Summer sure does seem to fly by! I can't believe that we are already back to school! It sure has been an exciting summer for both of us as we both have taken on new positions at a another school where we still get to work with each other! We are loving our new school family! We are so proud and excited to be apart of the amazingness happening! Check out all the fun we had this summer!
Also with the move I am now teaching 2nd grade and could not be more thrilled! Here is a sneak peek at my new classroom!
Freshly painted door!
Word wall and Reading Focus Wall
Can't wait to start teaching Greek and Latin Roots to these little ones!
Thanks for checking out my new room! Check back soon for some new classroom updates!
know that Reading Necklaces play a key role as a motivator! The tags are very effective-kids LOVE them! The only disadvantage to the tags is they are a bit pricey! We did not want the cost to serve as a deterrent to utilizing the necklaces! SO we have created our own tags! Just copy on card-stock, laminate, cut, punch and wear!
When we started our necklaces they were simply the kids' "Reading Necklaces." However, they grew into much more! They became a necklace that celebrated many accomplishments of the students. You could use a ball/chain necklace, a wrist band, or simply a silver ring! We will continue to add to our line of tags. You will be amazed at the power of these little tags to motivate your students!
We wanted to bring attention to the Reading Olympians in ACTION page of our blog! The program is growing quickly and we are thrilled to have Reading O in classrooms throughout the country! Thanks to all who have implemented!! We feel the BEST way to learn about the program is to see how teachers
are actually using it!
