I'm linking up with Jivey for her monthly edition of Workshop Wednesday! Instead of every week, we'll do one each month.
This month's theme is one I can get behind BIG time because it's all about Pinterest! I'm sure there are tons of you with me who are crazy about Pinterest, too. I spent a long time last summer reorganizing my boards and probably have about 8 boards that are related to teaching only. Please feel free to follow me here!
Now for the pins. I didn't do any math pins because I don't teach it, however I do have a board for math, science, and social studies ideas that I made when I was teaching 4th grade.
In the upper grades, it's such a huge thing to focus on your thinking as a reader. Since I work with the struggling readers, I see this need even more. Many of my students just rush through a book and never stop to think about what's going on. I love this anchor chart with codes for thinking.
In fifth grade for VA, students have to take the writing SOL. We have some very weak writers, and so I want to focus on expanding sentences to make them more interesting. I also plan on using Jivey's Mentor Sentences. I've already pinned her second pack that she just finished, and I'm hoping to buy it soon!
