Tell Me Something Good
I love sharing something good - and Rowdy in First Grade has a linky party for that!
Something good at school: Tuesday, I got the base 10 blocks out and we started some basic addition regrouping. No worksheets, just them making numbers with their base 10 blocks and then adding some one blocks and then doing some trading, I mean, regrouping. Yeah, most of my kiddos were right there with me. And I'm realizing I haven't done enough of the no worksheets part, so I'm going to try harder at that!
Something good at home: This afternoon, my husband and I went to a wedding. I don't really know the bride, I'm friends with her mom. But it was so nice and full of their love for each other. It just gives me a warm fuzzy.
Oh, please, can I add one more - Something good at home and school: I enjoy reading Math Coach's Corner. She's recommended some books and when I emailed her, she was nice enough to narrow that down to one that I went ahead and ordered. It will be here Thursday, I say with my fingers crossed.
She recommended Teaching Student-Center Mathematics. I can't wait for it to get here, so I can read it at home and implement it at school :)
And the best part is - I forgot I had a $10 gift card to Amazon, so I can still order more books, ahahaha!
What's going good in your corner of the world? Linky up with Rowdy in First and share!
And finally, do I have to take my JOY button off? I'd like to have joy all year long. Wouldn't you?
Lesson Planning Weekend - hope to get lots done. Hope you are having a nice weekend yourself.
