Moving to 3rd Grade

I just found out that I will be leaving my beloved 2nd grade and moving to 3rd grade.  3rd grade is the first grade to be tested on our statewide test.  My principal wants me in 3rd grade as I am a strong leader and know what is right for the students.  Please wish me luck in my new endeavour.  Now to move classrooms.  My room will be smaller and even less storage.  I have no idea what I am going to do!

mimio pad

I was fortunate enough to have someone give me a new mimio pad.  But I don't have the thing I put on the whiteboard so that we can work interactively.  I am so upset.  They cost too much to buy!

Math workshop

I had so much fun yesterday at my district math training.  I am one of the trainers.  We are discussing how to implement/combine Everyday Counts Calendar Math and the daily routine from our math series, Math Expressions.  It has been so cool to see teachers' lightbulbs come on when we show them how to use our required curriculum.  I am working with 3 other district teachers who have such wonderful ideas.  I had not met any of them before we met at the beginning of June.  We have worked great together and I feel that I have met 3 new friends.  We also have had make and takes in the afternoon.  I will share pictures of our make and takes later.  I keep forgetting my camera.  I will also let you know that I have shared Teachers Pay Teachers and the blogger site.  I want other teachers in my district to see what awesome ideas there are in the educational world.  Thanks again for all you do.  Have a great day!!!!!
