first paycheck on Friday!
The rest of my plans are pretty easy to figure out, but if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Oh! The Math Facts Masters is something I use in my class that I haven't really finished yet. Once I develop it fully I will share:)
Don't forget to stop by Deedee's fabulous blog and check out all the other amazing visual plans.
