Today I am linking up with Mrs. Laffin's for her new linky, A Peek at my Week!
Monday night we have Open House at my son's daycare! At Open House, we find out who his new teachers are and visit the classroom. I'm looking forward to it!
Here are some things we'll be doing in my 5th grade classroom!
- We will be writing our first narrative about someone special in our life. We'll be referring to our heart maps to get ideas of who to write about.
- We will read Pink and Say to review the Civil War before moving to our first unit on Reconstruction.
- We will begin a unit on forces and motion in Science!
- We will begin our first unit in Math where students will learn about the order of operations and expressions.
I am determined to have better time management this week. Last week was the first week back to school and first time teaching 5th grade and I was a bit overwhelmed. This week I am going to do better with time management. New grade, new standards, new Math text, new everything = frazzled teacher! ;)
And that is a good look at my upcoming week! Today my goal is to finish laundry and get things ready at my house to make this week run even smoother!
