By the way, did I mention I'm also a teacher? Wait. No, my first priority is being a teacher. I'm so happy that I have such a wonderful class this year! We are going into our fourth week of school already. I cannot believe it! Our Daily 5 & CAFE is well under way and we are launching our new Word Study program and Word Work this week. The fifth grade teachers are joining us in the Word Study program and we decided to take some time to really get everything together before launching. Plus, it takes quite a bit of time to get the students assessed. Our FAB-U-LOUS Literacy Coach is also helping, and we are all so excited to see the progress the students will make this year in spelling.
I hope you accept my long-winded apology and will stick with me throughout this madness I call the 2011-2012 school year! I promise there will be many more classroom ideas and freebies to come!
