However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that.
Saturday, August 25, Week One Thanks for all the words of encouragement this week, especially from my "still on summer break teacher friends"! Yes, I just loved getting the phone pics of you all poolside as I sat in my sauna-like room at the end of a long hard day.
There is so much I need to go over and train them on. I did start working on reading strategy training and began by reading a long time favorite.
I know that Chrysanthemum is a popular book to read at the beginning of the year so I was glad to see that yet again my group of third graders enjoyed this well loved story.
Before even showing the book, I just show the word: I tell them that third grade is just full of big words and that good readers are good chunkers. This is where we grab "Chunky Monkey" off the board and I demonstrate how to decode the word "Chrysanthemum" by breaking it into its 4 syllable parts.
I teach these in a whole group setting and then coach those kids who need it during guided reading sessions. Even the strongest readers in the bunch can benefit from practice in breaking three and four syllable words.
They insisted I add my name and so we did. They cut out the names and I gave them the task to see how many ways they could think of to sort these words. They came up with lots of ideas like: I also used this book during math time to get a general idea of their level of number sense.
I demonstrated with my first name and together the students and I thought of many different ways to get to the number 5. We used tally marks and a clock face. We thought of so many for mine that we ran out of time for theirs and they ended up taking it for homework.
You can find a free download of this sheet here: Here is another math sheet I used to get an idea of what they could do with numbers:Charlie Brown continues to write, "I wish it were snowing huge white flakes, and you and I were walking along holding hands and." Charlie Brown stops and looks at the paper.
Charlie Brown crumples up the paper and throws it over his shoulder. Insight: Paradise Mayor Jody Jones / Trump Tours Camp Fire With Brown, Newsom / Photographing Fire / Political Junkie Ken Rudin. Paradise Mayor Jody Jones says her town is ready to rebuild.
As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
Vienna is the most fully enriched location, and seems to be in roughly the same situation as Oslo. Many thanks to Hermes for the translation from attheheels.com To be very honest, I have hesitated to write and publish information about Charlie here, because over the years I personally have had some very spiritually painful experiences with living visionaries/mystics, and am therefore very cautious and reserved when it comes to speaking or writing about such persons.
